New fiber developed for needlepunched applications. The fiber has the following features:
• High performance. The fiber’s strength level, spin finish type and content will be adjusted to each specific application.
It also guarantees the customer a close cooperation with all parts of the FiberVisions competence functions. In addition, the fiber is supported by strong R&D experience.
• A high, uniform quality, supported by the concept of longspinning fiber manufacturing.
• Our longspinning fibers have a broad temperature window, which makes a thermal stabilization of the needlefelt product very easy and convenient.
The NForz fiber is not a fiber with the standard spectrum of properties: needlepunching fibers with high fiber strength and low elongation.
The FiberVisions® NForz is a fiber with medium to high fiber tenacity combined with higher-than-normal elongation.
The process advantage for the customer is that the FiberVisions long spin fibers do not easily break during needling.
A high elongation fiber provides for increased toughness and the customer can achieve stronger nonwovens without sacrificing nonwovens elongation.
