Static Fabrics and Nanofiber Composites

Material Property It’s a composite from production of “dry-laid nonwoven fabric” as main substrate together with nanofibers. Micro dusts can be intercepted by the static electricity of “dry-laid nonwoven fabric” and deposit on the surface of the fibers. After composition with nanofibers, the filtration efficiency is increased and the filter usage life is extended. Thicker[…]

Meltblown Fabrics and Nanofiber Composites

Material Property It’s a composite material using “meltblown” as main substrate together with nanofibers. The first layer is “meltblown” for the purpose of pre-filtering and to improve the volume of dust capacity. The “nanofiber layer” is to enhance the overall filtration efficiency. The composite filter can fully meet the requirements of air filtration performance. The[…]

PP Nanofiber

Material Property Nonwoven is made by spun or filament, webbing via air or mechanical. It is then through spunlace, needle punch, or hot rolling reinforcement. Finally it forms the nonwovens materials. It’s soft, breathable and with plane structure. Its advantage is no fibrous debris, strong, durable and silky soft. It’s reinforcement material and the cost[…]
