Nonwoven industrial fabrics


If you are looking for excellent product performance, construction simplification and cost reduction opportunities, consider Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomer (PBE).

It can deliver excellent adhesion to a range of nonwoven substrates and can enable the design of robust, high-quality composite products. As a result of its high compatibility with other polymers, Vistamaxx PBE can also deliver product design flexibility and coextrusion processing.

It can help industrial fabric manufacturers tailor the end-use properties of polypropylene (PP)- and polyethylene (PE)-based coatings, to provide:

  • Excellent flexibility and elasticity
  • Toughness
  • High coefficient of friction (COF) for anti-skid properties
  • Adjustable water vapor transmission rates
  • Improved UV resistance compared with PP

Potential applications that could benefit from Vistamaxx PBE include:

  • Construction textiles such as roof underlayment
  • Waterproofing and expansion tapes
  • Reinforced membranes used in architecture, construction covers, awnings, canopies and tarps
  • Insulation facings and foam boards
  • Automotive laminates
  • Industrial wrappings
