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.
This is an airlaid fabric, with a SAFTM, fluff pulp and Bi-Co fibre core, an SPP top and PE film bottom laminate. This gives a low shed / easy release surface, with a waterproof backing layer.
