Louis P. Batson has signed an agreement to become Cormatex marketing and sales agent in the United States.

Louis P. Batson is a leading supplier of capital equipment, machinery accessories, spare parts, plant supplies and technical service to the textile, nonwoven, converting, composite and recycling industries.

“We pride ourselves on only representing the best and Cormatex is definitely not an exception to that commitment,” the company statement says. “Never have we been able to offer a more comprehensive line of machinery for the production of nonwoven products.”

Forward-thinking and innovative

Established in 1938, Cormatex is an Italian woollen yarn spinning and nonwoven machinery manufacturer equipped to work closely with manufacturers to design and engineer complete needle punch, thermobonding and airlaid production lines.

The Cormatex Lap Formair with airlay technology produces nonwoven products by recycling various types of industrial waste materials. Using aerodynamic technology, it is capable of replacing traditional mechanical processes requiring a carding machine and cross lapper.

The Lap Formair features a pressure control system capable of producing a fibre batt that is perfectly blended as well as perfectly even length-wise and across the machine width.

Flexible configurations

The Lap Formair and Lap Formair H can be combined in the same line to produce nonwoven structures with horizontal and vertical fibre orientations with varying densities and blend compositions.

In addition, Cormatex roller top cards feature flexible configurations in order to process most kinds of natural or synthetic fibre for perfectly blended and even webs.

Application areas include automotive, geotextiles, filtration, thermal and acoustic insulation, protective clothing and building materials.
