Industries That Use Non-woven Spunbond

There are many advantageous properties of non-woven spunbond fabric that allow it to be used by various industries. It can be easily manufactured at a low cost which enables industries to meet the high demand for their products. It’s lightweight, flexible, and durable which makes it the perfect material for a wide variety of applications from hygiene to agriculture.

Below are the leading industries that use polypropylene non-woven spunbond in their products.

Medical Disposables

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an exponential increase in the consumption of face masks. The medical industry has been working overtime for the past two years which has also resulted in an increased demand for surgical gowns and disinfecting wipes, both products that use non-woven spunbond in their production.

Non-woven spunbond is used in disposable clothing for patients, doctors and nurses, surgical gowns, and headwear since its anti-bacterial, breathable, lightweight, and soft.

Personal Care and Hygiene Items

Non-woven spunbond is lightweight, soft, durable, and breathable, which makes it ideal in the manufacturing of disposable and single-use personal care and hygiene items. Adult diapers, sanitary pads and tampons, wipes and baby products use non-woven material.

Protective Clothing and Construction Wear

Spunbond material can also be manufactured in a variety of colours, which means this can be used for jackets worn by construction workers and field workers. The material protects them on the job, is convenient to wear for longer work hours and is visible from afar.

Agricultural Sector

The agriculture industry uses the material as root control bags, weed reduction matting, seed blankets and frost covers. Non-woven spunbond can assist with temperature management and ensure the soil is kept loose and moist. Spunbonds’ air and water permeability along with its light transmittance make it an effective material for greenhouse management. Non-woven material used as ground cover reduces the need for irrigation. As a tool for controlling water supply, spunbond helps farmers with their early-stage crops and seedlings. Spunbond can also assist in preventing fruit rot and damaged roots as it manages air permeability. The properties of the non-woven fabric allow for pest control and maximizes the effects of fertilizer, leading to less loss of yield.

Automobile Industry

Non-woven spunbond is used to make up to 40 parts of an automobile. Because of its low density and lightweight.

Flame retardants can be added during manufacturing to achieve certain technical specification dependent on where it is used within a vehicle.

Spunbond can be used for sound and temperature insulation, roof and floor liners, carpeting, and reinforcement layers. Because the non-woven material is a favourite in filtration, its use has been extended to vehicles as well such as cabin air filters, motor oil filters, and transmission oil filters.

Home Textile

Its use is extended as a home textile as well, being used in bedding bags, bed sheets, pillowcases, storage boxes, linings of handbags, shoe covers, and tablecloths.

Polypropylene non-woven spunbond is lightweight, durable, and breathable which allows multiple industries to use it in a variety of ways. From single-use disposable items to crop management, from home textiles to vehicle components, this material is flexible in its use and application.
