What is the difference between non-woven fabrics and melt-blown fabrics? Although both non-woven fabrics and melt-blown fabrics are woven fabrics, the processing and production processes of the two are different. In addition, non-woven fabrics and melt-blown fabrics also have performance characteristics There is a certain difference. The big difference between non-woven fabrics and melt-blown fabrics is that the scope of application is different, and the main raw materials for processing non-woven fabrics and melt-blown fabrics are also different!
1. Different raw materials. Non-woven fabrics mostly use polypropylene pellets as raw materials. Melt blown cloth is mainly made of polypropylene as raw material;
2. The function is different. The non-woven fabric is moisture-proof, breathable, flexible, light weight, non-combustible, easy to decompose, non-toxic, non-irritating, and recyclable. Melt blown cloth has many voids, fluffy structure, good anti-wrinkle ability and good filterability;
3. Different uses. The non-woven fabric has no warp and weft, it is convenient to cut and sew, and it is light in weight and easy to shape. It is deeply loved by craft lovers.
Non-woven fabric is a kind of fabric that does not need to be spun and woven. It only needs oriented and randomly arranged short textile fibers to form a net-like structure, which is then reinforced by mechanical, thermal bonding or chemical methods. It is not weaving one by one, but directly bonding the fibers together through physical methods. Non-woven fabric breaks the traditional textile principle and has the characteristics of short process flow, fast production speed, high output and low cost.
Melt blown cloth is mainly made of polypropylene as the main raw material, and its fiber diameter can reach 1-5 microns. The structure has many voids, is relatively fluffy, and has good wrinkle resistance, so that the meltblown cloth has good filtering, shielding, heat insulation and oil absorption. It can be used in various fields such as air, liquid filtration, isolation, absorption, masks, warmth, oil-absorbing materials, and wiping cloths.
What is the difference between non-woven fabrics and melt-blown fabrics? Compared with melt-blown fabrics, non-woven fabrics have fast production speed and high output. Not only that, the application range of non-woven fabrics is also more extensive. In addition to distinguishing between woven fabrics and meltblown fabrics, it can also be distinguished from the air permeability and tensile strength of non-woven fabrics and meltblown fabrics.
