Polypropylene (PP) materials are popular choices for nonwoven fibres. Borouge offers a full range of polypropylene grades for use in a variety of nonwoven applications such as:
- Hygiene applications
- Medical applications
Our polypropylene product grades can be used to create nonwoven material using one of the three major techniques:
- Meltblowing: Meltblown is a technology to produce very thin fibres. Thin fibres are extruded and further elongated by means of hot air at high velocity. The fibres are then collected on a collection belt where they form a so called nonwoven. It is a random collection of thin fibres. The thinner the fibres, the smaller the openings or pores between the fibres.
- The spunbonded process: Our spunbonded grades have controlled rheology that secures stable spinning and excellent web formation combined with optimal web properties.
- Staple fibre production: these grades have a balanced morphology, rheology and additivation to secure optimal spinning and enhanced thermobonding performance.
For each fibre production technique, Borouge can tailor unique products such as specially designed gas-fading-free formulations that protect the fibre and fabrics from nitrogen oxide induced discolouration.
