Freudenberg introduces hydroentangling line.

Freudenberg, Weinheim, Germany, has developed plans to build a commercial line for its hydroentangling technology. Several years ago the company installed a hydroentangled pilot line at its technical center in Weinheim; it recently began marketing products from the line. "For the first time we are getting more heavily involved in this area," Norbert Dahlstrom, managing director, told NONWOVENS INDUSTRY. "We have developed a whole range of specialty hydroentangled nonwovens."

Markets for the hydroentangled fabrics include interlinings, where the fabric can compete with woven products even during washing, medical and industrial specialty niches such as battery separators.

The company currently only has the pilot line at the technical center doing commercial production; a decision to build commercial production is expected this year.
