What you need to know about Spunbonded Polyester

Posted on 22nd May, 2014 in Nonwovens by John Smith

Spunbonded Polyester

When it comes to industrial non-woven fabrics, durability and value for money are key. Whatever sector they’re in, from furniture upholstery to engineering, our customers need hard-wearing nonwovens that will stand the test of time.

This week on the Techtex blog, we take a closer look at one of our most popular non-woven fabrics: spunbonded polyester.

What is Spunbonded Polyester?

A strong, resistant and flexible fabric, spunbonded polyester boasts a high level of durability and age resistance, making it an excellent choice for a wide range of industrial applications.

The term “spunbonded” refers to the method of manufacturing these kinds of non-woven fabrics, which are created by bonding together extruded, spun filaments – in this case, of polyester – to create a strong, dense web of fabric.

What are the benefits of Spunbonded Polyester?

Spunbonded polyester brings with it a wide range of benefits – many of which are directly related to the manufacturing process itself.

The spunbond process is widely thought to be the fastest – and thus most economical – method of creating nonwovens, allowing manufacturers to deliver the material quickly and usually at a very reasonable cost.

Non-woven fabrics of this kind are also known for their superior tensile strength and uniformity, offering customers a reliable and durable choice of fabric.

Spunbonded polyester offers a wealth of benefits, as it is:

  1. Tough and abrasion resistant
  2. Lightweight and easy to handle
  3. Water resistant and extremely stable during humidity changes
  4. Chemical resistant, including common acids, solvents and oxidising agents
  5. Stable at temperatures of up to 150°C
  6. Harmless to health and completely non-polluting

Quick and cheap to manufacture, and versatile in its applications, spunbonded polyester is an understandably popular choice throughout a wide range of industries.

Where is Spunbonded Polyester used? As one of our most popular nonwovens, spunbonded polyester is an incredibly flexible industrial fabric, boasting a variety of applications.

With its high temperature, age and water resistance, our spunbonded polyester is often used for waterproofing and insulation, making it a popular pick with the geotextiles and cable industries.

There’s no real limit to where our 100% nonwoven spunbonded polyester can be found, though: from home furnishings like carpet and furniture, to the healthcare, insulation and filtration industries, this non-woven fabric is a cost-effective and flexible choice.
