Applications of non-woven fabrics

  • Nonwovens are not made by weaving or knitting, nor do they require converting fibers into yarns. Nonwovens are engineered fabrics that can be either disposable or very durable.

    They are used in many applications including: baby diapers, wipes, surgical drapes and coverings, face shields, insulation, pillows, cushions, as well as automotive headliners and upholstery, house wraps and disposable clothing.

    Nonwoven manufacturing can be simply described as a series of manufacturing steps including forming a web, entangling or bonding the fibers in the web to impart mechanical integrity to the structure and converting the fabric to impart
    some special properties to the fabric as specified by the customer.
