Nonwoven fabric is a type of textile material that is made from fibers or filaments, often without the traditional weaving or knitting processes used in conventional fabric production. Nonwoven fabrics are versatile and can be used in a wide range of applications, from disposable products like medical masks and wipes to durable materials like geotextiles and automotive interiors.
The specific manufacturing process and equipment used can vary depending on the desired properties and applications of the nonwoven fabric. The choice of fibers, bonding methods, and finishing processes will also determine the fabric's characteristics, such as strength, texture, and functionality. Nonwoven fabrics are valued for their cost-effectiveness, speed of production, and suitability for disposable and specialized applications.
Nonwovens may be a limited-life, single-use, or very durable fabric. Nonwoven fabrics provide specific functions such as absorbency, liquid repellency, resilience, stretch, softness, strength, flame retardancy, washability, cushioning, filtering, bacterial barriers, and sterility.
Nonwoven fabric is safe to use: The correct term for medical nonwoven fabric is typically 2 to 3 years, with the validity period of products from different manufacturers varying somewhat. Please follow the usage instructions.
