Nonwoven Fabrics in Packaging

Packaging isn’t something most people think about. They tend to think about the product inside the package. Almost everyone has bought meat that is shrink-wrapped on a tray with a small white absorbent pad under the meat. That small pad is made with nonwoven fabric. Those reusable bags you bring with you to the grocery store (not the canvas ones)? Nonwoven fabric. Nonwovens offer many advantages in the packaging market. Here are a few examples.

Not all envelopes are made from paper. Some envelopes are made from nonwovens and provide strength, durability and lightness to protect the materials you are mailing.

Reusable bags have become extremely popular with consumers as part of the earth-friendly movement. And most of these bags are made from nonwovens. They are lightweight, sturdy and cut down on the number of plastic bags being used.
