The wet laid or paper-making process is a core area of expertise for H&V. Short fibers are suspended in a fluid, the fibers are deposited onto a screen or porous surface to remove the fluid, and the web is then consolidated mechanically, chemically, or thermally. Wet laid materials have outstanding uniformity when compared with other nonwovens.

We offer the following broad range of paper/wet laid production processes and materials:
