F 79 S
F 79 S is a polypropylene homoplymer designed for the production of ﬁne denier staple ﬁbres for nonwoven, thermobonded fabrics.
F 79 S offers outstanding spinnability, superior thermobonding properties and excellent antigasfading properties.
Fabrics made with F 79 S are characterised by softness, taxtile-like appearance and high tear resistance.
The fabrics are particularly suited for the production of fabrics for feminine care products, diapers, incontinence pade, medical disposables, wipes and other application in the hygienic and medical sector.
Other applications include ﬁlters and fabrics for the automotive, clothing and furniture industry.
in comparison with standard polypropylene types for thermobonding applications, F 79 S offers some distinct advantages.
- The processability with the long-spinning technology is outstanding, resulting in high and uniform ﬁbre quality and less down-time.
- F 79 S gives a broad thermal bonding window, wich facilitates start-up and adjustments of the plant.
- F 79 S show a 20 to 30 % increase in thermal bonding ability. This makes it possible to produce fabrics with a hugher tear strength or with a lower weight per m2 for the same strength.
