Food Contact

Madaline® can be used to package foodstuff since it is breathable and has good moisture management properties. Since Madaline® is a highly efficient filter of bacteria and is lint-free it ensures no contamination of the packaged material with microorganisms nor synthetic micro-fibers. Madaline® can be treated to be hydrophobic and absorb UV absorption for outdoor exposure.

 

Madaline®, in its structure does not contains binders or solvents and the ingredients for Madaline® are in compliance with Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.


Technical Features

Multi-Directional Tensile StrengthMulti-Directional Tensile StrengthMadaline®, as a light weight fabric, has strong multidirectional tensile and tear strength. Additionally, Madaline® poses multidimensional stability due to its endless microfilaments which when entangled consolidate to form a uniformly stable fabric. These attributes make Madaline® an excellent material for the production of home furnishings, uniforms, outdoor active wear, vehicle interiors, etc.Bursting StrengthBursting StrengthMadaline® has been tested for bursting strength in accordance with ISO 13938-1:1999 and achieved a Class A performance level rating.Barrier Against House Dust Mites and High Bacterial Filtration EfficiencyBarrier Against House Dust Mites and High Bacterial Filtration EfficiencyMadaline® is inherently a barrier to the passage of dust mite particles with its intricate entanglement of very fine microfilaments. This web formation blocks mite particles to offer protection to those with mite allergies. Madaline® is also a very efficient filter of microorganisms and bacteria.Resistance to Abrasion Resistance to AbrasionCompared to traditional woven and knit textiles, Madaline® is durable to abrasion and therefore low-pilling. The high strength nylon component of Madaline® mitigates filaments from snapping under abrasive friction and breaking free onto the surface.Matte White ColorMatte White ColorMadaline® is manufactured as a very uniform fabric, with a very smooth and regular surface, in a matte-white color. Therefore, it is an excellent base media for printing and its micro-channels and polymers allow for very efficient use of dyes. Printed and dyed Madaline® yields outstandingly high quality optical effects.Cost EffectiveCost EffectiveMadaline is multi-washable but retains its construction, performance and shape over a long lifetime. Treatments such as easy soil release during washing lowers detergent cost and especially, its inherent characteristic to dry quickly reduces energy consumption and saves time.Environmentally FriendlyEnvironmentally FriendlyThe Madaline® production process is environmentally friendly, using recycled water, has negligible C02 emissions, and uses less energy than traditional textiles. Madaline® is performance oriented therefore less fabric is needed to achieve similar performance compared to traditional textiles.

Madaline® fills the gap in textiles with a high performance, multi-use and smart fabric that has reduced environmental impact.
