Influence of GS
of GSM material and fabric type on the properties of Non woven fabrics
It is not surprising that most people are not aware of Nonwoven despite the fact that most of them may be directly or indirectly using or coming across it several times each day. Nonwoven have even been described by some as invisible fabrics as we use them without realizing it. It can be seen below how Nonwoven have been a part of your daily life and yet some of you may not even be aware of this.
Nonwoven technology is one of the conventional sectors of the "traditional" textile industry and was best known for making felt used in craft products. Indeed, felted fabrics were around for centuries before weaving or knitting technology were invented.
1.1 TESTING OF NONWOVEN FABRICS
Testing of any product provides a means of standardization in terms of quality and productivity. In textiles, we have to test from raw material to the finished product. End-use oriented tests determine how the product will stand up to wear. The aim may be to identify possible end uses or compare raw materials and fabrics to arrive at optimum compatibility for a pre-determined end use.
