To most, the word nonwoven means “not a woven” or “not a knit”, but nonwoven fabrics are much more. The first nonwoven fabrics were produced in the United States in the 1940th. These early nonwoven fabrics were created by adhesively bonding fiber webs. Today, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry (INDA) defines a nonwoven as “sheet or web structures bonded together by entangling fiber or filaments mechanically, thermally or chemically. Due to its assortment of achievable characteristics nonwoven fabrics penetrate a wide range of markets including medical, apparel, automotive, filtration, construction, geotextiles, and protective.
