What is a non-woven fabric
- May 21, 2018 -

It is a kind of fabric that does not need to be woven by spinning, but the oriented or random strands of textile staple fibers or filaments are formed to form a web structure and then reinforced by mechanical, thermal adhesive or chemical methods. It directly utilizes polymer chips, staple fibers or filaments to form new fibrous products with soft, breathable and planar structures through various web forming and consolidation techniques. Simply put: It is not a single piece of yarn that is intertwined and knit together. Instead, it binds the fibers directly by physical means, so when you get the stickiness in your clothes You will find that it is impossible to pull out the thread. Non-woven fabrics have broken through the traditional textile principles, and have the characteristics of short process flow, high production speed, high output, low cost, wide use, and many raw material sources.



Its main uses can be roughly divided into:



(1) Medical cloth: surgical gowns, protective clothing, sterile cloths, masks, diapers, sanitary napkins, etc.;



(2) Home decoration fabrics: wall coverings, tablecloths, bed sheets, bedspreads, etc.;



(3) Follow-up cloth: lining, fusible interlining, batting, setting cotton, various synthetic leather base fabrics, etc.;



(4) Industrial fabrics: filter materials, insulation materials, cement bags, geotextiles, covered cloths, etc.;



(5) Agricultural cloth: crop protection cloth, breeding cloth, irrigation cloth, insulation curtain, etc.;



(6) Others: Space cotton, insulation and sound insulation materials, oil-absorbing felt, smoke filter, tea bags, etc.

Textile market development prospects



From the perspective of the international environment, the international market still has much room for development and opportunities. With the expiry of China-EU textile quotas at the end of 2007 and the end of China-US textile quotas at the end of 2008, the quota-free era of China's textiles is approaching. The area that accounts for more than 60% of the global textile market will be fully open, and will bring Chinese textile trade to China. Great opportunity. In the next few years, the world economy will still be in the rising range and will certainly promote the growth of international trade. This will give China's textile and apparel export growth a favorable international market protection.



From the domestic economic environment, domestic demand will become an important driver of industry growth. At present, about 80% of Chinese textiles are consumed in China. With the sustained and rapid growth of the domestic economy, the stable increase in residents' income will drive the further development of the domestic demand market.
