Non woven fabrics are engineered fabrics, single-use fabric or a very durable fabric. Non woven fabrics provide specific functions such as ECO friendly, absorbency, liquid repellency, resilience, stretch, softness, strength, flame retardant, wash ability, cushioning, filtering, bacterial barrier, reusable, degradable, non toxic and sterility made using very clean and energy efficient manufacturing processes. These properties are often combined to create fabrics suited for specific jobs, while achieving a good balance between product use-life and cost. They can mimic the appearance, texture and strength of a woven fabric and can be as bulky as the thickest padding's. In combination with other materials they provide a spectrum of products with diverse properties, and are used alone or as components of apparel, home furnishings, health care, engineering, industrial and consumer goods. Non woven materials are used in numerous applications: Hygiene – Medical – Filters – Geotextiles – Packaging

History of PP

Non wovens are produced by extruding melted polymer fibers through a spin net or die consisting of up to 40 holes per inch to form long thin fibers which are stretched and cooled by passing hot air over the fibers as they fall from the die. The resultant web is collected into rolls and subsequently converted to finished products. The extremely fine fibers typically polypropylene differ from other extrusions particularly spun bond in that they have low intrinsic strength but much smaller size offering key properties. Often melt blown is added to spun bond to form SM or SMS webs, which are strong and offer the intrinsic benefits of fine fibers such as fine filtration, low pressure drop as used in face masks or filters and physical benefits such as acoustic insulation as used in dishwashers.
One of the largest users of SM and SMS materials is the disposable diaper and feminine care industry The manufacturing of Spun bond Non Woven Fabric involves a continuous process, which convert thermoplastic raw material (polypropylene) into a web composed of continuous filament.
Spun bond is highly versatile and meets the needs of diverse range of products, and is fast replacing traditional fabrics. Spun bond is safe, reliable, convenient and comfortable to use. Spun bond is highly versatile and it meets the need of diverse range of products like medical, hygienic and industrial market application. The properties of the fabric are breathable, soft light, chemical resistant, nontoxic and environment friendly.
Non woven fabrics are broadly defined as sheet or web structures bonded together by entangling fiber or filaments (and by perforating films) mechanically, thermally or chemically. They are flat, porous sheets that are made directly from separate fibers or from molten plastic or plastic film. They are not made by weaving or knitting and do not require converting the fibers to yarn. Typically, a certain percentage of recycled fabrics and oilbased materials are used in nonwoven fabrics. The percentages of recycled fabrics vary based upon the strength of material needed for the specific use.
