We supply spunbond polypropylene and polyester, which is a textile material that is composed of thermally bonded, continuous filaments in a web-like structure. This gives it a good tear and puncture resistance with high tensile strength in all directions.
The material is extremely versatile, strong and light and resists moisture, staining and chemicals. Being constructed of 100% polyester or polypropylene it can easily be recycled.
Spunbond polypropylene can also be pinsonically welded using ultrasonic energy to form quilted products particularly suited to mattress covers. Visit our quilted fabric page to learn more about the products that we supply.
It is also important to note that both spunbond polypropylene and polyester can undergo a laminating process. When laminated with a PE film, the penetration of fluids and bacteria can be prevented, making the product especially useful within the medical industry.
Typical Uses of spunbond polypropylene and polyester:
Bed bases and mattress covers
Disposable work wear
Horticultural – weed control and frost protection
Disposable car seat covers
