The SMMS line has an installed capacity of 8500 tons per annum, thus increasing the overall spun melt fabric capacity to 12000 tons per annum. The fabric produced at this facility will meet various international quality standards especially the high demands of the new European standards, EN 13795.The barrier properties such as hydrohead and air permeability of the fabric will surpass the current industry standards. This has been possible due to path breaking melt blown technology that has been incorporated into the new plant.
