We employ different technologies to produce nonwovens with unique properties specific to each application.
Nonwovens produced from the extrusion of one or more polymers (such as PP, PE or PLA) into filaments, that are consolidated into a web through a thermal process. Fitesa has the world’s largest spunmelt bicomponent capacity and offers multiple colors, bonding patterns and other properties.
Nonwovens produced from the extrusion of polypropylene (PP) into microfilaments, forming a fabric with greater surface area. Optimized for superior adsorption or to form a barrier. Meltblown fabrics are known for their use as filters for face masks and respirators, but they can also be applied in oil sorbents and wipes, among others.
Nonwovens produced from the consolidation of a variety of fibers (such as PP, PE, PET, Rayon and Cotton) into a soft, lofty web through chemical, mechanical or thermal processes. Fitesa produces air-through bonded (ATB), resin bonded (RB), spunlaced, and thermobonded (TB) carded nonwovens.
Films & Elastics
Our films are produced through the extrusion of a variety of polymers, mainly polyethylene (PE) and elastomers. We produce elastic and nonelastic films that can be laminated with one or more layers of nonwovens and/or embossed and perforated.
Nonwovens produced from fluff pulp and consolidated into a web through chemical or thermal methods. Airlaid nonwovens can be further enhanced with super absorbent polymer (SAP), or combined with carded nonwovens for liquid distribution and absorption properties.
