The company reports that, “While the aramid containing spunlace base offering has not changed, the Innovation Team at Jacob Holm has developed an exciting pipeline of products based on the unique Sontara technology. In the spirit of pioneering, we would be pleased to collaborate with you on additional product adaptations or innovations that are essential to further building value for you in the market.” Also,“ Jacob Holm is delighted to continue providing aramid fabrics under this simplified supply chain, and we look forward to strengthening partnerships with our valued customers through the addition of Kevlar and Nomex fabrics to our product offering.”

DuPont first introduced the proprietary aramids containing spunlace technology to the market 31 years ago at its Sontara production facility in Old Hickory, TN. Jacob Holm maintained production of the aramids containing protective fabrics while implementing significant production asset upgrades, quality enhancements and other process improvements to it’s Sontara sites, when the Sontara brand and assets were acquired by Jacob Holm in 2014.

Jacob Holm has sold the aramid containing fabrics through DuPont as a toll manufacturer, for the past four years. From 1 September, Jacob Holm begins deliveries of Kevlar and Nomex protective fabric products directly from the Sontara Old Hickory production site. This will eliminate routing through DuPont warehouses and other facilities, the company explains.

Jacob Holm, a leading innovator of spunlace nonwoven fabrics, has announced a simplified supply chain for its production of Kevlar and Nomex protective fabric products, effective from 1 September 2018.
