Spunlace vs. Meltblown: Choosing the Right Nonwoven Fabric for Your Application2023-11-09
When choosing non-woven fabrics, water jet and melt blown are two common techniques, each with its own advantages and disadvantages, suitable for different application scenarios.
Spunlaced nonwoven fabric is a new type of flexible material formed by processing polymer, fibrous aggregates, etc. through physical or chemical methods. It combines the advantages of four flexible materials: textile, paper, plastic, and leather. It is one of the products with high technological content, good product style, wide application fields, and highly praised by consumers in non-woven materials. Spunlaced nonwoven fabric has many advantages such as soft texture, moisture absorption and breathability, green and environmental protection, and is widely used in industries such as home furnishings, healthcare, aviation, and electronics.
Melt blown nonwoven fabric is also a common type of nonwoven material. It is made from polymer particles and extruded through spinneret holes in a molten state. It is then subjected to high-speed hot air flow, causing the viscous liquid fibers to suddenly stretch and form an asymmetric fiber network. Melt blown nonwoven fabrics have excellent filtration and protective properties, and are commonly used in the production of medical protective equipment such as masks and protective clothing.
When choosing spunlaced and melt blown nonwoven fabrics, it is necessary to weigh them based on the application scenario and requirements. For example, for masks or protective clothing that require high filtration performance, melt blown nonwoven fabric is a better choice; For products that require a soft texture and good moisture absorption and breathability, spunlaced nonwoven fabric is more suitable. In addition, factors such as cost and environmental friendliness should also be considered.
In summary, selecting the appropriate nonwoven fabric requires comprehensive consideration based on actual application scenarios and needs. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please consult a professional non-woven material supplier.
