Nonwovens offer many advantages in all types of filtration. Whether a filter is designed to keep the air in your home clean, an operating room sterile, or to remove dirt and grit from the oil in your car before it reaches the engine, nonwoven fabrics get the job done.
Filtration encompasses a broad area and needlepunched nonwovens can be utilized in many ways. Whether it is the primary filtration media or a component incorporated with other materials it is a successful media. The areas needlepunched material can be used are limited only to the imagination, in both dry and wet applications.
Needlepunch fabrics are extensively used in automotive applications in the trunk, under the hood and in the interior. The needlepunch fabrics can be made to provide heat insulation, acoustical barriers, filters for liquids and air and interior surface fabrics. Soft needlepunch fabrics are used to make protective pads that mechanics place on the automobile to protect the paint and finish during repairs.
