Jet strips – hydroentanglement technology

A method for the mechanical bonding of nonwovens is hydroentanglement, also known as the spunlace method.

This technology channels water at pressures of 30 to over 400 bar through very precisely manufactured nozzles. This produces a continuous curtain of water. The impelling force of the water jets lead to mechanical anchoring of fibers in the product.

Jet strips of different specifications serve as tools in this method. Groz-Beckert's line of products for hydroentanglement is marketed under the name HyTec®.
