MOGUL DURELL ADDS CROSS-LAPPED TECHNİCAL SPUNLACE CAPACITY TO ITS OFFERINGS

Mogul has increased its non-woven spunlace production by adding a cross-lapped spunlace line at its plant in Luleburgaz near Istanbul, Turkey.   The cross-lapped product, introduced under the brand name Durell®, supplements MOGUL’s existing production of Aqualace® parallel-laid spunlace.  The new cross-lapped line brings high performance products into Mogul’s range of spunlace products.

Cross-lapped spunlace technology differs from parallel laid spunlace in that the cross-lapper forms a web by laying down the carded fiber at a 90o angle to the line’s direction.  In a parallel-laid process the carded fiber is laid down in parallel to the line’s direction.  Through this cross-lapping of the web the resultant spunlace achieves similar tensile strength in both machine direction (MD) and cross direction (CD).

With MD:CD ratios from 0.8 to 1.1 Durell finds use whenever multi-direction fabric strength is needed.

Examples of Durell applications include:

Automotive (headliners, pillars)                   Wipes (Restaurant & Institutional)              Wet Wipes
Building Materials                                            Medical                                                            Artificial Leather
Filtration                                                             Personal Care                                                Lamination
Home Textiles                                                   Low Pressure Injection                                 Promotional Goods
Epilation Pads                                                   Printing Media                                                Disposable Linens

Generally spunlace is a growing technology in the nonwovens field, being the preferred fabric for wipes, and is also growing in technical and durable applications.   As a further value adding feature, Mogul’s Durell cross-lapped spunlace line includes in-line dyeing and chemical impregnation to provide capability to produce dye colored or chemically impregnated (water repellent, fire retardant, acrylic binder, etc.) fabrics.
