The Nonwovens Research Lab (UTNRL) is located
on campus at The University of Tennessee,
Knoxville, USA. It features
several advanced melt blown pilot lines and many other
processing and test facilities designed to
make a fully equiped nonwovens research lab.
At UTNRL, university professors, students, and engineers
come together to create a facility to support nonwovens
studies, research, and applications. Our research meltblowing lines are available to private industry as well as government
through research grants. Operators
are available on-site to man the machinery and help troubleshoot
any problems with the processing of your materials. Engineers are
available to help you determine the viability of your product, how
to improve it, and how to acquire the properties that you desire.
They can also help determine a course of action when an unexpected
result occurs during the processing of your material. We have expertise
in Materials Science and Engineering, Polymer Engineering, Chemical
engineering, Physics, Imaging, Parts Manufacture, and Textile Science.
