Many of us use wet wipes and disinfection wipes in our lives, but most of us don’t know what materials are made of wet wipes and what is the difference between wipes and paper towels?
Usually we call non-liquid household paper paper towels, that is, dry paper towels. The wet wipes are wet tissues used to wipe the skin.
In our impression, the biggest difference between wet wipes and paper towels is that one contains water and the other does not contain water. In fact, apart from the presence or absence of moisture, the biggest difference between wet wipes and paper towels is the raw material. Paper towels are mainly household paper made of wood pulp, straw pulp, cotton pulp, etc. There are two types of wet wipes according to the raw materials: one is wet-strength paper, the other is non-woven fabrics, most of the wet wipes are made of non-woven fabrics, if subdivided, most of the raw non-woven fabrics are spunlace.
Spunlace non-woven fabrics spray high-pressure fine water jets onto one or more layers of fiber webs to entangle the fibers with each other so that the fiber webs can be reinforced and have a certain strength. The resulting fabric is the spunlace non-woven fabric. Its fiber raw materials have a wide range of sources, such as polyester, nylon, polypropylene, viscose fiber, chitin fiber, superfine fiber, tencel, silk, bamboo fiber, wood pulp fiber, seaweed fiber, etc.
Wet-strength paper, the so-called wet-strength paper, refers to paper with a wet-strength agent added. Generally judged wet strength paper, there are the following standards: wet strength/dry strength (tensile strength)>20%; when damp or immersed in water, it still maintains more than 15% dry strength and can resist cracking or dissociation.
