Non-woven applications have been very popular in the non-durability of clothing, medical protective clothing such as spunlace, PP disposable spunbond protective clothing and SMS medical protective clothing and so on. At present, this new product in the field of development includes two aspects: First, the new expansion of the existing materials in clothing applications; the development of new non-woven fabric.
Non-durable non-woven clothing fabrics
SMS Non-woven spunbond and meltblown composite products, with high strength, good filter performance, non-adhesive, non-toxic, etc., have played an important role in the field of medical and industrial filter material, the recent application is the use of SMS breathable, does not produce fiber dust, to prevent the body with the outside world the characteristics of particle exchange, to be used in the pharmaceutical, bio-engineering, opto-electronics processing, electrical components and chips require a high degree of clean production environment. Spunbond non-woven from high-strength continuous filament, in a large proportion of disposable protective clothing market, the latest development is adding special additives or finishing products in the production process of the spunbond flame retardant, antistatic, radiation protection, hydrophobic, moisture transmission, antimicrobial, thermal and other features.
Development of new fibers, water-soluble non-woven is an environmentally friendly product, its application range is gradually expanding. Water-soluble polyvinyl alcohol fiber production spunlace nonwoven is a good material for the production of radiation and pollution prevention clothing. In order to increase the protective effect can also be water soluble film composite, increasing the barrier properties of protective clothing. In addition, the use of new fiber, the foreign countries have also developed a super-absorbent fiber (SAF) in the non-woven production process technology. This contains the SAF's non-woven fabrics are especially good soft feel and water absorption as a lingerie wearing, can rapidly absorb the sweat of the human body, increasing the comfort of the micro-environment between the clothing and the body.
The development of new composite non-woven materials, developed a new composite non-woven fabrics of cotton fiber, the surface layer of cotton and polypropylene fiber, thermal bonded non-woven and spunbond fabrics composed of two or three composite product feel of cotton knitted, with good strength and elongation, water absorption and water retention, wicking speed, pilling performance advantages of small, organized, elongation of 50% of the instant elastic recovery rate can reach 83% ~ 93%, suitable for the production of medical isolation clothing and disposable underwear. In addition, the U.S. military developed a new generation of chemical and biological protective clothing, full use of the advantages of woven, knitted and nonwoven three kinds of fabric, the outer layer of protective clothing is tear-resistant nylon / Cotton Poplin, after refused to water treatment; lining with activated carbon nonwovens; the innermost layer of tricot warp knit fabrics. Compared with the existing protective clothing to military special anti-chemical protective clothing, but also increased the clothing lightweight, and reduce costs, and can withstand at least three times washing.
