Non-woven fabric is a fabric formed without spinning weaving fabric. It is formed by oriented or random arrangement of textile short fibers or filaments to form a web structure, which is then reinforced by mechanical, thermal bonding or chemical methods. Since the non-woven fabric has no warp and weft threads, it is very convenient to cut and sew, and it is light and easy to shape, so it is deeply loved by people.
It is not made of yarns that are interwoven and knitted together one by one, but the fibers are directly bonded together through physical methods. Therefore, when you get the sticky scale in your clothes, you will find that you can't pull out the thread ends. Non-woven fabrics break through the traditional textile principles, and have the advantages of short process flow, fast production rate, high output, low cost, wide use, and multiple sources of raw materials. Non-woven fabrics have now been applied to various fields
1. Home decoration, daily necessities and packaging bags
The application of non-woven fabrics here mainly refers to the lining cloth of sofas and beds, curtains, table cloths, household appliances cover cloths, suit covers, car interiors, car protective covers, packaging bags, etc.
2. Non-woven fabrics for clothing
Non-woven fabrics used in clothing have the characteristics of light weight, softness, low cost, wide range of thickness variation, strong adaptability, non-directional fiber arrangement, and large stretchability. It is easily compatible with all kinds of fabrics, including lining, fusible interlining, wadding, shaped cotton, various synthetic leather base fabrics, etc.
3. Non-woven fabrics for medical use
Medical non-woven fabric is a product with development potential. It gives full play to the advantages of fiber as a health care material, and is a product of emerging industrial disciplines formed by the integration and intersection of multiple disciplines and technologies. Its medical applications include surgical gowns, protective clothing, disinfection wraps, masks, diapers, civilian wipes, wipes, wet face towels, magic towels, soft towel rolls, beauty products, sanitary napkins, sanitary pads, etc.
4. Non-woven filter material
Filter materials have become an important product indispensable in modern society. As a new type of filter material, non-woven filter material is gradually replacing traditional textile filter material and becoming the leading product of filter media due to its unique three-dimensional three-dimensional network structure, uniform pore distribution, good filter performance, low cost, and multiple varieties. It is developing extremely fast.
5. Non-woven fabrics for agricultural use
Agricultural nonwovens have long service life, good effects and low investment. Promoting the use of agricultural nonwovens is conducive to promoting agricultural modernization. The main agricultural uses are heat insulation, heat preservation, wind barrier, fruit protection, prevention of plant diseases and insect pests, seedling cultivation, seeding, covering, etc.
Geosynthetics is a high-tech, high value-added industrial textile material with a wide range of uses. Non-woven geotextiles mainly include: spunbonded geotextiles, hot-melt bonded geotextiles, geomembranes, composite geotextiles, etc. Non-woven geotextiles have the functions of reinforcement, isolation, filtration, drainage and seepage prevention in geotechnical construction.
