Tomorrow For Nonwovens : Ciba Inc

Oct '08
Nonwovens are present everywhere. Be it comfy premises of your sweet home or the rugged industrial sites, these non conventional textiles are making themselves part of your lives in a way or other. With advent of advance technologies and augmenting commerce as well as industrialization, the need of such specialty fabrics is elevating rapidly.

Also known as technical textiles, these engineered fabrics may have a limited life as a single-use fabric or a long-lasting durability. Nonwoven fabrics are destined for specific functions such as absorbency, liquid repellency, resilience, stretch, softness, strength, flame retardancy, washability, cushioning, filtering, bacterial barrier and sterility.

With the combination of above properties, fabrics suited for specific jobs are often created, while achieving a good balance between product use-life and cost. They can mimic the appearance, texture and strength of a woven fabric and can be as bulky as the thickest paddings.

If combined with other materials they provide a spectrum of products with diverse properties, and are used alone or as components of apparel, home furnishings, health care, engineering, industrial and consumer goods.

Before being born as a fabric for non-conventional use, it undergoes various processes which include processing with respective effect additives and colorants according to its application and end-use.

Ciba, an eminent player in specialty chemicals, holds expertise in this application technology or say 'industry specific end-use knowledge', and offers a range of products and solutions for major markets including the Automotive, Packaging, Fibers, Home & Personal Care, Paper and Printing, Construction, Electronics, Water Treatment and Agriculture industries.

To know more about where this ubiquitous market of Nonwovens is heading to, read an exclusive interview of Ms Soke Meng Chan, Global Head (Marketing), Fibers Division, Ciba Inc, conducted by Face2Face team at Fibre2Fashion.com.
