Air laying is a nonwoven web-forming process that disperses fibers into a fast moving air stream and condenses them onto a moving screen by means of pressure or vacuum (Source: INDA).

SAF™ is routinely processed on all commercial air-laid production equipment. SAF™ short staple grades (6 mm) are typically blended with wood pulp and thermal bondable fibre. Airlaid webs within excess of 80% SAF™ content can be achieved at fabric weights of approximately 20-1,000gsm. A wide range of lamination options are available for SAFTM based airlaids.

  1. Superabsorbent fabrics SAF airlaid nonwoven fabrics 2644

    This is an airlaid fabric, with a high SAF content core (fluff pulp and Bi-Co fibre make up the remaining core) a nonwoven bottom layer and a BiCo top layer.  This produces a highly absorbent inner core, with a low dusting/shedding outer layer. The outer layers give a smooth, soft feel. The outer BiCo layer also allows for thermal bonding of additional layers to the fabric.
