What Is Medical Non-woven Fabric?

Environmental protection of non-woven fabrics

The raw material for most non-woven fabrics is polypropylene, while the raw material for plastic bags is polyethylene. Although the two substances have similar names, they are quite different in chemical structure. The chemical molecular structure of polyethylene is quite stable and difficult to degrade, so it takes 300 years for plastic bags to decompose completely; while the chemical structure of polypropylene is not firm, the molecular chain can be easily broken and effectively degraded, and it can enter the next environmental cycle in a non-toxic form.

Introduction of medical non-woven fabrics

Medical non-woven fabric is a fabric that does not need to be spun and woven, mainly bonded together by physical means. Therefore, when you bond it, you will find that you cannot pull out threads from the non-woven fabric. It breaks through the traditional textile principles. 

Compared with traditional pure cotton woven textiles, medical non-woven fabrics have advantages such as moisture resistance, breathability, flexibility, lightness, non-flammability, easy decomposition, non-toxicity, no irritation, low price, and recyclability. Therefore, it is very suitable for the medical field.

Medical non-woven fabrics are widely used. In medicine, they can be used to produce masks, surgical caps, disposable surgical gowns, disposable medical bed sheets, maternity bags, and diapers. The longest lifespan of medical non-woven fabrics placed outdoors is only 90 days. If placed indoors, they will naturally decompose within 8 years, so they belong to a new type of environmentally friendly material.

As a disposable product, medical non-woven fabrics are not only convenient to use, safe and hygienic, but also can effectively prevent bacterial infections and iatrogenic cross-infections. Therefore, they are favored by the market. In addition to medical uses, non-woven fabrics have many applications in home decoration, clothing, agriculture, industry, and many other fields. Investment in medical non-woven fabrics for the medical and health care industry is increasing and diversifying, indicating that the market prospects for medical non-woven fabrics are very promising.

The fibers used in the production of non-woven fabrics are mainly polypropylene (PP) and polyester (PET). In addition, there are nylon (PA), viscose fiber, acrylic, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and chlorinated fiber (PVC). Hydrophilic non-woven fabrics are mainly used in the production of medical materials to achieve better feel and avoid scratching the skin. Products such as sanitary napkins and pads utilize the hydrophilic function of hydrophilic non-woven fabrics. Choose high-quality medical and health care products made of medical non-woven fabrics for safety, environmental protection, and great market prospects.
