Non-woven textile is a type of fabric that is made from bonded and/or interlocked fibers. It can be used for purposes as varied as face masks, medical garments and diapers to carpet underlay, floor mats, automotive trunk liners and wall coverings. Non-woven fabrics are known for their versatility, which is why they are so popular in many industries for many applications
According to INDA, non-woven fabrics are made by bonding or interlocking together fibers or filaments. Some are flat, porous sheets others, such as those from Delaware Valley Corporation, have a loft and a structured face as desired. Non-woven textiles can be made from combinations of various types of fibers, or films. The resulting fabric is strong and resilient, making it ideal for many uses.
Needles-punched textiles are commonly used in industries, such as the automotive, consumer and construction. Textiles from Delaware Valley Corporation can be used as wall coverings, filtration, sound deadening, or even dermal medical wraps.
The selection of raw materials is the first step in the manufacturing of a non-woven textile. These raw materials can be natural fibers, such as cotton or wool, or synthetic fibers, such as polyester or nylon. Next comes the decision regarding the construction of the textile. The construction is dependent upon the fiber chosen and the end-use of the textile. Construction and the process used to achieve it include Airlaid, Wetlaid, Meltblown, Spunbond, Needle-punched and variations of these. We at Delaware Valley Corporation generally believe that Needle-punched is the most versatile.
Sew Guide notes that needle-punched, non-woven textiles are created by linking or interlocking fibers together using a needle (barbed in this case) or fluid jet to entangle them. A binder (such as a low melt powder or fiber) can be added to the web and thermally activated after interlocking to hold the fibers in place.
The following are just a few benefits of using a non-woven technical textile.
