New airlay technology to be exhibited at Index17

Airlaying technology Lap Formair can manufacture nonwovens using natural fibers or even post-industrial and post-consumer waste materials. Nonwovens machinery manufacturer Cormatex will exhibit its new airlaying technology at Index 17 to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, in April.

The system is available in two versions. Lap Formair V creates vertical orientation of the fibers for improved resiliency, thermal and acoustic insulation properties, whilst Lap Formair H creates a horizontal stratification of the fibers, benefiting material mechanical properties and tensile strength.

The nonwoven fabrics produced by Lap Formair can be applied to a variety of sectors the company notes, including building construction, automotive, furniture, composites materials and geotextiles, thanks to their thermal and acoustic insulative properties and mechanical resistance.

Processed materials can include basalt fibers, glass, carbon, waste materials such as leather, garment and mattress waste, waste from tyre recycling and recycled paper and cardboard.

An airlay pilot line is available at Cormatex premises for research and development projects with customers.
