Reifenhauser Reicofil, a German specialist and leading global manufacturer of complete spunbond, meltblown, and composite lines, has announced that the company will exhibit sustainably produced nonwovens for various applications at the Anex/Since 2021 exhibition in Shanghai from July 22-24, 2021, at Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center.
“In applications in the hygiene, medical and industrial sectors, we regularly set benchmarks for productivity and end-product quality. In addition, we offer our customers the option to produce sustainable nonwovens from bio-based raw materials or recycled material. We support our customers in leveraging the opportunities offered by the global shift to sustainability – or in other words: Next Level Nonwovens,” Markus Muller, sales director at Reifenhauser Reicofil, said in a press release.
The company said in the statement that, producers who use Reicofil lines convert up to 90 per cent PET flakes from post-consumer waste into high-strength nonwovens for use in industrial applications.
“In the hygiene sector, diapers made from bio-based raw materials also represent an ecological alternative that can reduce the use of fossil raw materials. Topsheet material made of voluminous, soft, and industrially compostable high-loft nonwovens meet maximum hygiene requirements,” the German firm said.
“Not only that, Reicofil offers solutions for the production of nonwovens for medical protective clothing. Reicofil Meltblown nonwovens for protective face masks provide reliable safety and help to combat the Covid pandemic worldwide. The quality of the nonwovens used must have 100 per cent reliability. Reicofil technology therefore guarantees maximum safety, with filtration efficiencies of up to 99 per cent (N99 / FFP3 standard), lowest quality fluctuations and high-reliability machine technology for maximum line availability,” the statement further added.
Since only a reduced number of Reifenhauser Reicofil experts can attend the exhibition in Shanghai due to ongoing travel restrictions to China, online consulting calls will also be offered at the booth, according to the company. The visitors can find Reifenhauser Reicofil at hall 1, booth 1R01 – 1R02.
