[ 2018/12/27 ] Non woven fabric - the best choice for environmental protection

Author : Guide Nonwoven     
Non woven fabric, also known as non woven fabric, is made of oriented or random fibers.  It is a new generation of environmentally friendly materials.  It is moisture proof, breathable, flexible, light, non combustible, easy to decompose, non toxic and non irritating, rich in color, and price.  Low cost, recyclable and so on.  For example, polypropylene pellets are used as raw materials, which are produced by high temperature melting, spinning, paving, and hot pressing and continuous one step process.  It is called a cloth because it has the appearance and some properties of the cloth.


Advantages of non woven fabrics:


1.  Light weight

Polypropylene resin is the main raw material for production.  The specific gravity is only 0.9, only three fifths of cotton is fluffy and feels good.


2.  Soft

It consists of fine fiber (2-3D) light point hot melt bonding.  The finished product is moderately soft and comfortable.


3.  Water, breathable

The polypropylene slice does not absorb water, the water content is zero, the finished product has good water repellency, and is composed of 100% fiber with porosity, good gas permeability, and easy to keep the cloth surface dry and easy to wash.


4.  Non toxic, non irritating

The product is produced in accordance with FDA food grade raw materials, does not contain other chemical components, has stable performance, is non toxic, has no odor, and does not irritate the skin.



5.  Antibacterial and anti chemical agents

Polypropylene is a chemically blunt substance, which is free of insects and can isolate the bacteria and insects in the liquid. Antibacterial, alkali corrosion, and finished products do not affect the strength due to erosion.


6.  Antibacterial

The product has water extracting properties, is not moldy, and can isolate the bacteria and insects in the liquid, and is not mildewed.


7.  Good physical properties

It is made by directly spinning polypropylene into a mesh, and the strength of the product is better than that of the general staple fiber product, the strength is non directional, and the longitudinal and transverse strengths are similar.


8.  In terms of environmental protection

In terms of environmental protection, the raw material of most non woven fabrics used is polypropylene, and the raw material of plastic bags is polyethylene.  Although the two substances have similar names, they are far from chemically different.  The chemical molecular structure of polyethylene has considerable stability and is extremely difficult to degrade.  Therefore, it takes 300 years for the plastic bag to be decomposed.  The chemical structure of polypropylene is not strong, and the molecular chain can be easily broken, so that it can be effectively degraded.  And in the non toxic form into the next environmental cycle, a non woven shopping bag can be completely decomposed within 90 days.  Moreover, the non woven shopping bag can be reused more than 10 times, and the environmental pollution degree after disposal is only 10% of the plastic bag.


The latest policy on environmental protection promotes environmentally safe alternative plastic bags.  Non woven fabrics and their products are a step in this direction.  Nonwoven products can be recycled.  Therefore, the use of non woven products not only saves trees, it will also appeal to your environmentally conscious customers.


Why do more and more people start to use non woven fabrics?  Because the non woven fabrics are durable and fashionable, they can be recycled, can be reused, are more convenient to use and carry, and can be washed and so on.  In combination with other materials they offer products with different characteristics of the spectrum and are used alone or as part of clothing, furniture, health care, engineering, industrial and consumer products.
