Non-woven interfacing is a fabric that is formed without spinning and weaving, but simply by orienting or randomly bracing textile staple fibres or filaments to form a fibre network structure, which is then reinforced by mechanical, thermal or chemical means. It is not made up of a single yarn interwoven and knitted together, but the fibres are directly bonded together by physical means. The non-woven interfacing breaks through the traditional textile principle and is characterised by short process flow, fast production rates, high output, low cost, versatility and a wide range of raw material sources.
Properties of non-woven interfacings
Non-woven interfacing is a non-woven fabric, which is formed by directly using polymer slices, short fibres or filaments to form a web of fibres by airflow or machinery, then by hydroentanglement, needling, or hot rolling reinforcement, and finally by finishing. It is a new generation of environmentally friendly material, which is moisture-proof, breathable, flexible, lightweight, non-combustible, easily decomposed, non-toxic and non-irritating, colourful, inexpensive and recyclable.
Classification of non-woven interfacing
According to the process is divided into: hydroentanglement non-woven interfacing, thermal lamination non-woven interfacing, airflow into the network of non-woven interfacing, wet non-woven interfacing, spunbond non-woven interfacing, meltblown non-woven interfacing, needled non-woven interfacing, sewn non-woven interfacing.
Hydroentangled nonwoven interfacings are made by spraying a high-pressure micro-flow of water onto one or more layers of fibre webs, which entangle the fibres together to strengthen the web and give it a certain strength.
Thermally bonded non-woven interfacings are made by adding fibrous or powdered hot-melt bonding reinforcement to the fibre web, which is then heated and melted and cooled to form the fabric.
Air-flow nonwoven interfacing can also be called dust-free paper or dry paper nonwoven. It is the use of airflow forming technology to open the wood pulp fibre board into a single fibre state, and then use the airflow method to make the fibres agglomerate on the forming curtain, the fibre network and then reinforced into cloth.
Wet non-woven interfacing is placed in the aqueous medium of fibre materials into a single fibre, while making different fibre materials mixed, made of fibre suspension pulp, suspension pulp transported to the web-forming institutions, fibre in the wet state into the web and then reinforced into cloth.
Spunbond nonwoven interfacing is formed after the polymer has been extruded and stretched to form a continuous filament, the filament is laid into a web, which is then bonded by itself, thermally bonded, chemically bonded or mechanically reinforced to turn the web into a nonwoven fabric.
The process of meltblown nonwoven interfacing: polymer feeding - melt extrusion - fibre formation - fibre cooling - web formation - reinforcement into fabric.
Needle-punched nonwoven interfacings are a type of dry nonwoven. Needle-punched nonwovens use the puncturing action of a felting needle to reinforce the fluffy fibre web into a fabric.
Sewn nonwoven interfacings are a type of dry nonwoven fabric. The sewn method uses a warp-knitted coil structure to reinforce fibre webs, yarn layers, non-woven materials (e.g. plastic sheets, plastic foils, etc.) or a combination of them to make a nonwoven fabric.
