Non-woven fabrics are made by oriented or randomly bracing textile short fibers or filaments to form a web structure, which is then reinforced by mechanical, thermal bonding or chemical methods. Non-woven fabrics are not interwoven and braided one by one, but the fibers are directly bonded together by physical methods. What are the general uses of non-woven fabrics?
The main uses of non-woven fabrics can be roughly divided into:
1. Home decoration cloth: wall cloth, table cloth, bed sheet, bedspread, etc.;
2. Medical and health cloths: surgical gowns, protective clothing, disinfection wraps, masks, diapers, sanitary napkins, etc.;

It has the characteristics of damp-like, air-permeable, flexible, non-combustible, and easy to decompose. Among the non-woven fabrics is a flame-retardant non-woven fabric, which has many characteristics such as high strength-good elasticity, good heat resistance, smooth surface, and corrosion resistance.
The main uses of non-woven fabrics are those introduced above. We can see that there are still many uses of non-woven fabrics, which are used in many fields.
