Beaulieu Fibres International, the leading European polyolefin fibre supplier, is set to present a pioneering new fibre-platform and offer detailed insights into the future-focused hygiene products with innovation and manufacturing capabilities, at Index17, the leading expo for nonwovens, held from April 4 to 7, 2017, in Geneva, Switzerland, in stand 1340.

From May 2017, Meralux fibres will be added to Meraklon product portfolio. First test results show that nonwovens made with the new Meralux fibre combinations have a higher loft/bulk. Meralux’s coverage is unique and provides nonwovens with a closed surface, without containing additives like TiO2. With the higher loft and unique coverage, softness will be provided by the choice of raw materials. Equipped with all these features, Meralux allows basis weight reductions without losing performance. Index17 visitors can experience nonwovens based on Meralux.

In line with the further diversification of its products, Beaulieu Fibres International is set to produce short cut fibres for hygiene application as of summer 2017. These will be available in cut lengths of 3-24mm in polypropylene (PP) mono and BICO.

To add to its new products for 2017, the Meraklon portfolio will expand further with the launch of new polyester (PET) core BICO fibres. They will come on stream with Meraklon’s new state-of- the-art, long line at the company’s site in Terni, Italy. The €30 million investment to extend production capacity is currently underway and is scheduled to commence operations during this year.

Petra Bohle-Stricker, global sales director- hygiene, Beaulieu Fibres International said, “Beaulieu Fibres International is continuing to strengthen its position as a global supplier for polyolefin fibres. Investment in fibres’ production is an important driver for ensuring we meet future challenges and customers’ needs. In the four years since Meraklon’s takeover, Beaulieu Fibres International has successfully adapted it to the level required to be a leading market player. We have broadened the portfolio significantly to better serve the future market needs and are continually innovating to ensure we go the extra mile for the nonwovens industry.” (GK)
