Freudenberg Performance Materials (Freudenberg) will present its sustainable Evolon product range for reusable technical packaging for highly-sensitive parts at Fachpack 2022 in Nuremberg, Germany from September 27-29. The microfilament textiles offer improved surface protection for moulded plastic parts, painted parts, and so-called class A parts, thus providing customers with significant savings potential. The Freudenberg team will be welcoming visitors to Stand 7A-732 in Hall 7A at the trade fair. 

By using Evolon reusable packaging to transport highly-sensitive parts, customers can increase their efficiency and save resources. Thanks to the sophisticated protective function of the microfilament textiles, fewer parts are damaged and the reject rate is reduced. In addition, Evolon is extremely durable, the fabrics contain a high percentage of recycled PET and are manufactured in a certified sustainable process.  

Evolon RE is the most sustainable product in the portfolio. It contains the highest percentage of recycled PET and has a smaller carbon footprint. The new Ultra Force range from Evolon offers extremely high mechanical strength and eliminates the need for PVC in the transportation and protection of large, heavy parts. Freudenberg has developed the ESD range (electro-static discharge range) for the packaging of sensitive electronic components: it offers permanent electro-static discharging and its surface resistivity can be customised.  

Evolon microfilament textiles are the optimal choice of reusable packaging for sensitive parts. The ultrasoft and smooth surface of Evolon protects highly-sensitive surfaces and avoids micro-scratches or texture transfer. The microfilament textiles are also extremely strong and can be used to pack and transport very heavy parts without damage. They are breathable, permeable to solvent vapours and feature UV-filtering properties that are invaluable for outdoor storage. 

The Evolon microfilament textiles from Freudenberg are manufactured from up to 85 per cent recycled materials. Their sustainability benefits extend throughout their lifecycle. Evolon microfilament textiles have a small carbon footprint: the textiles are made from a high percentage of post-consumer PET bottles, the manufacturing process uses low-CO2 energy, the textiles are lightweight and can be reused throughout entire production programmes, e.g. of a car model. 

Evolon meets the most stringent requirements in terms of sustainability and product safety. Freudenberg manufactures the microfilament textiles at its Colmar, France, facility that has been awarded the STeP by OEKO-TEX label and complies with the DETOX TO ZERO by OEKO-TEX criteria.
