WPT Nonwoven develops hydrophobic nonwoven material from polyester, rayon, cotton, and blends. Hydrophobic material resists water penetration with extremely low absorbency and high stability. Hydrophobic materials are needed for products that are intended to provide a dry barrier, while withstanding moisture.

Some fibers, such as polyester, naturally have hydrophobic characteristics. In other cases, coatings and treatments can be used to make hydrophobic material from naturally absorbent fiber like cotton. WPT’s resin bonding process allows us to join a variety of fibers and treat them to develop the desired nonwoven characteristics for the application.

Hydrophobic Material Characteristics:

  • High strength
  • Antibacterial
  • Soft
  • Lightweight
  • Water-repellent

Hydrophobic Material Applications:

  • Disposable medical products
  • Personal hygiene products
  • Shopping bags
  • Tablecloth
  • Packing material
  • Filter material
