CUSTOMIZABLE COLOR AND PERFORMANCE FOR NONWOVEN FIBERS
Americhem’s specialization in color science led to the development of our nVision® line of custom color masterbatches for the nonwovens industry. With nVision®, nonwoven fiber and fabric manufacturers can achieve unparalleled color control, excellent dispersion quality and consistently higher yields with additional processing benefits. These benefits include reduced aggregates and agglomerates, lower pack pressure rise and the virtual elimination of die-face buildup.
Beyond industry-leading color and uniformity, our nVision® offering can be modified with customized combinations of UV stabilizers, antimicrobials, flame retardants, softening agents, strength enhancers, hydrophilics, antioxidants and optical brighteners to meet your unique product requirements and elevate your position in the marketplace.

OPACITY MODIFICATION AND CONTROL FOR LIGHTER WEIGHT MATERIALS
A key advantage of specifying nVision® is Americhem’s extensive knowledge and research of nonwoven fibers and fabrics. In response to nonwoven manufacturers and brand owners moving toward lighter-weight materials, we have developed multiple approaches to control color quality and opacity levels during the custom colorant development process. Americhem’s nVision® color concentrates are designed to compensate for normal colorant lot-to-lot variations.
WEAVING SUCCESS ACROSS MULTIPLE MARKET SEGMENTS
The Americhem nVision® product line has become indispensable in the healthcare and hygiene market where soft-touch haptics, antimicrobial protection and hydrophilics are a must for disposable products like gauze and diapers. In today’s clean-conscious environments, nVision® delivers superior filtration performance for surgical masks and filter media.
Our nVision® custom colorant solutions have also made their way aboard automotive and transportation applications, optimizing everything from dashboard insulation and airbags to carpets and upholstery. Other durable applications such as nonwoven house wraps demonstrate Americhem’s ability to extend the lifespan of building and construction materials. If you can spin it, we can enhance it!
VALUE-ADDED PROTOTYPING AND TESTING THAT SPEEDS TIME TO MARKET
In the textile world, most product developers want to make sure their fabrics will meet all performance requirements before using them in consumer applications. To ensure a successful product launch, Americhem partners with nonwoven manufacturers to fine-tune the color and properties of our custom color masterbatch products in advance of mass production. With global fiber design centers strategically located throughout the globe, customers can take advantage of multiple prototyping machines and spun-bond pilot lines to prove out design concepts and reduce cycle times associated with product development. We also offer advanced testing capabilities and collaborate with various industry labs to validate quality and performance expectations.
