iStock-sandwich-300x200At Micrex, we are introducing a new way to work with materials that up to now have been impossible to process in sheet form. Composite structures allow product designers to reap the benefits of Micrex/Microcreping, adding features such as extensibility, bulk, and absorbency in sheet material.

Many things will not Microcrepe. Think about a sandwich: Clearly you wouldn’t run an actual sandwich through any processing equipment. At Micrex, by “sandwiching” the material that is difficult to process between two layers of a sheet material which processes well, the “ham and cheese” material can be enhanced with the benefits of Microcreping.

Very often Microcreping is only beneficial to a small part of a composite structure. Our solution is to combine one layer of creped substrate with one or more layers of uncreped substrate to create new structures which have not been produced before.
