Application of Non-woven Fabric Cloths in Medical Textiles

Understanding non-woven fabric cloth:

Non-woven fabric cloth, also known as nonwoven fabric, needle-punched cotton, needle-punched non-woven fabric cloth, is made of polyester fiber and produced through needle-punching process. It can be made into different thicknesses, textures, hardness, etc. Non-woven fabric cloth is a new type of fiber product with softness, breathability, and flat structure. Its advantages include no fiber crumbs, strong and durable, silky soft, and it is also a type of reinforcing material. In comparison with cotton fabric, non-woven fabric cloth bags are easier to shape and cheaper to produce. Medical textiles made of non-woven fabric cloth have become indispensable in surgery and medicine. The range of applications for this material demonstrates its incredible versatility and adaptability.

Understanding the application of non-woven fabric cloth in medical textiles:

In addition to the extensive list of non-woven fabric cloth products, there are some lesser-known applications, such as artificial livers, hearts, kidneys, and mechanical lungs, vascular grafts, ligaments, blood vessels, heart valves, and artificial skin. But what is most astonishing is the potential future applications. For example, the combination of natural fibers and biodegradable polymers will be used to develop exciting new medical textiles. Due to precariousness of life, non-woven medical textiles technology is under strict scrutiny - it is this scrutiny that raises quality standards and opens doors for new applications in the industry, which were only dreams come true not long ago.

Organic engineering, nanotechnology, and the constantly expanding field of biomaterial science are opening up new horizons for medical textiles and related industries. Non-woven fabric cloth is one of the many exciting catalysts for these promising technological developments. While most people are aware of the increasingly important products of disposable incontinence/personal hygiene, how about using non-woven fabric cloth technology to repair/replace bones, organs, vascular systems, and skin grafts? In short, non-woven fabric cloth technology greatly improves the lives of many by using relatively new and exciting fields of biomedical textiles.

Here are some controllable characteristics of non-woven fabric cloth that make it an ideal choice for medical applications: porosity, fabric weight, thickness, sterilization capability/usability, unrestricted customization, cost-effectiveness.

One of the most impressive uses of non-woven fabric cloth is as implants, because it offers: controlled permeability, good tissue growth, low parameter elongation, and good water absorption.
