What is Non woven Fabric?

To write this article of blog, we want to show a complete information about the non woven(More clear explain than wikipedia).Non woven included the whole non woven industry, here we say about the Non woven Fabric.

How are non woven fabrics made? Nonwoven Fabric made by oriented or random fiber, which is a new generation of environmentally materials. The characteristics are moisture, breathable, flexible, light weight, non-combustion, easy to break, non-toxic, non-irritating,colorful, low prices, re-use and etc.

Non woven Fabric is a fabric without weaving.So easy? No, Non woven Fabric have various of applications and different technology, the full knowledge is hard. Anyway we will show you all information with an easy way.


Nonwoven 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 or tufte porous sheets that made directly from separate fibers, molten plastic or plastic film. If we put the material in the outdoor by the natural decomposition, the longest life of only 90 days, if placed in the room within 8 years.When we burn it without toxic and harmless,so the non woven fabric never pollute the environment and thus we say it is friendly.

With Friendly Non-woven materials used in numerous applications, including:

(1) Medical and health non-woven fabrics

Surgical gowns, protective clothing, disinfection cloth, masks, diapers, household wipes,wet wipes, magic towels, soft towels, beauty products, sanitary napkins, health care Mats, and disposable hygiene fabrics etc.

(2) Home decoration non-woven fabrics

Non woven wallpaper, tablecloths, bed sheets, bedspreads and so on.

(3) Clothing use non-woven fabrics

Lining, adhesive lining, flakes, stereotypes cotton, all kinds of synthetic leather fabric and so on.The Wipes cloths is one of the major.

(4) Industrial non-woven fabrics

Reinforcing materials, polishing materials, filter materials, insulation materials, cement bags, geotextiles, covering cloth and so on.

(5) Agricultural non-woven fabrics

Crop protective fabric, nursery cloth, irrigation cloth, insulation curtains and so on.

(6) Other non-woven fabrics

Space cotton, insulation materials, suction felt, smoke filter, bags, shoes and so on.

You see we use a lot of non woven fabric in our life. We cannot leave non woven now.


Non woven production fiber is mainly polypropylene (PP), polyester (PET). In addition, there are nylon (PA), viscose fiber, acrylic, sponge (HDPE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC). According to the application requirements, non-woven fabrics divided into two categories:disposable application and durable.

Different Types of Non woven Fabrics

According to the production process we say it main has seven types of non woven fabrics:
1. Spunlace nonwoven:

Spunlace technology is the high pressure of fine water jet to one or more layers of fiber network, so that the fibers tangled together to be reinforced with a certain strength. A photo to show how spunlace fabric made:

2. Heat-bonded non-woven fabric:

Hot-bonded non-woven fabric is adding in the fiber network or powder-like hot-melt adhesive reinforcement material, and then heat by heating and cooling into fabric. It containsair through non woven fabric andthermobond non woven fabric..

3. Airlaid Non woven Fabric:

Air-laid paper is a textile-like material categorized as a non woven fabric made from wood pulp.Unlike the normal paper making process, air-laid paper does not use water as the carrying medium for the fiber. Fibers carried and formed to the structure of paper by air.

4. Spunbond non-woven fabric:

Made in one continuous process. Fibers are spun and then directly disperse into a web by deflectors or it can directe with air streams. This technique leads to faster belt speeds, and cheaper costs. PP spunbonds run faster and at lower temperatures than PET spunbonds, mostly due to the difference in melting points

5. Meltblown nonwoven:

The meltblown nonwovens process: Fiber feeding — melt extrusion — fiber formation — fiber cooling — into the net — reinforced into Fabric. Spunbond has combine with melt-blown nonwoven,we call it SMS non woven fabric.

6. Acupuncture non-woven fabric(Needle Punched):

Is a dry non-woven fabric. Needle Punched non-woven fabric is using puncture needle puncture to the fluffy fiber reinforced into fabric.

7. Stitchbond Nonwoven Fabric:

Stitching non-woven fabrics is a dry non-woven fabric, sewing method is the use of warp-knit coil structure of the network, yarn layer, non-woven materials (such as plastic sheet, plastic thin metal foil Etc.) or a combination thereof to make into a nonwoven fabric.

Where can i buy non woven fabric?

That is usually depend on the quantity you need. If you only need several meters or kgs, you’d better buy from shop or international B2C market, like Amazon to see if they can suit for your requirement.

When you need to buy bulk, you can buy from the manufacturers directly.Usually most of countries have non woven fabric manufacturers, you can google if if there is any non woven supplier in your local market.

Also to import your non woven fabric from China is a good option. When your quantity is more than 1,000kgs or even full container loading, you can get very good competitive prices from China non woven suppliers.
