Ultrasonic lamination is a process used to bond layers of nonwoven materials together without the use of adhesives or heat. This method utilizes high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations to create a strong, permanent bond between the layers of nonwoven material. The process is fast, efficient, and environmentally friendly, as it does not produce any harmful fumes or waste materials.
Superior can provide multi-composite materials that are useful in the production of disposable medical products, such as surgical gowns, masks, drapes, and more. These products require a high level of strength and durability, as well as a soft and comfortable feel against the skin. Ultrasonic lamination can provide these properties while also allowing for greater design flexibility and reduced production costs.
Ultrasonic Lamination Advantages
- Enhances filtration, barrier properties, absorption, insulation, breathability, strength, stability, elasticity, flame resistance, appearance, and more.
- Promotes sustainable processing methods.
- Environmentally friendly.
- Facilitates laminating up to seven layers in a single pass.
- Bonds materials with distinct characteristics, such as physical strength and melting temperatures.
