Freudenberg upgrades Evolon microfilament fabric

Freudenberg Performance Materials has upgraded Evolon, a microfilament fabric by launching Evolon 3D, whose surface volume has increased and become more, refined, paving the way for other applications.

“Combining a top-of-the-range look with its fabric feel and its great mechanical resistance, Evolon has succeeded in replacing traditional textiles in areas such as bedding, decoration or even acoustics,” it said.

Due to a specific process integrated into the Evolon production line, water jets, already used to bind the material and generate the microfilaments, model the fabric’s structure on standard designs or on designs adapted to the specific needs of certain clients.

“Evolon 3D preserves the high performance of original Evolon, while increasing its bulkiness and volume and by taking on a feel and a look that are even more like fabric,” Freudenberg said in a press release.

Like the original Evolon, Evolon 3D can be washed again and again without losing its structure and it can be used white or dyed in colours of the client’s choice.

“Transfer printing multiplies the possibilities for design and personalisation and also produces very good results on Evolon 3D,” it added.

According to Freudenberg, in the ultra-light category or as low as 30g/m², the 3D structure reinforces the uniformity of microfilaments and increases ease of handling.

“This makes it possible to supply 3D microfilament wipes which are 1.5 to 2 times lighter than the lightweight wipes traditionally obtained using competing processes,” it informed.

Like the original Evolon, these 3D wipes offer the best cleaning performance in their category from the fineness and density of the microfilaments.

In addition, in its 100g/m² version, Evolon 3D enables a new generation of sports towels to be produced, just as ultra-compact, lightweight and effective, but with a traditional fabric look that consumers are used to.

“Evolon 3D will provide inspiration to designers who will be able to use the material in decoration, where Evolon is already valued for its matt look, lightness, ease of handling and its acoustic properties,” Freudenberg noted.

In keeping with Evolon’s clean production, which is free of solvents and chemical binders and with a minimum of production stages, the Evolon 3D structure is achieved without post-treatment and without the addition of chemicals.

Evolon fabrics are certified Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Product Class I, while the Freudenberg Evolon production facility is certified ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 50001.

The headquarters and manufacturing facilities of Freudenberg Evolon are located in Colmar, France. Freudenberg Evolon manufactures Evolon microfilament products using a unique, worldwide patented, textile manufacturing process.

Freudenberg Performance Materials generates sales of over €900 million and has more than 20 manufacturing sites in 14 countries and more than 3,800 associates. (AR)
