Non-Woven are the fabrics or webbed structures that are bonded together by chemical, mechanical, thermal or solvent treatment and not by knitting or weaving. Non-Wovens are tufted porous sheets that are made directly from molten plastic, plastic films or separate fibers. These are not made by weaving or knitting and do not require converting fibers to yarn. Non –Woven fabrics can be recycled after use and some recycled fabrics and oil based materials are also used in making non-woven. Non-Wovens have the property of imitating texture, strength and appearance of a woven fabric. Non Woven Fabrics are used in various fields like medical, personal grooming, home and furnishing etc.
