Spunlacing, also known as hydroentangling is a process of entangling a web of loose fibers on a porous belt or moving perforated or patterned screen to form a sheet structure by subjecting the fibers to multiple rows of fine high-pressure jets of water (Fig. 1). Various steps are of importance in the hydroentangling process.
Available in PES, PP, and viscose and any combination of these. Used as a barrier for low pressure injection molding. For headliner applications used as an "A" surface or "B" surface lining.
