Thermofelt

Nonwoven fabric for industrial uses

Main characteristics:
Edilfloor’s Thermofelt® range is made by polyester and polypropylene fabrics, available in several weights, sizes and colors: from beige to black, from cognac to grey, from brown to green and a lot more. The range of weights goes from 60 to 400 g/m2. Many different roll sizes are available: mother rolls or standard length rolls, narrow widths or larger rolls up to 5 m. Thermofelt® fabrics are available in the versions thermobonded on one side (T1) or both sides (T2). T1 attaches very strongly to Hook & Loop strips with high abrasion resistance and T2 shows very high strength and tear resistance with low deformation. Edilfloor’s Thermofelt® fabrics are made by 100% synthetic fibers, resistant to microorganisms and molds, perfectly hygienic and not toxic, permeable to liquids and gas, they do not pollute the environment and they are 100% recyclable. During the production process, no glues or chemical binders are used: this is one of the reason why Edilfloor’s nonwovens are eco-friendly.

Main advantages:
Thanks to its low deformability, Thermofelt® can be easily sewn, cut, bonded, coated, glued, ultrasonically welded, printed, embossed, laminated, clamped, washed. Main applications::
• Sewing and junction reinforcement
• Cushion reverse fabric
• Pull strips
• Inside lining and dust cover

Washing and cleaning PP fabrics
PP fibres, owing to their chemical (paraffinic) composition, do not absorb and do not react with the various staining agents: a mechanical removal of staining agents entrapped by capillarity in the fibre is the most efficient cleaning methods. 100% PP fabrics dry very rapidly because of the low moisture absorption of the fibre. As to the stability to the different types of washing processes, the following remarks apply:
• Laundering: when necessary PP items can be washed at temperature up to 100°C;
• Dry cleaning: owing to the sensitivity of PP to hot chlorinated solvents, it is recommended not to exceed 50°C during cleaning and 40°C during drying.
