Batson, Cormatex Together Form Powerful Nonwovens Team

GREENVILLE, S.C. — June 17, 2014 —  Louis P. Batson Company is pleased to announce our recent agreement with Cormatex (Prato, Italy) to be their marketing and sales agent in the United States.

We pride ourselves on only representing the best and Cormatex is definitely not an exception to that commitment. Never have we been able to offer a more comprehensive line of machinery for the production of nonwoven products.

Established in 1938, Cormatex is a forward-thinking, innovative company equipped to work closely with manufacturers to design and engineer complete needle punch, thermobonding and airlaid production lines.

Of special note is the Cormatex Lap Formair with airlay technology that produces nonwoven products by recycling various types of industrial waste materials. Using aerodynamic technology, it is capable of replacing traditional mechanical processes requiring a carding machine and cross lapper. The Lap Formair features a pressure control system capable of producing a fiber batt that is perfectly blended as well as perfectly even length-wise and across the machine width.

The Lap Formair and Lap Formair H can be combined in the same line to produce nonwoven structures with horizontal and vertical fiber orientations with varying densities and blend compositions.

In addition, Cormatex roller top cards feature flexible configurations in order to process most kinds of natural or synthetic fiber (both raw or regenerated) for perfectly blended and even webs.

And, their crosslappers have patented PROFILE systems for expert control of fiber laps at production speeds of 150 meters/minute and widths up to 15 meters.

Application areas include automotive, geotextiles, filtration, thermal and acoustic insulation, protective clothing and building materials.
