The Lenzing Group filed a first wave of patent applications for its new Lenzing Web Technology with the World Intellectual Property Organization. The 25 applications focus on product, process and application inventions and are part of the company’s intellectual property protection strategy.

The Lenzing Web Technology is a nonwoven web formation process that starts with botanic wood pulp and produces a nonwoven fabric made of 100% continuous lyocell filament. The technology offers a self-bonding mechanism where filaments bond into a fabric during the laydown process.

This self-bonding mechanism allows for a much wider variety of basis weight, surface textures, drapeability and dimensional stability than other nonwoven technologies, according to the manufacturer.

“Lenzing’s corporate strategy sCore TEN is very focused on driving growth via sustainability focused innovation. The new Lenzing Web Technology is one of the most exciting R&D projects. The 25 patent applications related to this new technology underline our commitment to the nonwoven industry,” said Stefan Doboczky, CEO of the Lenzing Group.

“We will continue to support our partners in their business and help consumers with sustainable innovative solutions for their everyday needs.”
