Hoechst starts up facility, introduces bicomponent product.

A new 4000 ton annual capacity line came onstream in March at Hoechst AG's Berlin, Germany plant. The line, the second to be added in Berlin in the last two years, targets the geotextiles market. "We are very proud of this line," R. Groger, marketing manager, told NONWOVENS INDUSTRY. "It represents the most modern production technology." Hoechst will now move all its geotextile capacity from its Bobingen facility, freeing up that line for other product applications.

Hoechst has also developed a new type of "Trevira" bicomponent spunbonded product The company is building a line at its Bobingen facility for the bicomponent product, with expected startup this fall. Projected product launch is in early 1993, but the company would not reveal potential applications for the material.
