The Environmental and Application Scope of PLA Nonwoven Fabric

Understanding PLA Non-Woven Fabric

PLA Non-Woven Fabric, also known as polylactic acid non-woven fabric, degradable non-woven fabric, and corn fiber non-woven fabric. PLA non-woven fabric has the advantages of environmental friendliness and biodegradability. It has a relatively large market share in countries such as Germany, France, Australia, and South Korea and is highly favored by customers. It is widely used in medical and hygiene products, personal protective products, packaging materials, agriculture, and gardening, and is welcomed by customers.

The Environmental Friendliness and Characteristics of PLA Non-Woven Fabric

PLA non-woven fabric made from corn fiber (PLA), also known as polylactic acid fiber, has excellent hanging, smoothness, moisture absorption and breathability. It has a natural antibacterial effect and is safe for the skin. It has a weak acidity, good heat resistance, and UV resistance. This fiber does not use petroleum or other chemical raw materials, and its waste can be decomposed into carbon dioxide and water under the action of microorganisms in soil and seawater, without polluting the Earth's environment. Since the initial raw material of this fiber is starch, its recycling cycle is short, about one to two years, and its production reduces the content of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere through plant photosynthesis. When burning PLA fiber, the heat generated is about one-third of that of polyethylene and polypropylene.

PLA fiber uses natural renewable plant resources as raw materials, reducing dependence on traditional petroleum resources and meeting the requirements of international sustainable development. It combines the advantages of synthetic fibers and natural fibers, and has complete natural cycling and biodegradability. Compared with conventional fiber materials, corn fiber has many unique properties, so it has received widespread attention from the international textile industry.

Characteristics of PLA Non-Woven Fabric: degradable, environmentally friendly, soft and skin-friendly, smooth surface without shedding, good uniformity, good air permeability, good water absorption.

Applications of PLA Non-Woven Fabric

Applications of PLA non-woven fabric: medical and hygiene fabrics: surgical gowns, protective clothing, disinfection wrap fabric, masks, diapers, women's sanitary napkins, etc. Home decorative fabrics: wall coverings, tablecloths, bed sheets, bedspreads, etc. Clothing fabrics: linings, bonding linings, padding, shaping cotton, various synthetic leather bottom fabrics, etc. Industrial fabrics: filtration materials, insulating materials, cement packaging bags, geotextiles, wrapping fabrics, etc. Agricultural fabrics: crop protection fabrics, seedling fabrics, irrigation fabrics, thermal insulation curtains, etc. Others: space cotton, thermal insulation and sound insulation materials, oil-absorbent felts, cigarette filter tips, tea bags, etc.
