Following their merger, Freudenberg Performance Materials, Low & Bonar, Mehler Texnologies and Filc will be presenting innovative solutions at a joint stand for the first time at this year’s Techtextil exhibition from June 21-24  in Frankfurt (Hall 12.1, stand C51).

The focus is on sustainability and among highlights are Evolon RE, a microfilament textile for a wide variety of applications and markets, Filflex, a sustainable padding material for car seat covers, and the Polymar 8556 Eco CF truck tarpaulin.

Evolon RE is a more sustainable version of the company’s high-performance microfilament nonwoven. It is manufactured from an average of 70% recycled polyester which the company makes by recycling post-consumer PET bottles in-house and available for various applications including technical packaging in weights currently ranging from 80-300gsm.

For high-tech wiping, lightweight Evolon RE is now available starting from a weight of 30gsm.

Mehler’s Polymar 8556 Eco CF tarpaulin material provides both protection of the cargo and advertising for the transport company via graphics. The material has a 25% share of recycled raw materials in its coating mass and is made with 100% recycled polyester yarns.

Filflex is a soft and flexible padding layer made from nonwovens for automotive and furniture seat covers. It prevents leather from creasing and improves the dimensional stability of seat covers. Its 100% PET composition makes it easy to recycle and provides customers with easier handling during sewing and the seat covering process.
