Before variable-frequency drives (VFDs) were commonly used, bypass and throttling were common, but inefficient, methods of varying flow to a specific end use
. Today, the most energy efficient method of varying flow is by varying pump speed with a VFD.
Pressure sensitive products are the largest end use
for formulated adhesives representing 27 percent of the volume in 2014.
Pressure sensitive products (tapes, labels, decals, etc.) are the largest end use
for formulated adhesives representing 27% of the volume in 2014 (Figure 2).
UPM Raflatac has announced the launch of an ultra removable product range for a variety of end use
"Our end use
markets are anywhere from 15 to 20 million [passenger tire equivalents] a year.
The updated study includes size, growth and end use
breakdowns of each of the roll goods and converted products markets, current and expected future penetration data and projections, breakouts of volumes by nonwoven process technology, key factors driving demand in each end use
, competitor assessments and profiles, analyses of recent and expected future changes in industry structure, raw material volumes and profitability trends.
In the durable end use
category, Sandler's sawascreen, a pleatable filter medium for air filtration, also received an INDEX award.
Although nonwovens began to be used in this end use
sector in the 1970's, demand for the product was relatively insignificant.
Nonwovens with a range of end use
potentials are offered in widths up to 3.1 meters and 11-115 gpsm basis weights.
With this technology, low-quality polyester waste that would typically be diverted to landfills could instead be recycled into high-quality polyesters suitable for a variety of end uses
, including food contact.
Awards are organized in five main groups, with relevant sub-categories, covering marketing and end uses
, printing processes, non-adhesive applications, innovation and electronic printing, and digital printing.
