We generally divide fabrics into three categories, namely knitted fabrics, woven fabrics and non-woven fabrics. Today, let's meet non-woven fabrics.
Non woven fabrics, also known as non-woven fabrics, needle punched cotton, needle punched non-woven fabrics, are made of polyester fiber, polyester fiber (PET for short), and are made by needle punching process, which can make different thicknesses, feel, hardness, etc.
Nonwovens are moistureproof, breathable, flexible, light and thin, flame retardant, non-toxic and tasteless, cheap, and recyclable. It can be used in different industries, such as sound insulation, heat insulation, electric heater, mask, clothing, medical, filler materials, etc
Product characteristics of non-woven fabrics
The non-woven fabric has no warp and weft threads. It is very convenient to cut and sew, and it is light in weight and easy to shape. It is very popular with handicraft lovers.
Because it is a kind of fabric formed without spinning and weaving, it is simply formed by directional or random arrangement of textile short fibers or filaments to form a fiber mesh structure, and then reinforced by mechanical, thermal adhesive or chemical methods.
It is not interwoven and knotted by yarns, but the fibers are directly bonded together by physical methods. Therefore, when you take the adhesive lining in your clothes, you will find that there is no thread end. Nonwovens break through the traditional textile principle, and have the characteristics of short technological process, fast production rate, high output, low cost, wide use, and multiple sources of raw materials.
