New Ways to Think About Absorbency

Customize the absorbent properties of your sheet materials using Micrex technology. WATCH VIDEO Learn about the traditional measures of absorbency, as well as how The Micrex Process can enhance the absorbency of your sheet materials. Read more

Our Product Is Our Technology

We are often asked — “What are you selling?” This is a reasonable question for companies looking for commodity products. There are no “Micrex wipes” or “Micrex bandages” – At Micrex, our product is our technology. We collaborate with some of the most creative Research & Development organizations in the world. Micrex may be viewed externally […]

Microcreping and Composites

What does a ham and cheese sandwich have to do with Microcreping? We like to use it as an example of what you can do to transform your materials. Many materials that would benefit from Microcreping will not process due to complications with temperature, fiber length, or a variety of other factors. At Micrex, we […]

Methods of Material Selection and Optimization

Microcreping delivers a new method of material optimization: many successful commercial Microcreped products have resulted when characteristics of the incoming substrate were also optimized for Microcreping. Learn how material optimization can reduce costs and improve performance.

Turn 2D into 3D

Most sheet materials (nonwovens, film, paper, textiles, composites) are two dimensional. Micrex compressive treatment technology allows you to alter an existing material to make it three dimensional. This transformation also changes other physical properties such as softness, bulk, extensibility, and more. These enhanced properties give designers new options that would be impossible with existing 2D materials. At Micrex, […]
