Bicomponent fibers from ES FIBERVISIONS TM are very advanced multifunctional fibers. Manufactured from two different polymers, customers have the opportunity of using the polymers for different purposes.
The sheath material (typically poly-ethylene) has an excellent softness but is also characterized by having a low bonding temperature and can thus be used as binder material in fiber blends or to other kinds of materials.
The core material (polypropylene or polyester) normally is used to ensure the integrity of the product. This core is not melted during bonding and forms a three-dimensional network in the product, giving the nonwoven product strength.
Generally speaking, ES FIBERVISIONS TM has a vast array of opportunities when designing a unique and tailor-made fiber to a customer.
The variations are countless, and therefore even “impossible requirements” can often be fulfilled.
Bicomponent fibers normally consist of two different polymers that interact with each other.
