ES Indorama Ventures - Bicomponent Fibers

ES Indorama Ventures is a global supplier of synthetic bicomponent fibers.

The company is an established J/V between Indorama Ventures PCL and JNC Corporation. The company utilizes its proprietary technology portfolio and state of the art manufacturing facilities to develop and supply innovative products for customers and holds several patents for our technology.

Strategically located production and commercial sites allow ES Indorama Ventures to be the only bicomponent fiber supplier offering global product platforms. A broad product portfolio, which includes various polymer combinations, coupled with superior customer technical service and product quality differentiates ES Indorama Ventures from the competition. differentiates ES FIBERVISIONS TM from the competition.

ES Indorama Ventures develops, manufactures, and markets bicomponent fibers for nonwoven and industrial applications. Our fibers are used in nonwovens made by carding, wet lay and air laid web formation processes and consolidated by thermal bonding, air through bonding, needle punching and spunlacing.

ES Indorama Ventures has a global footprint and is the world’s leading supplier of bicomponent fibers.

Fiber Products

Bicomponent fibers from ES Indorama Ventures are very advanced multifunctional fibers. Manufactured from two different polymers, customers have the opportunity of using the polymers for different purposes.

The sheath material (typically polyethylene) has an excellent softness but is also characterized by having a low bonding temperature and can thus be used as binder material in fiber blends or to other kinds of materials.

Also, Polypropylene is gaining ground as a sheath material and apart from the fiber performance a PP/PP bico fiber also allows easily recyclable products being a one polymer bicomponent product. In combinations with Polyester core the resiliency and capability for ultrasonic bonding also provides great advantages in nonwoven manufacturing and final product compositions and performance.

The core material (polypropylene or polyester) normally is used to ensure the integrity of the product. This core is not melted during bonding and forms a three-dimensional network in the product, giving the nonwoven product strength and resilience.

Generally speaking, ES Indorama Ventures has a vast array of opportunities when designing a unique and tailor-made fiber to a customer.

The fiber design takes into consideration:
  • which process the fibers will be used in and
  • which role the fiber plays in the final construction
Based on that ES Indorama Ventures will be able to adjust the following “basic instruments”:
  • Polymer types and brands, process additives, functional additives, surface agents, etc.
  • Polymer spinning conditions (core/sheath configuration, temperature, pressure, speed, and cooling),
  • Fiber stretching & finishing (temperature, speed, crimping, opening, surfactants/finishes)

The variations are countless, and therefore even “impossible requirements” can often be fulfilled.

We use proprietary technology and state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities to supply innovative products to customers and thus providing softness, bulkiness or binder fiber capabilities in industries such as hygiene, textiles, filtration, automotive, construction and composites. Coupled with the general Indorama Ventures capabilities we offer the broadest product portfolio and from manufacturing sites around the world, we can supply you with the products you need where you need them.

We invite you to contact us for assistance in finding the best fiber solutions for your needs.

Fiber Engineering

In order to make these fiber formation technologies function in an optimal way, the fibers need to be carefully adjusted with respect to behaviour in the formation process (either through means of air, water or by mechanical means).

Web consolidation (by means of calendars, ovens, spunlace, needles, etc.) also play a major effect in achieving the full benefit of the bicomponent fibers.

ES Indorama Ventures employees’ combined competencies in fiber engineering and knowledge of web formation and consolidation enable us to find the potential opportunities and save valuable time and cost. Instant access to vital information thus makes your business profitable. Our bicomponent fibers are primarily developed for nonwovens, composites and fiber reinforced products. Our main focus is on the following features:

  • Softness
  • Bulk
  • Binding

and additionally:

  • Biodegradability
  • Heat sealability
  • Elastic behavior
  • Sterilizability
  • Adsorbency
  • Botanicals
  • Odeur control
  • Softness & drapability
  • Dust free / Lint free
  • Impermeability (hydrophobicity)
  • Colour fastness and printability
  • Anti bacterial
  • Permeability (hydrophilicity (permanent or intermediate)
