Japanese manufacturer Fuji Spinning has begun sales of spunlaced nonwovens made of a special fiber "Chitopol," a polynosic fiber with chitosan engineered into it. The fiber has excellent antibacterial properties and will target applications such as surgical gowns, drapes and sheets. Fuji Spinning, a manufacturer of spun yarn, had sales of Y74.5 billion for the period ending in March 1993. The company currently has no nonwovens production facilities and is manufacturing the spunlaced materials through a subcontractor. Fuji expects to start sample distribution this month.
