Sandler AG, a leading German nonwovens producer, will present at this year’s Techtextil, which is to be held from 9-12 May in Frankfurt, at its garden of nonwoven novelties. A veritable bouquet of high-tech materials for acoustic insulation in the home and the office, for transportation, and for filtration will be on display at the home of innovative nonwovens.

fibercomfort insulation materials are applied in the roof and in walls, providing for rooms at a pleasant temperature and at the same time helping to conserve energy. In partition walls sound-insulating nonwovens create optimum conversational acoustics. These textile solutions also provide for a quieter every-day work life in office partitions, additionally functioning as a design feature for individual room design, the company reports.

According to the manufacturer, the product range offers the right acoustic nonwoven for every application: soft and voluminous or self-supporting and compact; with an open-pore surface of especially smoothed; white, black or a marble-like shade in colour – these textiles can be adapted to customer requirements.

Filter media

Filter media provide clean air to breath – for optimum indoor air quality at home, as well as in industrial buildings. Sandler’s latest development for this application are enAIRsave pocket filter media, which are said to provide excellent filtration performance, as well as put a premium on energy conservation.

Sound insulation

On the go, Sandler nonwovens are designed to ensure a comfortable drive, particularly on long trips. Efficient acoustical absorbers dampen engine and driving noise, providing for a pleasant noise level. New sawasorb advanced nonwovens achieve this level of sound insulation at low product thickness, the company reports. They are, therefore, ideal for narrow installation spaces and – using fewer raw material – are said to offer a more sustainable product solution.

Lightweight sawasorb exterior shadow absorber nonwovens are not only acoustically efficient at low product thickness, they also feature hydro- and oleophobic properties, particularly for exterior applications in wheel house liners or underride guards.

Seat upholstery

Finally, sawaloom nonwovens for seat upholstery in vehicles aim to provide the cosy-factor. Being air-permeable and moisture resistant, these materials contribute to an optimum micro-climate of the seat. The latest development in this product line features a particularly soft, bulky and foam-like quality. Quilted with leather, this nonwoven produces an especially pronounced 3D-quilt-look, the company reports.
