Non Woven Polypropylene Bags

WELCO GROUP NONWOVEN fabric is a fabric-like material made from long fibers, bonded together by chemical, mechanical, heat or solvent treatment. The term is used in the textile manufacturing industry to denote fabrics, such as felt, which are neither woven nor knitted. Nonwoven materials typically lack strength unless densified or reinforced by a backing. In recent years, nonwovens have become an alternative to polyurethane foam.

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 tufted porous sheets that are made directly from separate fibres, molten plastic or plastic film. They are not made by weaving or knitting and do not require converting the fibres to yarn. Typically, a certain percentage of recycled fabrics and oil-based materials are used in nonwoven fabrics. The percentage of recycled fabrics vary based upon the strength of material needed for the specific use.

Non-woven materials are used in numerous applications, including:

  1. Isolation Gowns
  2. Surgical Gowns
  3. Surgical Drapes and Covers
  4. Surgical Masks
  5. Surgical Scrub Suits
  6. Medical Packaging: Porosity Allows Gas Sterilization
