Total’s product range is here to help you build Stronger, Lighter and Greener materials
PP nonwovens have become essential elements in the durable construction of buildings and infrastructure projects such as filtration layers under roads and breathable under-roof membranes. Total’s PPH allows to increase both tenacity and residual elongation of staple fibers for an unrivalled toughness through an optimised degree of crystallinity and molecular design. As a consequence the high energy absorption potential of these fibers enables downgauging of nonwoven fabrics by at least 10%, thus allowing a more responsible use of fossil resources and significantly reducing the environmental footprint.
Total’s metallocene polypropylenes ‘Lumicene® MR 2001 & MR 2002’ are designed for spunbond nonwovens. They will enable you to obtain improved mechanical properties coupled with an increase of throughput, thus providing a step change in spunbond nonwoven manufacturing. A downgauging potential of up to 17% is achieved compared to market reference PP homopolymers.
