Quality products that cost less

TKW is committed to developing innovative solutions which enable clients to manufacture better products whilst containing costs.
We have developed a production process where disposable substrates are created by combining spunbound and / or meltbown with fluff pulp in a single step, making it significantly simpler than complex card and spunlace systems.

Our technology eliminates hydroentanglement and the ensuing drying, and delivers manufacturers significant energy and cost savings.

The entry-level configuration
for co-forming technologies newcomers.
The top-of-the-range complete configuration for those who are already familiar with co-forming technology.

CONSUMER TESTING:
MOST APPRECIATED BY CONSUMERS

 

Materials produced with Phantom and other co-forming technologies, even less current, are superior in providing a combination of hand protection and dirt capture, compared to those produced with traditional nonwoven production systems.

 

Phantom delivers greater fibre elongation compared to other co-forming technologies, resulting in a less rigid, more elastic product.

Phantom’s lower MDT / CDT ratio means a higher CDT and improved performance at lower weights.
