Along with many diverse finishing treatments, VATEKS uses three types of web bonding technologies in its nonwoven production. These are:

Chemical Bonding (Cross-laid, Parallel, Random): refers to the application of a liquid based bonding agent to the web. Three groups of materials are commonly used as binders-acrylate polymers and copolymers, styrene-butadiene copolymers and vinyl-acetate ethylene copolymers. The binder can be applied uniformly by impregnating, coating or spraying or intermittently, as in print bonding.

Thermobonding: refers to the use of thermoplastic properties of certain synthetic fibers to form bonds under controlled heating. Usually a low melt fiber or bicomponent fiber is introduced at the web formation stage to perform the binding function later in the process. Among several thermal-bonding systems, Vateks is using the calendaring system, where heat and high pressure applied through rollers to weld the fiber webs together at speed.

Needlepunching (Mechanical Bonding): refers to the strengthening of the web by inter-fiber friction as a result of the physical entanglement of the fibers. Among the two types of mechanical bonding, Vateks is using needle punching system, where specially designed needles are pushed and pulled through the web to entangle the fibers.

In order to meet the further demands of our valued customers, a range of Technologies which can add diverse properties are at their services. These are: calendaring, hot melt lamination, coating and printing.
