Beaulieu Fibres International gets to the heart of Asia’s growth segment needs at ANEX 2018 (6/5/18)
Beaulieu Fibres International, the leading European polyolefin fibre supplier, marks its Asia Nonwovens
Exhibition and Conference (ANEX) debut with unique products and capabilities to support innovation at
a local level within the automotive and hygiene segments.
Beaulieu Fibres International demonstrates its commitment to the global market growth for automotive
composites and technical textiles, as interest increases in adopting lightweight materials to reduce
vehicle weight and fuel efficiency.
The company will present UltraLink bonding fibres that improve the mechanical, thermal and functional
properties of the final part, allowing customers to meet OEM specific standards in a more sustainable
way. They are available in both MONO and BICO technology – a first for the composites industry.
Jefrem Jennard, Global Sales Director – Industrial Fibres, comments: “Beaulieu Fibres International
developed UltraLink fibres over the past two years to provide an answer to the automotive industry’s
continuous strive for lower weight, lower emission, lower cost and better properties. They are being
introduced in new global automotive programmes with SOP 2019-2021. We are delighted to introduce
them to the Asian market at ANEX.”
At ANEX 2018, Beaulieu Fibres International also presents its platform of unique Meralux fibres offering
significant improvements to the dryness of nonwoven for hygiene and medical applications. The BICO
fibre has a special cross section, which enables it to provide bulk, opacity and enhanced fluid
management compared to standard round fibres to nonwoven constructions. As a result, a dry feeling
is achieved for the final nonwoven.
Petra Bohle-Stricker, Global Sales Director – Hygiene Fibres, comments: “As Asia Pacific heads
towards becoming the largest regional tissue and hygiene market by the end of 2025, nonwovens
producers can already take advantage of the benefits of Meralux to launch new and innovative
products that will grab the attention of global and local manufacturers. Visitors to our ANEX booth can
experience Meralux fibres first-hand in nonwoven samples.”
Since Meralux was first launched in April 2017, the portfolio has expanded to include Meralux T and
Meralux Soft. Beaulieu Fibres International is currently expanding its production programme with
polyester-core (PET) BICO. In addition a pilot line for new developments is under construction. Both
are expected to come on stream in 2018.
