Oerlikon Neumag has progressive technologies both for the production of fibers for geotextile carded nonwovens and for the manufacture of geotextile spunbonds.

The quality of nonwovens is determined by the stabilization, the application and the fiber quality. As a proven expert in spinning, Oerlikon Neumag beneficially deploys its many years of expertise here both for its spunbond and staple fiber technology. Hence, Oerlikon Neumag is able to offer solutions for processes and systems for manufacturing high-end spunbonds and fibers for carded nonwovens.

Since 2002, nonwovens have experienced a sharp rise, with 6 percent annual growth with regards to its use in geotextiles.

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Report Card for America’s Infrastructure gave a grade of D to America’s Roads. “Over 42% of Americas roads are congested costing the economy an estimated $101 billion in wasted time and fuel annually.” It is estimated that over $170 billion needs to be spent annually just to maintain America’s roads and bridges (ASCE Infrastructure Report Card). The 2015 Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2015 provides only $46 billion per year. These kinds of budget deficits require innovative solutions to provide more efficient and sustainable road system solutions.
