Typar fabrics are 100% polypropylene spunbond nonwoven and offer excellent uniformity at high strength in all directions. Available in many styles and corresponding ranges, Typar fabrics are chosen for a wide variety of projects.
Typar Spunbound at a glance:
- The Typar technology utilizes a mechanical draw process that results in very consistent fiber diameters and web uniformity. Additionally, there are no binders to potentially contaminate the product.
- Their continuous filament construction means Typar fabrics are suitable for slitting and are unlikely to tangle or fray.
- The Typar technology utilizes oscillating diffusers to deposit fibers at laydown. This process allows for extreme uniformity and strength in both the machine and cross-machine directions.
- Rather than relying on point bonding, Typar fabrics are area-bonded, giving them great strength and stiffness. In addition, the fabrics have a smooth surface, making them ideal for coatings.
- Wet or dry, Typar fabrics maintain their physical properties. Permeable, they absorb less than 0.1% moisture. They are difficult to ignite as well since they tends to melt and shrink away from heat before reaching the ignition temperature. Typar is offered in 4 to 20 denier per filament; the higher denier fabrics are stronger and stiffer.
- Typar is thermally and ultrasonically sealable, and it can be slit or die-cut with a clean, tailored edge. It is available in gray, black and natural.
