Microspan® Stretching Equipment
Biax stretching (microspanning) equipment offers the highest stretching capabilities with greater uniformity, achieving desired breathability and/or drapability. This process can improve the strength, appearance and feel of film or fabrics. Both machine direction (MD) and cross direction (CD) capabilities are offered.
Biax-Fiberfilm’s name originated with our unique stretching equipment. It is derived from biaxially stretching fibers and films. The industry recognizes the term “ring-rolling” which was invented at Biax-Fiberfilm Corporation more than 35 years ago.
Stretch capabilities up to 6X. Equipment widths up to 3.5 Meter.
Stretch capabilities up to 4X. Equipment widths up to 3.5 Meter.
Stretches your film or fabric uniformly, regardless of the basis weight variations.
Only one-tenth the size of a tenter frame.
Achieve targeted degree of breathability (MVTR #).
The drapability as well as softness and hand can be increased as desired.
Pilot CD and MD machines are available at our facility for your research & development testing needs.
