Carbonfiber nonwovens by TENOWO are manufactured on the basis of recycled carbon fibers from woven and non-crimp fabric production or based on fibers reprocessed from ‘end-of-life’ components.
Nonwovens offer an economical alternative to established textiles and can provide new properties for fiber-reinforced structures.
Depending on the requirements involved, there is a choice between two types of reinforcement processes for carbonfiber nonwovens: ‘Maliwatt stitch-bonding process’ (with additional knitting yarn) or by using needle punch technology (without additional yarn material).

In addition to pure carbon fibers, blends including other fiber types, such as thermoplastic fibers, can be processed as well.
