Sontara® for Compression Devices & Orthopedic Applications

  • Thanks to their exceptional dimensional stability and even surface structure, Sontara® fabrics are an excellent choice in coating applications for different plastic materials as well as for other bonding processes (e.g. ultrasonic bonding). Our fabrics allow convertors an efficient use of the converting equipment. End users appreciate the softness and non-allergenic nature for skin-contact applications. 

Sontara® for Patches

  • Sontara® fabrics made with either synthetic or natural fibers are very pure and not skin-sensitizing. Softness, extreme strength and excellent die-cutting behavior are other attributes that make Sontara® a preferred solution in medical patches.

Sontara® for Towels & Cloths

  • Sontara® fabrics can be engineered to be highly absorbent and low linting to fulfill the requirements for application in surgical towels. 

Sontara® products are made using proprietary technology for high demanding applications. High-speed water jets are used to hydraulically entangle various fibers to form a strong absorbent web. Unlike many nonwoven fabrics, Sontara® uses no binders, chemicals or adhesives. It has exceptional mechanical strength, excellent absorbency, and because the fibers are washed during fabric formation, it exhibits very low lint. These unique features make Sontara® ideal for the cleaning requirements of the quality-conscious user.
