We were presented with a polypropylene fibre sample for a food-based product, which needed to meet very specific technical requirements.
This included a thorough review of application weight, thickness, surface finish, density and absorbency in order to deliver a food-approved fabric that would not shred and contaminate the product.
Our innovations team identified the necessary fibres to exceed the client’s requirements. We carried out a small trial followed by a scaled-up production and full commercialisation.
As trials developed, valuable data was made available involving processing, running speeds, coating, and end-product performance. This empowered us to enhance the client’s product even further, which delighted stakeholders across the supply chain.
