A synthetic fiber known as fiber is created from a polyolefin, like polypropylene or polyethylene. Ropes, wallpaper, carpeting, and automotive interiors all employ it.
The benefits of olefin include its durability, comfort, and colorfastness as well as its resistance to stains, mildew, abrasion, and sunshine. It also has good bulk and cover.
Any long-chain synthetic polymer made of at least 85% by mass of ethene, propene, or other olefin units is considered to be a polyolefin fiber by definition. Polypropylene (PP) is by far the most widely used polyolefin fiber commercially.
The Global polyolefin fibers market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Beaulieu Introduces Fresh Fibers At IDEA , a significant “all solution provider” for polyolefin carded nonwovens in personal care and hygiene, geotextiles, automotive, floor coverings, and filtration applications, Beaulieu Fibers International (BFI), a top European supplier of polyolefin fiber, will solidify its position.
BFI will introduce its PET-core-BICO Fibers for hygiene applications as well as its new UltraBond staple fiber at this important North American exhibition, showcasing once more its dedication to assisting customers in remaining at the forefront of carded nonwoven goods.
The company’s product line has increased as a result of recent BFI investments, assisting producers in maximizing the use of their production equipment and pursuing interesting potential in developing markets.
The introduction of PET-core-BICO fibers and the full selection of Meralux fibers on display are highlights for IDEA19 attendees.
PET-core-BICO will be made available worldwide for use in hygiene applications at IDEA19. The company’s offering to the hygiene market is completed by this staple fibers.
It is available in both PP/PET and PE/PET polymer combinations, with a dtex range of 1,3-6,7dtex/40mm. The toughness and loft of the nonwoven are enhanced by the unique usage of PET in the core.
While the design with PP in the sheath satisfies the criteria, the use of PE in the sheath gives softness as required in top sheets, for example.
The full selection of Meralux-fibers, bicomponent fibers with a unique cross section shape that combines outstanding coverage and better liquid management in a single staple fibre, will also be on exhibit.
Because of the increased loft/bulk, distinctive opacity, and improved fluid distribution made possible by this, the dryness of nonwoven for hygiene and medical applications has significantly improved.
