What is elastic nonwoven?

Introduction: Elastic nonwoven is a brand new nonwoven product that breaks the situation that elastic film materials are not breathable, too tight and have little stretch. Elastic nonwoven fabric is a nonwoven fabric that can be pulled horizontally and vertically and has elasticity. The reason why it is elastic is because of the addition of elastic masterbatch.

1.Advantages of elastic nonwoven fabric

①It is water-repellent, breathable, flexible, non-combustible, non-toxic and non-irritating, and colorful. If the material is placed outdoors by natural decomposition, its longest life is only 90 days, placed indoors in 5 years decomposition, burning non-toxic, tasteless, and no residual material, thus not polluting the environment, so environmental protection comes from this.

②Short process, fast production speed, high yield, low cost, wide range of uses, raw material sources and other characteristics.

③Elastic non-woven fabric is a complete break of the elastic film material is not breathable, too tight, stretching small situation, completely solve the excessive squeezing caused by abdominal redness, swelling, itchy these side effects; loose and tight, stretching freely, feel soft, breathable, no tight pressure feeling.

It can be applied to materials such as eye mask, steam eye mask, 3D mask, boom band, ear hanging material, mask substrate, medical tape, antipyretic patch, plaster patch, fitness belt, weight loss belt, beauty headgear, hair cover, knee protector, elastic bandage, baby diaper adult incontinence pants waistband, etc.


2.Types of elastic materials

At present, there are various types of elastic materials in the field, using various production processes and with different characteristics.

①Elastic spandex yarn

Highly tensile response, products are laminated online with the surface layer of non-woven fabric to form longitudinal stretch non-woven fabric, with mature technology and low cost.

②Hot melt elastomer

Elastomer sprayed yarn is laminated with the top layer nonwoven to form longitudinal elastic nonwoven.

③Four-sided elastic nonwoven/film

The process is similar to the adhesion method, the elastomer is sprayed with silk, formed and wound, and the product is laminated with the surface layer nonwoven to form a longitudinal stretch nonwoven; the two-component double/multi-layer laying web is similar to the adhesion method, the product is produced to activate the longitudinal elasticity and laminated with the surface layer nonwoven to form a longitudinal stretch nonwoven.
