  • produced to meet customers exact specifications
  • in-line measurement and control of air permeability
  • available electrostatically charged to enhance filtration efficiency for fine dusts
  • can be laminated in-line with a variety of substrates to form 2 or 3 layer composites
  • controlled thickness via an ‘in-line’ calibration unit
  • thermal flat calendering available
  • bespoke melt additives available for enhanced fabric properties or visual enhancements

Polymers
