Lenzing natureLenzing’s Nonwovens Business Unit is to exhibit for the first time at the forthcoming Filtration event, which will take place in Chicago from 17-19 November 2009.

 “We have experienced increasing interest in Lenzing Viscose and Tencel fibres for filtration applications. The Filtration show provides an ideal platform for us to network with existing customers and establish new relationships” said Chris Potter, Business Manager Technical Products.

Lenzing’s Nonwovens business reinforces the demands of the filtration industry by focusing on innovation in this area, the company says. “Continuous product development enables us to tailor the properties of our fibres. In that way optimized performance satisfies the individual requirements of our customers and their customers,” adds Potter.

Lenzing says that being food grade, its Lenzing Viscose is the established benchmark with a long history of use in food and beverage filtration.

The company says that Tencel offers a new dimension in filtration utilizing the fibre’s propensity to fibrillate. According to Lenzing, the circular shaped microfibers deliver high efficiency filtration without impairing operating performance. The end uses are numerous including cigarette filter tips, automotive fuel and oil filters as well as industrial air and liquid process filters, the company says.
