Nonwoven Fabrics in Consumer Products
Do you drink coffee or tea? Have you ever used a softener sheet in the clothes dryer? If you said yes to either question, then nonwoven fabrics are part of your life. Nonwovens offer many advantages in the consumer products market.
Nonwovens are ideal for tea bags and single-serving coffee bags because they have no odor or taste and are extremely strong when wet, so you don’t have to worry about tea leaves or coffee grounds floating in your beverage.
Dry floor cloths provide convenience and performance. These nonwoven sheets are thick enough to conform to any surface to better trap dust, dirt and hair.
Chances are, you have used a laundry dryer sheet at least once. These thin anti-static sheets are made from durable nonwoven fabric and can stand up to high temperatures inside the clothes dryer. Dryer sheets can also be manufactured to slowly release scents and softeners during the drying cycle.
