Control Air and Liquid Permeability
With coated nonwoven, the material’s amazing properties as a backing are used, for example, to control air and liquid permeability.
This is determined based on what nonwoven is chosen and what coating is applied to the material.
Coated nonwoven is usually made from spunbond consisting of polyester fiber or polypropylene fiber that is then coated with another material.
Nonwoven can also be coated to make it reflective (aluminum coating) and antistatic.
WHERE IS IT USED?
Often used as a backing or stabilizer for different materials – in the construction industry for example.
Construction: The construction industry uses nonwoven, usually spunbond, coated with polyethylene for waterproofing in wet rooms or as wind and moisture protection outdoors. Coated spunbond is
also used as a vapor barrier. With different coatings, you can create different densities and levels of permeability.
Absorbents: Because the material can block liquid but allow moisture in, it is often used for bags of moisture or odor absorbents e.g. in the packaging and transport of food products or clothing.
Furnitures and beds
Coated nonwoven is a collective term for different types of nonwoven material, like spunbond, that have been coated with another material to achieve different properties and control factors such as liquid or air permeability.
We offer different levels of density and air and liquid permeability for indoor, wet room and outdoor applications.
Among other products, we have coated spunbond that allow moisture through but blocks liquids. Our coated spunbond is
available in rolls up to 3.0 meters in width and up to 15,000 meters in length.
