High-Loft Nonwovens

polymers_high_loft_nonwovens.png

Application Description

These low density, high thickness materials are widely used in applications that require cushioning or breathability. For example, high-loft nonwovens can be found in padding for kids and infant products like bumper pads and crib cushions. Other areas are outdoor furniture cushions, quilting and bedding as well as in appliances that require acoustic properties.

High-loft nonwovens are typically formed by spray bonding. MCP offers multiple chemistries for high-loft nonwovens that provide desired characteristics such as water resistance and resiliency.
