Meltblown nonwoven fabric is made by blowing hot air or steam through a fine mesh screen to create a web of microfibers. Meltblown nonwoven fabric is highly absorbent and has excellent barrier properties, making it ideal for use in surgical masks, filters, and other medical applications.
Meltblown fabric plays a crucial role in filtration within masks, especially in medical-grade and N95 respirators. Its exceptional filtration efficiency stems from the fine fibers created during the meltblowing process. Meltblown fabric's filtration efficiency, microfiber structure, electrostatic charge, and breathability make it an indispensable component in masks, especially those designed to protect against airborne particles and pathogens. Its ability to filter out small particles and microorganisms is vital for ensuring the wearer's safety, making it a key material in high-performance face masks and respirators.
