Nonwovens / Technical Textiles

Oerlikon Neumag, Elmarco Partner For Nonwovens

Germany-based Oerlikon Neumag, the nonwovens business unit of Oerlikon Textile GmbH & Co. KG, and Elmarco S.r.o., a nanofiber technologies manufacturer based in the Czech Republic, have announced they will cooperate to develop solutions for the production of sound-absorbent nonwoven materials such as Elmarco’s Nanospider AcousticWeb™, as well as other technological solutions for nanofiber applications.

Elmarco was founded in 2000 and is the first company to supply an industrial electro-spinning production line for nanofibers. Elmarco’s Nanospider technology enables the manufacture of nonwovens made of fibers 200 to 500 nanometers in diameter, and suitable for use in such industries as filtration, automotive, building and healthcare, among others. The Nanospider AcousticWebis a unique material that features sound-absorption characteristics.

“As a company that always realizes a strong commitment for new technologies, we see a big potential in the future cooperation with Elmarco in the field of ultralightweight nonwoven applications,” said Dr. Stefan Schlichter, head of Oerlikon Neumag’s carding division. “Together with Elmarco, we will explore the potential of the new nanoweb technology on the nonwovens world market.”
