Beaulieu Engineered Fibres announces new pilot line for joint R&D projects
Spearheading Beaulieu Engineered Product’s news at ITMA 2019, is the announcement of new, fully operational pilot line supporting R&D projects for industrial and hygiene applications.
It will also support the development of innovative fibres for new markets and applications. Beaulieu Fibres International’s (BFI) pilot line answers increasing customer demand for co-developments. According to the company, it is extremely flexible and can replicate any type of staple fibre spinning technology, using different type of polymers and additives, and different type of cross sections.
Furthermore, the company intends to increase capacity to boost cost-efficient, strong Geotextiles: new high tenacity staple fibres capacity will be available from the end of 2019 at BFI’s Italian plant. The producers’s high tenacity fibres HT8 offer unique high tensile strength without compromising on elongation. The fibres provide opportunities to reduce geotextile system cost by maximizing machine efficiency and ensure desired performance at reduced weight - up to 15% compared with standard geotextile fibres.
Karena Cancilleri, Engineered Products, Beaulieu International Group, comments: “Textiles have expanded well beyond apparel. At ITMA 2019, we look forward to sharing pioneering solutions and practical co-development support to enable diverse industries to take a more innovative and sustainable direction in their future applications.”
