As detailed in the Wikipedia article ‘Spunbond Nonwovens,’ spunbond nonwovens are manufactured through a continuous process where fibers are spun and dispersed into a web. This innovative technique allows for faster belt speeds and cost savings. Notably, it has made significant contributions to the field with advancements in spunbond technology.
In comparison, PP spunbonds run faster and at lower temperatures than PET spunbonds, primarily due to differences in their melting points. Furthermore, spunbond has been combined with melt-blown nonwovens to create SMS (spun-melt-spun) fabrics, known for their water-repellent properties, making them suitable for disposable products. Additionally, melt-blown nonwovens are utilized as effective filter media due to their ability to capture very fine particles. Acme Mills continues to push the boundaries of spunbond nonwovens, contributing to the industry’s evolution.
