Bicomponent Fiber and Low Melting Fiber Market Report and Forecast from 2020 to 2028

What is low melting fiber?

Low melting fiber can be melted at temperature such as 100~200°C that bonds with other fibers deprived of any injurious adhesives than normal polyester fiber which can be melted at higher temperature of above 280°C. This property subsidizes to environmental preservation by producing low heat and carbon dioxide. It finds application in several areas such as door trims, automotive car interiors, ceiling materials, head liners, construction, furniture, industrial sector.

Low melting fiber is referred as a bi-component fiber which has strong bonding properties. The low melting fiber is used in the spinning of durable yarns. Moreover, this fiber is used as excellent insulating material in automotive and construction industry, due to its intricate structure. Furthermore, this fiber is blended with solid recycled material or solid polyester fibers, which is further used for the car molding. The low melting fiber provides easy bonding and high elasticity, and thus is used for the production of interior parts of car, mattress, medical goods, among others.

Low Melting Fiber refers to a bi-component fiber used as a thermal bonding fiber and its structure is typically a sheath/core type. It is composed of a sheath polymer and a core polymer. The melting point of the sheath polymer is lower than that of the core polymer.
