Expert Services for the Nonwoven and Fibre Industries

We have been developing nonwovens and fibres for nonwovens since 1966 and have contributed to the thirty-fold growth of the nonwovens industry, the emergence of spunlaid and spunlaced nonwovens technology, and the development of numerous hygienic disposables.
Since March 1998 we have provided new product and new market development services, specialising in the confidential development of nonwoven prototypes, technological gate-keeping, and due-diligence in the fields of disposable nonwovens, wound care, and the fibres used to manufacture such products. We have particular expertise in the bio-based, sustainable, renewable and biodegradable fibres including viscose rayon and Tencel and have supported patent litigation with expert witness evidence in court.

Our unique 40 year nonwovens industry archive is regularly updated through attendance of international nonwoven conferences each year. Summaries of the papers given at these conferences are now being added to the Conference Reports Tag, which now contains the reports from 1998 onwards.
