What exactly is behind the name “HYDRO-SHAPE”?

High-pressure water jets entangle fibers into a 3D shape without the use of binders, heat or adhesives. Instead of just creating textile layers, this new technology enables us to produce three-dimensional structures from the fiber to the end product in a single step. Energy and material are only used where they are really needed.

The result is a 3D product that opens up new ways of reducing waste and can also be made from biodegradable natural fibers.

Norafin presented the award-winning process to the public for the first time at Techtextil 2024 in Frankfurt/Main.
