TFP’s third nonwoven manufacturing line will reportedly double production capacity.

Technical Fibre Products Ltd (TFP) has opened a third nonwoven manufacturing line, doubling production capacity.

‘TFP’s new production line delivers a stepwise increase in capacity for the business,’ reported Martin Thompson, MD of TFP. ‘It is a necessary step to meet rapidly increasing demand and facilitate delivery of the company’s successful growth strategy.’

The line is based on the company’s proprietary wet-laid technology with increased production width to over two meters, enabling TFP to access new markets.

Applications for the nonwovens include the ESA satellite, GAIA, and the latest generation of commercial and defence aircraft.
