What is non-woven material
Non-woven fabric (non-woven fabric) is a kind of fabric formed without spinning and weaving, only the textile short fibers or filaments are oriented or randomly braced to form a fiber network structure, and then reinforced by mechanical, thermal bonding or chemical methods.
Characteristics of non-woven fabrics
1. Light Weight
With polypropylene resin as the main raw material, the specific gravity is only 0.9, only three-fifths of cotton, with fluffiness and good hand feeling. Soft Made up of fine fibers (2-3D) with light dotted hot-melt bonding. The finished product is moderately soft and comfortable.
2. Water Repellence and Breathability
Polypropylene slices do not absorb water, and the water content is zero. The finished product has good water repellence, is composed of 100% fibers with porosity, and has good breathability.
The products are water-repellent, not moldy, and can isolate the bacteria and insects in the liquid, not moldy.
In terms of environmental protection, the raw material of most of the non-woven fabrics used is polypropylene, while the raw material of plastic bags is polyethylene, the two substances are similar in name, but they are very different in chemical structure. The chemical molecular structure of polyethylene has a fairly strong stability, extremely difficult to degrade, so plastic bags need 300 years to decompose; while the chemical structure of polypropylene is not strong, the molecular chain can easily break, so it can be effectively degraded, and in a non-toxic form into the next environmental cycle, a non-woven shopping bags in 90 days can be completely decomposed. And non-woven shopping bags can be reused more than 10 times, and the pollution of the environment after disposal is only 10% of plastic bags.
