Fibrix: Bonding.

Transforming custom fiber blends into quality nonwovens requires bonding the fibers together using a variety of bonding methods. We are proud of our comprehensive facilities, which include multiple bonding capabilities, allowing us to provide custom nonwoven products that meet the unique requirements of our customers and continually surpass their expectations. Each bonding method provides unique advantages and characteristics, and we work closely with our customers to develop the most cost-effective method to ensure their precision-crafted nonwovens meet their needs and requirements.

Thermal Bonding

The thermal bonding at Fibrix involves heating thermoplastic fibers using multiple-pass ovens and/or calendering equipment, which causes heat-sensitive fibers to melt and act as an adhesive creating nonwoven material suitable for a wide range of applications. This process is ideal when durability and uniformity are vital, such as in medical mattress components and high-quality furniture foams.

Resin Bonding

Resin bonding is a method that uses water-based adhesives to bond individual fibers together. Our bonding capabilities include several resin spray lines with multiple-pass ovens, that draws the water from the resin additive to form durable materials precisely as our customers require. Bonding with resins provides nonwovens with superior strength and long-lasting durability.

Needle Punch

Using high-speed needle looms that entangle individual fibers, this age-old felting technique creates specified lofts, densities, and other custom features. Our extensive capabilities include multiple needle looms that produce felted nonwovens used throughout a wide range of industries and market applications. Needle-punch bonding can be used as a stand-alone bonding method and in combination with thermal or resin bonding methods.


We use industrial chain stitchers to adhere polypropylene backing to nonwoven products, providing additional strength and reinforcement when used in conjunction with other bonding methods. Stitch bonding is commonly used in furniture components and mattress cores for improved performance.

Unbonded Soft Goods

Unbonded soft goods are used throughout all markets for various applications, including pet beds, pillows, craft products, and more. Fibers are either carded into webs or garnetted into custom fiber fill, depending on client requirements.
