ANDRITZ to supply wetlaid line for glass fibre mats to Saint-Gobain
The ANDRITZ neXline wetlaid line for glass fibres is designed for high production capacities and includes units for stock preparation, wetlaid forming, and binder application.
International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Saint-Gobain ADFORS, Czech Republic, to supply a wetlaid line to be installed in their Litomyšl facility for the production of glass fibre mats. Start-up of the line is scheduled for mid-2021.
The ANDRITZ neXline wetlaid line for glass fibres is designed for high production capacities and includes units for stock preparation, wetlaid forming, and binder application. With this line, Saint-Gobain will produce high-quality glass fibre mats for several markets.
The innovative ANDRITZ manifold, diffuser and former equipment ensure highly uniform fibre distribution with optimal structures during the laying process. This results in high-quality glass fibre end products.
For Saint-Gobain ADFORS, this is the second production line for glass fibre mats at the Litomyšl facility. The line will not only increase the capacity,
but also supports the company’s development for
more sophisticated and qualitative applications and organic growth.
“We look forward to leveraging on our long-standing experience in glass fibre mat production so as to
increase our presence in new segments of the glass mat market with the new neXline wetlaid line from ANDRITZ,” says Jérémy Poiret, General Manager of Saint-Gobain ADFORS Industrial Fabrics Europe. Saint-Gobain ADFORS offers technical textiles to reinforce
and surface products for both construction materials
and industrial applications. They provide comfort, performance and safety, while addressing the challenges of sustainable construction.
