Stitchbond Nonwoven technology is a process that pierces through flexible substrates in the form of nonwovens, films, papers and foams (or combinations thereof) with a series of pointed needles positioned adjacent to each other. These needles then stitch either a simple or complex network of textile yarns into the substrate(s) to form textile/nonwoven hybrids for a broad array of applications. The stitching either strengthens or reinforces substrates, or brings an extensive number of alternative properties to the resulting composites.
Stitchbond polyester nonwoven fabrics are typically used in the following applications:
Carpet Underlay and Carpet Backing
Mattress Exteriors and Bedding
Disposable Patient Lifting Slings
Pipe Lagging and Coverings
