Reifenhäuser Reicofil will exhibit its extensive portfolio of nonwovens lines for hygiene, medical and industrial applications at the Index in Geneva/Switzerland from October 19-22, 2021. Thereby, Reicofil lines from Reifenhäuser GmbH & Co. KG, Troisdorf/Germany, offer the option to produce sustainable nonwovens from bio-based raw materials or recycled material. This provides the opportunity to take the global shift toward sustainability as a chance to offer sought-after products. Manufacturers that use Reicofil lines convert up to 90% 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 meets maximum hygiene requirements at the same time.
Against the backdrop of the still ongoing Corona pandemic, high quality medical protective clothing and facemasks are essential to ensure infection control. The recently introduced 5th generation of the Reicofil process, Reicofil 5, ensures high quality and reliable production of these nonwovens.
Additionally, the highly specialized component manufacturer of the Reifenhäuser Group for spunbond, meltblown and composite lines Reifenhäuser Enka Tecnica will present its portfolio of spinnerets, cassettes, and complete meltblown spinning beams that is 100% non-proprietary compatible with all globally installed lines.
