Wellman developing several new products in PSF sub-sector
Ireland-based Wellman International Ltd, which manufactures polyester staple fibres (PSF), is developing new products for adult incontinence hygiene uses and medical applications, lighter weight solutions for the next-generation automotive and aerospace applications, selected composites and niche high-performance apparel, according to company CEO Donal Breen.

The company recycles around 2.7 billion polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles per year, Breen told Fibre2Fashion in an interview.

The latest innovations in the PSF industry include next-generation PET BICO fibres, micro-splittable fibres, fibres with significantly enhanced hydrophilic/hydrophobic properties, fibres with tailored elastomeric properties and fibres based on renewable resources, he added. (DS)
