what is PP non woven?
 (PP) Spunbond non woven 

Technically PP = Polypropylene is a plastic noted for its light weight, being less dense than water; it is a polymer of propylene. It resists moisture, oils, and solvents. Since its melting point is 121°C (250°F), it is used in the manufacture of objects that are sterilized in the course of their use. Polypropylene is also used to make textiles, ropes that float, packaging material, and luggage.

NB: PE = widely used plastic. It is a polymer of ethylene, and is produced at high pressures and temperatures in the presence of any one of several catalysts, depending on the desired properties for the finished product. Polyethylene is resistant to water, acids, alkalizes, and most solvents. Its many applications include films or sheets for packaging, shower curtains, unbreakable bottles, pipes, pails, drinking glasses, and insulation for wire and cable. Worst biode- gradability than PP.

Conclusion: in fact, PP and PE are very similar, they are both plastic. For European markets, we usually order PP woven (import tax related issues). No matter PP or PE, if we are required “woven” bag, there are the same kind of bags. But non-woven material (much lighter) is totally different from “woven”.

Since recent years, it tends to replace the traditional existing textiles, fabric and paper for some obvious reasons. The main asset of Non woven polypropylene (P.P.) fabric is that it is made of spun bond polypropylene which can be recycled, naturally decomposes (untreated non woven fabric can decompose in the outside within a few months only..) and completely incinerates without any production of poisonous pollutants (does not pollute directly or indirectly the environments,...

It does not contain any harmful substances itself and does not require the use of poisonous gas, wasted oil or effluents.

Non woven P.P fabric carries a lot of useful properties:

  • Excellent softness
  • Anti bacteria
  • water resistance (even repellence with waterproofing treatment,
  • Air permeability,
  • Fire resistance,
  • high level of tensile strength
  • high elongation rate
  • no allergies to human bodies
  • relatively cheap to produce.

What are the possible applications of PP Spunbond Fabric?

it can be applied to manufacturing a useful list of products related to promotional needs or storage and packaging (bags), Medical and hygiene (disposable products), protective equipments and items (disposable bed sheets), agricultural UV protective films, ...

Some of our partner factories enjoy the ability to really make the non woven fabric for years and as well got the expertise on the same site to fabricate any kind of finished products. We can thus QC the entire process from start to finish.
