WPT Nonwovens produces hydrophilic nonwoven material in polyester, rayon, cotton, and blends. Hydrophilic material attract and hold water. Hydrophilic material is used for products that are made for absorption of liquids and moisture, but must retain original strength and form. Using additives such as surfactants, wetting agents, and rewetting agents, WPT can develop a hydrophilic material from a naturally water repellant material like polyester. WPT’s resin bonding process enables us to combine a variety of fibers and treat them to create the desired nonwoven characteristics for the application.
