What is the low melting fiber?
Low Melting Fiber or LMF is a bi-component type that possesses lesser melting points compared with regular polyester fiber on its outer part i.e., sheath whereas maintain central part i.e., its coreas regular polyester. Outer part melts andexecute a role as an agent for thermal-bonding. Low melt fiber is an ecological fiber that can be used as alternative chemical adhesives. LMF has varied applications such as automotive materials (including engine hood, trunk, ceiling material and others) bedding & furniture (such as mattress and sofa), as well as hygiene products (including diapers and sanitary pads). Low melt fibers make use of sheath-core fibers for melting at high temperatures and bond with other fibers to offer outstanding matrix stability and handling features.
