As a full service supplier of nonwoven fabrics, we serve a diverse range of industries. Our team is called upon to create a wide array of custom nonwovens for a variety of applications. We are able to serve these needs not only through the variety of material nonwoven fiber options we offer, but also our many treatment capabilities. In order to select the best nonwoven fabric for your application, it is important to choose the right material and the best fabric treatments to meet your needs.
Every order we create at WPT Nonwovens is a custom order because each buyer needs a specific nonwoven to fit their manufacturing needs and application. Some of the key factors we consider to ensure product development success include:
- What will the end use of the nonwoven be?
- What kind of equipment will be used for its processing?
- Aesthetically how should the nonwoven look and feel?
- What is the required tensile strength?
Understanding how your custom nonwoven is going to be used will determine what chemical makeup is going to best render that desired performance.
Choosing a binding agent is an important consideration in nonwoven product development. Chemical or resin bond provides the ability to customize fabric treatment. This process allows a wide range of characteristics to be achieved, from lofty highly absorbent nonwovens for the medical and hygiene markets, to very slick or stiff products used in construction and industrial markets. As one of the only chemical bond nonwoven facilities left in the U.S., WPT Nonwovens is able to offer a comprehensive selection of chemical bonding options.
Chemical bonding allows for many advantageous characteristics in nonwovens. We have developed nonwovens that are fire retardant, hydrophilic, hydrophobic, and heat sealable. Our production capabilities have enabled us to take large parent rolls and recoat them for customers looking for a one stop shop. We have also developed a “green” line of products that are compostable or in some cases fully biodegradable using natural viscose fibers and biodegradable or compostable binders.
