Fitesa Agro

Fitesa Agro is a 100% recyclable polypropylene nonwoven developed for agriculture. It features high air and moisture permeability and resists degradation from ultraviolet light on a variety of treated crops. Fitesa Agro forms a physical barrier against insects and other organisms and offers protection from climatic variations, such as frost, extreme cold and heat. Fitesa Agro creates a microclimate that encourages plant growth, while protecting plants against natural enemies.

Typical Applications:

  • Crop covers, fruit packaging.

Fitesa Block

Fitesa Block is a 100% polypropylene nonwoven with multiple thermally bonded layers produced by the SMS process. The external layers of continuous spunbond fibers provide abrasion resistance and strength with low dusting/linting. An internal layer of dense meltblown microfibers provides an excellent barrier against liquids and other contaminants. Fitesa Block is compatible with most sterilization methods, including saturated water steam, ethylene oxide, formaldehyde steam at low temperature and hydrogen peroxide and can be treated with special additives to make it suitable for use with gamma rays and E-beam.

Typical Applications:

  • Surgical drapes and gowns, sterilization wraps.

Fitesa EcoFabric

Fitesa EcoFabric is a line of nonwoven fabrics that contain renewable polymers or fibers made from renewable materials. These fabrics range from carded fabrics that contain cotton, rayon, or PLA fibers to spunmelt bicomponent fabrics that contain PLA resin or PE resin made from renewable feedstocks. These fabrics help hygiene manufacturers to meet their renewable or sustainable content goals without sacrificing finished product attributes or their manufacturing efficiencies.

Typical Applications:

  • Topsheet and backsheet for baby diapers and adult incontinence products.
  • Topsheet for fem care products.

Fitesa Filter

Fitesa Filter is a line of 100% polypropylene nonwovens produced by the meltblown process. It is an important component in the manufacture of face masks, which are ideal for high-risk environments. Its dense microfiber structure acts as an excellent barrier against particles and other contaminating agents, combining high filtration efficiency with excellent air permeability. Fitesa Filter can also be combined with one or more spunbond layers to provide abrasion resistance and strength.

Typical Applications:

  • Surgical masks, disposable industrial masks, air and liquid filters.

Fitesa Soft

Fitesa Soft is a line of very soft nonwoven fabrics designed to help hygiene manufactures meet consumer demand for hygiene products that are soft and comfortable. These fabrics range from soft carded fabrics, both thermal bond and air through bond, to spunmelt fabrics that achieve superior softness through special calendar bonding, special additives, special resins, and/or bicomponent structures containing PE.

Typical Applications:

  • Topsheet, backsheet, leg cuff, front and back ears, and side panels of baby and adult diapers and pants.
  • Topsheet for fem care products.

Fitesa Sorb

Fitesa Sorb is a line of polypropylene microfiber fabrics produced by the meltblown process for the containment, control and adsorption of leaks and spills of non-aqueous and/or aqueous fluids in manufacturing facilities, refineries and oil rigs. Due to its low density, it is also highly effective in the ocean, ponds, rivers, and lakes. It acts quickly, diminishing risks of environmental contamination. Fitesa Sorb can also be used in automotive care centers, maintenance, and environmental areas.

Typical Applications:

  • Adsorption of oils, general and aggressive liquids, absorption booms, pillows, pads, socks and rolls.

Fitesa Laminates

Fitesa Laminates are a line of fabrics that feature a layer or layers of Fitesa nonwoven fabrics combined with other substrates to deliver unique properties. Spunbond-meltblown (SM), spunbond-meltblown-spunbond (SMS), carded-film (CF) and spunbond-film (SF) laminates are examples.

Typical Applications:

  • Protective apparel, waterproof sheets, tablecloths, shower curtains, carrier bags, stretch belts for adult incontinence products
