PGI reveals new Spinlace materials at IDEA07

Apr '07
Polymer Group Inc debuted at IDEA07 its Spinlace materials, a new category of fabrics that deliver high performance at best- value pricing, representing the first in a new generation of nonwoven technologies that will be the cornerstone for future product development.

"PGI began working on this completely new category of engineered materials several years ago in response to anticipated needs of our customers."

"We drew on our broad technological and process expertise to develop a better solution," said Mike Hale, vice president and general manager, U.S. and Europe. "This investment will continue the global trend to optimize performance versus cost through technology and product research."

To make Spinlace fabrics, PGI developed the highly efficient manufacturing process that incorporates continuous filament with hydroentanglement and eliminates the carding step.

Additionally, the Spinlace process uses PGI's proprietary Apex technology to impart unique three-dimensional images directly into the fabric.

"We consider our current commercial initiatives to produce Spinlace materials as only the beginning of our efforts to develop a more efficient and dynamic method of incorporating continuous filament materials to achieve a variety of product attributes, including softness, strength, elasticity, bulk and more," Hale said.

"This new line is the first generation of technology that will serve as a platform for PGI's future growthin the nonwovens market. We are working to combine a series of technologies that result in an extremely robust process that can meet a variety of customer needs for product characteristics. These materials are capable of being used in a wide range of applications."
