Nonwovens & Fiber Imerys engineered calcium carbonates are excellent solutions for enhancing the performance of nonwovens and fiber
Imerys calcium carbonates provide increased softness, opacity, strength, and filtration efficiency to polymer based nonwovens and fiber used for the production of medical products such as surgical gowns and masks, geo-textiles and filters.
Our calcium carbonate FiberLink® product is the latest development in nonwoven and mineral technology and has been specifically engineered to substantially reduce the amount of resin used in nonwoven production.
- Lower bonding temperatures
- Better opacity and delusterization
- Increased softness
- Better filtration performance
- High air permeability
- Lower costs
- Better printability
- Increased strength
- Easier dust removal and good water repellency
- Improved filtration performance
FiberLink® is ideal for meltblown, spunbound and spunlace textiles.
We offer a full range of custom formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
