Using PVOH for nonwovens

By September 29, 2021May 13th, 2022No Comments

Using our innovative PVOH, for melt spun fibres and spunmelt nonwovens offers high funtionality and versatile end of life options:

  • Allows high hydrolysis, water-soluble, polyvinyl alcohol fibres to be processed via melt spinning, without polymer modification, maintaining full polymer functionality and end-oflife biodegradation
  • Staple fibres can be used as functional fibres or in combination with others, such as biopolymers and cellulosics, with high affinity and synergistic effects. The fibres also enable reuse/ recycling, anaerobic digestion and marine biodegradation
  • Functional properties include high mechanical strength, liquid management, UV resistance and flushability
