Needle punched non woven fabric is a common fabric that has a low density and is used for several applications. Its advantages include low cost, flexibility and high adaptability. The material is also strong, fluffy and water soluble. The material is suitable for a variety of applications and has a high growth rate each year.
Needle punched nonwoven fabric is produced by mechanically binding various fibrous webs. The needles penetrate the web to carry tufts of the fibres inside. This process is efficient and consumes less energy and requires no water. This method of production is highly automated and provides high throughput speeds.
Needle punched nonwoven fabric is a high-performance fabric with excellent thermal and acoustical insulation. The material is also dimensionally stable and has good processing characteristics. This material is ideal for a variety of industrial applications, including filters. Needle punched nonwoven fabric can be shaped into various shapes and sizes.
Needle punched nonwoven fabric can be produced with different stitch densities. The stitch density is measured in punches per square meter. For example, needle punched nonwoven with a 250 SD density offers better sound insulation. In addition, needle punched nonwoven fabric can be manufactured using recycled fibres.
The oil absorbing capacity of needle punched nonwoven fabric can be further improved by blending coarse and fine fibers. It is also advantageous to combine coarse and fine fibers to obtain biodegradable products.
