Characteristics Of Non-woven Fabrics

- Aug 05, 2019-

Non-woven fabrics have no warp and weft threads, are very convenient to cut and sew, and are light in weight and easy to set. They are very popular with handicraftsmen.

Because it is a kind of fabric formed without spinning and weaving, it is formed by orienting or randomly arranging textile staple fibers or filaments to form a web structure, and then reinforcing it by mechanical, thermal bonding or chemical methods.

It is not interwoven and knitted by yarns one by one, but the fibers are directly bonded together by physical methods. Therefore, when you get the adhesive weight in your clothes, you will find that you cannot draw out the thread ends one by one.  Non-woven fabric breaks through the traditional textile principle, and has the characteristics of short process flow, fast production rate, high yield, low cost, wide application and many raw materials sources.

The Relationship between Non-woven Fabrics and Spunbonded Fabrics

Spunbonded cloth and non-woven cloth are subordinate relations.  There are many manufacturing processes for non-woven fabrics, among which spunbond is one of them.

(Including spunbond, meltblown, hot rolling and hydroentangling, most of the non-woven fabrics on the market are produced by spunbond)

Non-woven fabrics include polyester, polypropylene, nylon, spandex, acrylic, etc. according to their composition.  Different ingredients will have different styles of non-woven fabrics.  Spunbonded cloth usually refers to polyester spunbond and polypropylene spunbond.  However, the styles of these two kinds of cloth are very close, which can only be distinguished by high temperature test.

Non-woven fabric is a kind of non-woven fabric. It is a non-woven fabric formed by directly using high polymer slices, short fibers or filaments to form fibers through air flow or mechanical netting, then through spunlace, needling, or hot rolling reinforcement, and finally through post-finishing.  The novel fiber product with soft, breathable and planar structure has the advantages of no generation of fiber chips, toughness, durability and silky softness, is also a kind of reinforcing material, and also feels like cotton. Compared with cotton products, non-woven bags are easy to form and have low cost.
