NatureWorks Unveils Ingeo™ Bioresins For Meltblowns

NatureWorks LLC, Minnetonka, Minn., maker of Ingeo™ biopolymers derived from plant sugars, now offers two Ingeo bioresin grades for use in meltblown nonwovens applications including filters and wipes. A comprehensive range of Ingeo fabrics now can be produced using all primary nonwoven fabric-forming processes, the company reports.

"An Ingeo meltblown nonwoven offers an estimated 30 to 50 percent cost savings over conventional fiber-based nonwoven roll goods and a significant advantage in price stability compared to petroleum-based products," said Doug Brown, president of Greenville, Wis.-based meltblown machinery manufacturer Biax-FiberFilm Corp. He added that Ingeo meltblown fiber can be mixed with wood pulp or viscose to provide significantly increased absorption properties for applications such as performance wipes.
