Texas-based company adds meltblown line to serve facemask market needs

AUSTIN, TX, January 21, 2021-

With first responders across the country suffering from shortages, PPE manufacturer Armbrust American today announced that its factories are now capable of producing meltblown, the non-woven fabric material that is crucial to filtering out microscopic particulate matter such as the coronavirus.

In 2019 less than 3 million tons of meltblown material was produced in China, which isn't enough to manufacture a sufficient supply of PPE like surgical and N95 respirator masks. The move to produce its own meltblown allows Armbrust American to control costs and better scale its operations so that America's first responders have the protection they need.
