Patterned Technology



The original STRUTO Vertically Lapped Nonwoven product is the world’s first product of its kind. This technology was originally developed by the professors and students at the University of Czech Republic. In the late 1980’s the STRUTO process was patented and marketed through out the world.

There are now many STRUTO Vertical Lapped Nonwoven production lines that manufacture products for a wide range of industries:


The unique vertical orientation of the fibers provides a large amount of capacity for the STRUTO product to absorb noise, liquid, heat and other physical materials. Once the STRUTO Vertical Lapped structure is bonded and molded into the final shape, it has the ability to maintain loft much more so than a traditional cross lapped or air laid product.
