Microfiber Spunbound Technology, 1996 Nonwovens Conference Proceedings

Sanjiv R. Malkan

Although the microfiber technology has existed for a long time, the concept of microfiber to spunbonding systems has been applied only recently. Several nonwoven fabric and equipment manufacturing companies undertook the development of microfiber spunbonding technology during the late 1980’s in Europe, North America, and Japan. So far, none of the technologies has shown a market promise except a press by Kobe-Kodoshi from Japan. This paper describes the state of microfiber spunbonding technology and also the advantages and disadvantages of using microfiber in spunbond nonwovens.
