Nonwoven Fabric Introduction

Non‐woven fabric is an engineering fabric, manufactured by putting small fibers together in the form of a sheet and then binding them either through thermal bonding, mechanically (as in the case of felt), with an adhesive, or by interlocking them with serrated needles such that the inter‐fiber friction results in a strong fabric.

The term is used in the textile manufacturing industry to denote fabrics, such as felt, which are neither woven nor knitted. Nonwoven materials typically lack strength unless densified or reinforced by a backing. In recent years, nonwovens have become an alternative to polyurethane foam. Nonwovens can be single use (disposable) products or durable fabrics depending upon the need of end use.

Nonwoven Fabric

Non-woven Features

  • No weaving or no knitting
  • No Yarn
  • Use fibers or chips
  • Variety bonding of fibers
  • Nonwovens are Engineered Fabrics
  • Fabricated much faster with greater flexibility
  • Can be slit in both directions without fraying
  • Heat sealed/seamed/folded/shaped in a variety of ways
  • Ultrasonic welding possible
  • Nonwovens are manufactured by high-speed,low-cost processes-Large Volume,Lower cost than traditional processes.
  • Nonwovens have barriers to imports because of capital requirements & low labor requirements.
  • Nonwovens are in many applications already,but most are hidden and you do not see them.
