Nonwoven Materials Testing

Non-woven fabric is composed of oriented or random fibers, which is a new generation of environmental protection materials, which is moisture-proof, breathable, flexible, light, non-combustion-supporting, easy to decompose, non-toxic and non-irritating, rich in color, low price, recyclable and so on, are recognized internationally as environmentally friendly products that protect the earth's ecology. They are suitable for agricultural films, shoemaking, tanning, home textiles, decoration, chemicals, printing, automobiles, medical and health disposable surgical clothes, masks, building materials, furniture, and even today's fashionable gift bags, boutique bags, shopping bags, advertising bags and other industries. The most concerned issue of non-woven fabric users is the quality and performance of the product, followed by the price.


Significance of nonwovens testing

  • In order to continuously expand the application fields of non-woven fabrics, it is very important to develop high-tech products of non-woven fabrics and master the performance indicators of various raw materials.
  • In order to carry out technical exchanges and business negotiations between buyers and sellers, and improve the success rate of trade negotiations, distributors must understand and master the test items of non-woven fabrics, which can save business negotiation time and enable users to accept their products.
  • The performance test of nonwovens is the basic basis for manufacturers and distributors to make product manuals, and it is also the key to the success of business negotiations. Therefore, in the fierce product market competition, the performance testing of nonwovens is particularly important for occupying the market.
