Bicomponent fibers offer an innovative way to create nonwoven fabric that is essentially customized for a particular application. A bicomponent fiber is made up of two individual components distributed over the full length of a finished fiber. They can be from the same polymer or completely different polymer types.
When different polymer types, an entirely new fiber with unique physical or chemical properties can be developed. The blended fiber will have the properties of each original fiber, so specific characteristics can be selected for a particular application.
Bicomponent fiber nonwovens are growing in popularity and can be made from cotton, viscose, and polyester. Bicomponent nonwovens are ideal for products such as: Baby Diapers & Training Pants
- Incontinence Products
- Feminine Hygiene Products
- Hospital Underpads
- Wound Care and Absorbent Bandages
