The automotive industry is continually working on improving the interior and exterior designs of their vehicles, looking for lighter and more efficient components for noise reduction, where nonwovens are used. Qualities such as high tensile strength, excellent strain, lightness or stability against chemicals, mites and other substances, have led the nonwoven fabric to a product which gives guarantees in the automotive sector.
TST CHEM is used as a back and intermediate roof’s coating. With a fire retardant finish it would be applied to cover internal parts of the hood.
Inside the car’s cabin it is usual to place reinforcements of TST BOND in different places: below the carpets, at the seat backs, in the trunk’s trays or even in the inside part of the glove compartment.
In the engine compartment we find oil filters manufactured with spunbond, with the function of preventing the passage of particles to the fluids flowing through the interior of the engine, so they extend the life of the car. We also find air filters made of nonwoven. They are in charge of retaining the particles that may contain the air that the engine sucks and it ensures a high quality of the air that we breathe inside the vehicle. TST BOND allows a fireproofing treatment.
TST BOND is made for seat covers, steering wheels and floor mats to protect from dust, dirt and possible stains caused before the completion of the vehicle, resulting from its transport, or for vehicles remaining in exhibitions or garages. Likewise, the nonwoven fabric is made for vehicle covers, wheel covers and packaging accessories for a clean and safe transport and storage.
A good way to work with the environment is to use waste bags for car levers, made of 100% polypropylene spunbond, and designed to be reused, thanks to the durability this nonwoven fabric offers. The paper is an advertising object that laundries, garages, service stations and car brands distribute to promote their brand or company, as the TST BOND can be embroidered, printed or screen printed.
Furniture and matress:
Properties such as hydrophobia and abrasion, tearing and wear resistance, easy to weld, sew and stick make TST BOND a product widely used in the furniture, upholstery and matress industries.
TST BOND is used as a coating in both the base and back of armchairs and sofas, and at the back side of cushions which form the sofa itself. Some of the most remarkable properties of the nonwoven for this application are its great fireproof and anti-mites properties.
Its great diversity of colours and weights makes easier the election of the nonwoven during the design phase.
Dust covers and reinforcement
The bottom side of armcharis and sofas is sealed with TST BOND nonwoven to avoid dust deposits in the inner side. Its great resistence to tear and its low cost made it the best option in front of other solutions with similar characteristics.
TST BOND is also used as a reinforcement in side skirts and as a pull stripe.
Wrapped or pocket springs mattresses use TST BOND for each of their springs to avoid friction between them, cancelling the noise they can produce and extending its useful life.
TST BOND is used as an inner separation layer in mattresses or at the top side as a coating. Thus, it is also used in other elements such as border linings, side skirts cloth, quilted reinforcement, matress false cover or inner skirting-board.
High tensile strenght, hydrophobia and low cost, among other properties, make the TST BOND a perfect option to confectionate the cushion’s lining. Its hydrophobic condition prevents the absorption of body’s sweat or liquids spills avoiding dirt inside of the cushion and avoiding odours this can cause.
TST BOND resistant feactures made it suitable as a padding base.
Shoes and leather products:
The strong competition present both at the shoe sector and leather products sectors lead into a research of materials with a reasonable cost which also bring quality to the product. Here is where we can use TST BOND due to its excellent properties.
TST BOND is used as interior lining in bags, suitcases, wallets, diaries and shoes. Nonwoven texture provides an elegant look to the lining which together with the high tear, tensile and wear resistance makes this product a very useful material.
TST BOND is used as a reinforcement in shoes due to its high tensile resistance. Air permeability present in the nonwoven materials allow feet transpiration avoiding sweating.
TST BOND is also used in the confection of packing/wrapping bags for shoes and bags, protecting them from scratches and shocks and giving them a cared and elegant image.
Confección de prendas
El tejido sin tejer TST BOND es adecuado para la confección de todo tipo de prendas, como petos identificativos para los niños, bolsas de merienda, bolsas de zapatos, baberos, delantales, caretas, disfraces….
Las cualidades técnicas del tejido no tejido admiten que éste sea lavado unas dos o tres veces, por lo que su reutilización es posible.
There are many reasons why nonwovens are used in the confection of clothes and security complements: they are hypoallergenic, hydrophobic, low level of flammability, resistant to: tear, abrassion, acids, bases, organic solvents and bacteria
TST BOND TST LAMINADO TST SMS
Sotfness for workers comfort and no fuzzing are other important features of TST SMS and TST BOND to be the most used in rotection clothes.
If security requirements are very strict we will use TST BOND which presents more permeability to air, it decreases the protection level but it makes a more comfortable item.
When protection clothes are going to be used in highly contaminated environments, we must pay attention to the seams on the TST SMS and we must avoid them to be sewed since the inner side of the garment could suck the contaminated particles.
TST SMS is the best solution against higlhy contaminating particles or substances as it is asbestos. Even TST SMS is anti-static itself, we can give it an additional anti-static treatment to avoid the adhesion of fibers or particles which are detrimental to health.
