1.What is Nonwoven Fabric? 

Nonwoven fabrics are the fabrics that are produced directly with the use of fibers. Unlike woven fabrics, this fiber does not require to be converted into a yard to produce the final product. On the contrary, to produce them, small fibers are laid in the form of sheets and converted into fabric by bonding the fibers together. The bonding can be done chemically, mechanically, or with the help of heat or solvent treatment. There are several methods of producing nonwovens. Out of all the ways, spunbond is one such significant way of manufacturing unwoven materials. 


2.Importance of Spunbond Nonwoven Fabrics

Nonwoven spunbond fabrics do not require yards or sewing for their production. The manufacturing process is much easier than any woven fabric, which leads to the affordability and durability of the product. This makes them a drable for people, fashion enterprises, furniture manufacturing organizations, the healthcare sector, and sanitary producers. 

A few reasons why the importance of nonwoven spunbond fabrics has grown manifold over the years are: 

  • They have a high tear strength, thus making them more resilient than any other type of material. Due to their strength, they are considered appropriate for using them as carrying bags. 

  • Nonwoven spunbond fabrics, in most cases, are biodegradable, which makes them environment-friendly to use. Nonwoven bags and other products can be recycled for multiple uses. 

  • The fabric is layered, which makes it more durable. 

  • In addition, polypropylene unwoven fabric is highly repellant to liquids and thus has high tensile strength and flexibility. 

  • The fast manufacturing method makes them affordable for people to consume for miscellaneous purposes. 

  • Compared to any other nonwoven material, spunbond fabrics have excellent physical properties that make them an appropriate pick. 

  • The PP nonwovens are safe from cloth or fiber bacteria that can destroy the material. 

The above-mentioned benefits demonstrate why the fabric industry foresees a heavy rise in the market of spunbond nonwoven fabrics. Even today, many manufacturers and industries have switched to using nonwoven products for the advantages associated with their use. 


3.Applications of Spunbond Nonwovens

Spunbond nonwovens can be consumed for multiple purposes like disposable masks, use and throw gloves, child diapers, sanitary napkins, house wraps, etc. However, the application of these types of nonwovens is not only limited to these uses. They are required for several other motives like: 

  • Various industries utilize the product for disposal purposes like masks, sanitary napkins, bandages, towels, wipes, child diapers, disposable dresses, carry bags, dust cloths, etc. 

  • The dewatering property of the fabric allows it to be used widely for the closing of cement and concrete. 

  • As the nonwovens are highly durable, they also have significant use in the production of household goods and home furnishing products like drapes, upholstery, mattress paddings, table covers, chair covers, carpets, etc.  

  • In addition to that, the fabric is also required for the making of tea bags, filtering products, gel bags, and other similar products. 

  • The nonwoven fabric is furthermore used for agricultural purposes like weed control fabrics, covering crops, crop protecting fabric for crops, root covers, etc. 

  • In addition to all the applications of spunbond nonwoven materials, what sets them apart are their environmentally friendly properties. In the modern-day, when the world can see and experience the repercussions of climatic change, industries must become conscious of their surroundings and adapt themselves to more sustainable ways of manufacturing products. With its biodegradable factors, many businesses and leading industries increase their use of nonwoven fabrics.
