POLYESTER SHORT CUT FIBERS

Short cut polyester fibers were developed for reinforcing paper in the early 1980s. It has been noticed that the addition of 3-5% of these fibres gives the cellulose:
increased sheet strength and tear resistance
reduced weight
increased water-loss capacity
a higher drying rate
greater productivity
reduced costs

APPLICATIONS OF POLYESTER SHORT CUT FIBERS
Polyester short cut fiber is used in :
paper non-woven fabrics
food packaging
industrial filters
disposable sanitary products
disposable products for the home
filters for the food industry (wine, beer, oil, drinks)

REQUIRED QUALITY AND SPECIFICATIONS
Polyester short cut fiber has :
Excellent wettability
High capacity for dispersing individual fibers
Ability to maintain humidity until the sheet is formed
Absence of non-dispersed fibers or fibers fused together at the time of cutting
Compatibility with adhesives used by clients
