Shocking Wonders of Nonwoven Fabrics
Nonwoven fabrics are also known as "non-woven cloth". The sheet or web structures are bonded together by entangling fiber or filaments mechanically, thermally or chemically. Nonwoven fabrics parallel woven fabric in appearance, texture and strength. They are not made by weaving or knitting, hence the name "nonwoven", and do not require converting the fibers to yarn. The applications of nonwoven fabrics are highly diversified. For instance, surgical masks, environmentally-friendly bags, diapers, and sanitary pads, and many other limited life, single-use products. In fact, the application of nonwoven fabrics in our daily life is beyond our imagination.
