Explaining Sheet Separation

Q.

What is sheet separation?

A.

“Sheet separation” is another term for delamination – this is applicable to laminated structures, where numerous folds in the laminated material may cause layers of the sheet to separate, or delaminate. This can also occur in non laminated materials such as spunbonded polyolefins.
