Natural fibers used in the manufacturing of technical textiles and nonwovens address the needs of our times. Environmental awareness is growing manifold within various sectors and the advantages of the natural fibers characteristics are becoming more prominent. Depending on the end use, producers of technical textiles and nonwovens have started to care about biodegradable or recyclable materials to provide their customers with what they require.
Norafin has ventured into flax fiber processing and introduced the material into its hydroentangling process. Thanks to the naturally given UV resistance of the flax fibers, their positive eco-balance as well as their natural apsect, flax fibers can be used in the home furnishing market, as for example as window shades. Together with its partners Norafin processed the flax fibers on their lines and created a novelty material suitable for interior design purposes and other technical options.
The newly created window shades based on nonwovens have lately been installed in various business estabilshments within the private sector, but also with administrative authorities in France. The users' reactions were very positive. Due to a very good cooling effect of the material, nice aesthetics, good luminosity and a very interesting acoustic effect - the material absorbs noises very well - the product was very much appreciated.
