What are the characteristics of non-woven fabrics and felt? In fact, these two materials are very different. Let’s take a closer look at the Characteristics these two materials.
Nonwoven fabric main features are as follows:
1、Non woven fabric definition, also known as non-woven fabrics, are new types of environmentally friendly materials, with breathable, water-repellent, flexible, flame-retardant, non-toxic, non-irritating, rich colors and many other features.
2、Non-woven fabric that is not woven ( scientific called nonwoven materials ) , including non-woven needle felt , spunlace , hot press, spunbond , chemical bonding , and other products .
3、Non-woven fabric is made by bonding or felting.
4、If the non-woven fabric is placed outdoors, it can be naturally decomposed and its maximum service life is only 90 days. It is placed indoors and the decomposition time is up to 5 years.
5、 Non-woven fabrics are non-toxic and odorless, and there are no leftover substances. Its characteristics ensure the environmental protection of non-woven fabrics, the key is suitable for washing.
6、Non woven polypropylene fabric are a new kind of fiber products, and they are directly formed of various polymer web forming methods and consolidation techniques using high polymer chips, short fibers or filaments, and have a soft, breathable and planar structure.
7、Non-wovens are produced by bonding or interlocking fibers. They are usually produced from olefin, polyester, and rayon.
8、Non woven polyester fabric can be made into cook’s hats, hospital gowns, robes, mops, insulation, industrial wipes and facial wipes.
9、The presence of non-woven fabrics may be felt like, paper like or very similar to that of woven fabrics.
10、Non woven filter fabric may be too much thicker than or as thin as tissue paper.It may be opaque or translucent.
11、Some non-woven fabrics have excellent launder ability where others have none.
12、The drapability of non-woven fabric varies from good to none at all.
13、Burst strength of this fabric is to very high tensile strength.
14、Non-woven fabric may be fabricated by gluing, sewing or heat bonding.
15、Non-woven fabric may have a resilient, soft hand.
16、This type of fabric may be stiff, hard, or broadly with little pliability.
17、These types of fabric porosity ranges from low tear.
18、Some non-woven fabrics may be dry-cleaned.

Felt fabric main features are as follows:
1、Felt is a non-woven fabric, but not all non-woven fabrics are felt.
2、Felting requires agitation, moisture, and usually pressure, and produces a firm, dense, non-stretchy material (no matter the fiber used).
3、Wool felt is a non-woven fabric made from animal hair or wool fibres matted together using moisture, heat and pressure.
4、Rolls of felt fabric has no strength, drape or elasticity but it is warm and does not fray.
5、Wool felt is expensive. It is used for hats and slippers and in handcrafts.
6、Fabric felt is flexible and can be used as a material for shockproof, sealing, gasketing and elastic wire clothing.
7、 Adhesion performance is good, not easy to loose, can be punched into various shapes of parts.
8、Better insulation performance, can be used as insulation materials.
9、Tight organization, small pores, can be used as a good filter material.
10、Better wear resistance, can be used as polishing material.
11、Craft felt fabric is flexible, so it is made by adhering to shrinking principle.
12、After shrinking and binding, the density can be used separately from the size.
13、Due to thick felt fabric relatively compact density of the felt, it is possible to punch and produce a variety of felt parts.
14、Felt stretch line is better, can reach the specified length of the language can be used leather scroll belt, paper suction belt.
