Manufacturing Process of Non woven fabric:


 This process involves putting small fibers altogether in the form of a web of sheet and then binding them either mechanically with thermally and melting the binder onto the web by checking and increasing temperature. Some main functions are also involved in non-woven materials, which we are high light in this article.

Let's have a look.

1.    Staple non-wovens

2.    Melt-blown

 Which one is better?

Both have their benefits. Knitted clothes or materials are faster to work with because you don't need to end seams or insert zips and buttons. But they are trickier to handle, curling up and stretching as you work with them.

It would help if you needed to use different alternative techniques with each. All those stretch stitches are necessary when you are sewing with knits. You will also need to change your needle, using a pencil or ballpoint or stretch needle for knits and a worldwide sharp needle for wovens.

  A woven and non-woven production method depends on a fiber combination, giving materials its irreversible properties like density, thickness, weight, pattern, stability or, breathability, flexibility, color, and fabric handle, texture.

Both are very beneficial with their properties and usages activities.
