Structured microfilament nonwoven with textile-like performance and appearance
To improve the aesthetics and mechanical properties of nonwovens, a method for producing a structured microfilament nonwoven has been developed by Freudenberg Group of Weinheim, Germany
The structure of the nonwoven is designed to be resistant to treatments causing mechanical stress, such as repeated washing or dyeing processes. At the same time, the nonwoven has good mechanical properties, good thermophysiological comfort, and a pleasant appearance and handle.
Such materials could find application as cleaning cloths, towels, fabrics for sanitation purposes, bed linen, upholstery fabrics and lining materials, says Freudenberg.
