NCSU Opens Nonwovens Laboratory

NCSU OpensNonwovens LaboratoryThe North Carolina State University (NCSU) College of Textiles recently opened a $12-million Partners Lab at the Nonwovens Cooperative Research Center (NCRC), Raleigh, N.C. NCRC was established in the early 1990s to help strengthen the global competitiveness of the nonwovens industry through a coordinated, industry-monitored program of research, both fundamental and applied, education and technology transfer.The Partners Lab specializes in melt spinning and hydroentangling. The multi-purpose installation incorporates commercial technologies from Nordson Fiber Systems, Hills Inc. and Fleissner. The new facility is not only important to the university, but also to local industry, said Terry ORegan, Freudenberg Inc. This new laboratory allows our company to run trials and experiment with new polymers and new processes.August 2002
