WHO WE ARE
Captiqs, the non-wovens brand of Balta Oudenaarde, is a key European producer of technical and residential needle punched non-wovens, made from virgin and recycled polypropylene and polyester staple fibres.
Our 5 state-of-the-art needle punching lines are equipped for mono- and multilayer non-wovens from 70 to 2,500 grams per square meter, with a thickness of between 0.5 and 15mm.
Our winding devices can make rolls of up to 5.2 meters wide with diameters of up to 1.2 meters.
Our structuration machines offer the possibility to make dilours & rib surface modification.
Our fibre bonding techniques go from the classic latex coating to the more advanced techniques of thermal activation of bicomponent fibres, film lamination, hot melt and powder scattering; depending on the desired properties of the final product the appropriate technique is chosen.
Our warehouses have a surface area of over 20,000 m² where trucks can be loaded from the rear (4 truck loading platforms are available) and from the side.
Moreover we are equipped to transport our rolls both in a vertical and horizontal way.
Our lab is well equipped to test both incoming and finished goods on various physical (strength, shrinkage, water absorption and repellency) and chemical properties (colour fastness, etc. ) ; testing of specific flame retardancy, hydrophobic, anti-static, O90 … properties are tested in accredited partner laboratories.
Our polypropylene related business is vertically integrated which offers control at every stage of the production process, from raw material to finished non-wovens: moreover all our operations are compliant with both the ISO9001 and ISO14001 management systems, as well as all legal obligations.
