Non-woven fabric is a fabric that does not require spinning and weaving, but rather orients or randomly arranges short fibers or filaments to form a fiber network structure, and then strengthens it by mechanical, thermal bonding, or chemical methods. It directly uses polymer slices, short fibers or filaments through various fiber web forming methods and consolidation technologies to form a new type of fiber product with soft, breathable and planar structure.
The fibers of non-woven fabrics can be natural or chemically processed, and can be short fibers, filaments or fibers formed on site. The sheet, fiber web or batt made by orienting or randomly arranging fibers and joining them together by friction, entanglement, or adhesion, or a combination of these methods, does not include paper, woven fabrics, knitted fabrics, pile fabrics, and wet felting felt products. Simply put, it is not intertwined and knitted by a single strand of yarn, but directly adhered together by physical methods. Therefore, when you see fiber fluff in your clothes, you will find that you cannot pull out a single strand of thread. Non-woven fabrics break through the traditional textile principle and have the characteristics of short process flow, fast production speed, high yield, low cost, wide application, and multiple raw material sources.
Compared with other textiles, the short production cycle, fast production rate, high yield, and low cost of non-woven fabrics make its application extremely wide. Its products can be seen everywhere and can be said to be closely related to our daily life.
Many disposable hygiene products we use in our daily lives use non-woven fabrics, such as disposable bed sheets, pillowcases, sleeping bags, underwear, compressed towels, facial mask paper, wet wipes, cotton pads, sanitary napkins, and diapers. The medical industry also cannot do without non-woven fabrics, such as surgical gowns, isolation gowns, masks, bandages, dressings, and wrapping materials. In addition, non-woven fabrics are also widely used in household wall coverings, carpets, storage boxes, vacuum cleaner filter bags, insulation pads, shopping bags, clothing dust covers, car floor mats, car roof fabrics, car door liners, filter fabrics for filters, activated carbon packaging, seat covers, soundproof and shock-absorbing felts, and rear window sills, etc.
We believe that with the continuous innovation of the raw materials, production processes and equipment of non-woven fabrics, more and more high-performance non-woven fabric products will appear in our lives to meet our diverse needs.
