Spunbonding expands in Korea.

Under a license from Japanese specialty paper manufacturer Nippon Kodoshi, Korean synthetic fabric producer Hanil Synthetic Fiber Industry has made plans to construct a spunbonded nonwovens line. The new plant, which is expected to be completed by September, 1994, will include a 3.4 meter spunbonded line with an annual capacity of 3000 tons. It will be capable of manufacturing both polyester and polypropylene spunbonded nonwovens and the primary market will be geotextiles. Investment in the facility is estimated at 1.3 billion [yen].

In addition to Hanil's spunbonded line, another Korean company, Cheil Synthetic Textile, is starting up a spunbonded polyester plant. The facility, with a capacity of more than 3200 tons annually, will utilize Toray technology. With an investment of approximately 10 million Wons, Cheil Synthetic Textile plans to have the plant operational by early 1995.
