published in Issue 184, February 2017
Nonwoven fabrics are highly versatile and can be designed to provide specific functions, including absorbency, flame retardancy, liquid repellence, stretch and washability. As such, nonwoven fabrics have long been used in a variety of technical applications including: agriculture and horticulture; automotive; building and construction; filtration; medical and hygiene; packaging; and wipes. However, nonwoven fabrics also offer scope for manufacturers of apparel and home textiles to innovate and add value to their products. For example, nonwoven fabrics can be used to create temperature regulating apparel, insulating apparel, and furniture upholstery which is resistant to creasing. Key companies which produce nonwovens for apparel and home textiles applications include Ahlstrom, DuPont, Freudenberg Performance Materials, and Sandler. This report profiles these four key players, and provides the latest information about their business activities, business strategies and products – with a specific focus on nonwoven fabrics for apparel and home applications.
