With increasing oil prices, climate change, CO² regulations and building regulation codes on fire resistance, nonwovens are providing cost-effective and efficient solutions to building and construction challenges.


  • Non-perforated, nonwovens polymeric house wrap material decreases air infiltration, resulting in increased energy efficiency and maximum moisture control, while at the same time providing savings for the builder and homeowner during installation and after-sale.
  • House wrap developments such as translucency, which helps lower installation time and provides high strength, combined with no VOC (volatile organic compound) release in either production or application, satisfy ever stricter government sustainability programmes.
  • More and more demanding building standards, energy-saving schemes and to some extent changing weather patterns are driving the need for breathable and impervious underlays for pitched roofs and an improved basis for bituminous membranes, both of which can best be served with versatile nonwovens.

The advantages of using nonwovens in Industries and Construction.

  • High moisture and vapour permeability.
  • Superior tear strength.
  • Multi-directional elongation.
  • High UV stability.
  • Excellent durability.
  • High tensile energy absorbency.
  • Proven lamination process.
  • Sound insulation.
