fibers are the most efficient way to impart strength to a nonwoven
fabric. Binder fibers are bicomponent fibers with a sheath of one polymer and a core
of another polymer. The binder fibers' sheath melts at a relatively
low temperature, and the core melts at a higher temperature.
Nonwoven fabrics made with binder
fibers can be bonded together simply by heating the fabric to melt the
sheath but not the core of the binder fibers. Upon cooling, the
molten sheath freezes, gluing the other fibers together and producing a
strong fabric. Fiber
Innovation Technology specializes in making bonding fibers with a wide variety of melting temperatures, and other important
performance features. We also make other specialty fibers and filaments.
