Research and development, latex compounding, spinning, needling, rubberising, vulcanising, moulding, cutting, punching and finishin. The entire production process at Enkev is completed in-house.
In the needling process the curled fibres are linked together by a special technique, normally onto a hessian or PP backing. A thin layer of latex may also be applied for enhanced binding of the fibres. Needled coir and hair are produced in rolls and sheets.
The spun natural fibres are shaped into a fleece and sprayed with latex as part of the production process. The latex binds the curled fibres which are then pressed and vulcanised in several layers into resilient Hairlok® and Cocolok® sheets.This process leads to sheets with a very open and resilient structure.
In Havivank we needle a full range of non wovens and fleeces. In our non woven factory we produce a full range of needled non wovens for the mattress industry. We are very flexible and have a wide range of different fibres on stock which we can blend into almost any combination. Lately our 'Eco' products have been well received on the market.
