Stearns Technical Textiles installs spunbonded line.

Signaling the company's entry into spunbonded nonwovens production, the 25th largest nonwoven roll goods producer, Stearns Technical Textiles, Cincinnati, OH, recently revealed plans to add a new spunbonded production line. The line, which is expected to be operational in early 1994, will be located at the company's Cincinnati facility.

Offering product and resin versatility, the machinery will supply new markets in the filtration and durable goods areas with lighter weight polyester spunbonded products. Various niche polypropylene markets, including highly specialized animal care products, will also be targeted. Healthcare and hygiene applications are also areas of future consideration, according to company president Morley Thompson, Sr.

"The installation of spunbonded capacity, which will be split between polyester and polypropylene, continues a Stearns tradition of having the ability to offer a variety of nonwoven technologies to a great many specialized markets," he said.
