Zinno to be born at the Index
Jan '08
The nonwovens manufacturer J. H. Ziegler experienced very strong growth at its two sites in Germany and Hungary – primarily due to its numerous innovative products. Major investments in the last two years have enabled Ziegler to significantly expand its product portfolio for applications in the automotive, furniture and general industries.

Ziegler invested close to half its annual turnover in new nonwovens facilities and in extending its customising activities. This benefits customers from all industrial sectors because nonwovens and customised products are now available from a single source for an ever increasing number of applications.

As a consequence of the numerous novelties, Ziegler has decided to exhibit for the first time at the world's largest nonwovens trade fair, Index, held in Geneva from 15 to 18 April 2008. Everyone will have a chance to see the new product portfolio.

Automotive industry:
Innovations include novel HACOflex foam/nonwoven composites for seats, which avoid wrinkling in leather upholstery, in particular. A novel fibre mixture significantly improves the compression recovery of seat padding – important for long-term and consistent comfort.

Nonwovens for insulating applications that have a greatly improved quality are now available thanks to new processing equipment and technical advancements. Statistical studies were used to develop very lightweight products that are excellent value for money.

The first, very lightweight insulating materials based on renewable resources have been developed. They are fully compliant with the requirements of the automotive industry with respect to absorption values, fire behaviour, odour as well as emissions and fogging values.
