Processing spunbond nonwoven fabrics

Two figures are indivisibly connected with the success of Freudenberg Nonwovens: Carl Ludwig Nottebohm and Ludwig Hartmann.

Nottebohm was the inventor of the first Freudenberg nonwoven products, Vlieseline® lining materials and the Vileda window cloth. Since 1948, these products have undergone continuous improvement and are still bestsellers on international markets.

In the mid-1960s Ludwig Hartmann devised a cost efficient solution for processing spunbond nonwoven fabrics. The method he developed allowed nonwovens to be made from granulate raw material in one continuous production process. He was responsible for Freudenberg's first commercially viable nonwoven spunbond products: sticking plaster backings, Lutrabond® tablecloth material, Lutradur® polyester... (more)


This stage involves gathering all the necessary materials needed to make your product. Some factories provide materials and assembly; sometimes you will need to buy materials separately.


"Production run" means making a lot of one product at once. The factories listed under "production" can produce small and/or large quantities. The minimum order for a production run can vary from factory to factory (some have no minimum, some require a dozen, and some require up to 1,000 to be made at once)
