With the continuous development of the COVID-19 epidemic, many people have begun to understand masks. Whether the production material of masks is melt blown cloth has caused many people to discuss, then what is the difference between melt blown cloth and non-woven fabric? Why choose meltblown cloth? Let's find out!


The main differences between non-woven fabrics and meltblown fabrics are different properties, different characteristics, and different applications. The details are as follows:


1. Different in nature

Melt blown cloth

Melt-blown cloth, also known as melt-blown non-woven fabric, melt-blown non-woven fabric, and melt-blown non-woven fabric. It is mainly made of polypropylene, polyurethane and polylactic acid. The fiber diameter can reach 1 to 5.



Non-woven fabric

Non-woven fabrics, also known as non-woven fabrics, needle-punched cotton, needle-punched non-woven fabrics, etc., are produced using polyester fiber and polyester fiber materials. High-speed hot air flow is used to perform the trickle flow of polymer melt extruded from the nozzle orifice of the die. It is made by drawing technology, so the non-woven fabric has the characteristics of whiteness, smoothness and softness. The common use is facial mask paper.


2.Different in features


Melt blown cloth

Melt blown cloth is the core material of masks. It is characterized by many voids, fluffy structure and good anti-wrinkle ability. The ultra-fine fibers with unique capillary structure increase the number and surface area of fibers per unit area, so that the melt blown cloth has good filtration, shielding, heat insulation and oil absorption. sex.

The meltblown cloth filter material is randomly distributed and bonded together by polypropylene microfibers. The appearance is white, flat and soft. The fiber fineness of the material is 0.5-1.0μm. The random distribution of fibers provides more thermal bonding between fibers. Opportunities, so that the melt blown gas filter material has a larger specific surface area, a higher porosity (≥75%). After high-pressure electret filtration efficiency, the product has the characteristics of low resistance, high efficiency and high dust capacity.


Non-woven fabric

Non-woven fabric has the characteristics of moisture-proof, breathable, flexible, light weight, non-combustible, easy to decompose, non-toxic and non-irritating, rich in color, low price, and recyclable. For example, polypropylene (PP material) pellets are mostly used as raw materials, which are produced by a continuous one-step method of high-temperature melting, spinning, laying, and hot-pressing.



It is not made of interwoven and knitted yarns one by one, but the fibers are directly bonded together by physical methods. Therefore, when you get the sticky scale in your clothes, you will find that, It is impossible to draw a single thread. Non-woven fabric breaks through the traditional textile principle, and has the characteristics of short process flow, fast production rate, high output, low cost, wide use, and multiple sources of raw materials.


3. Different in applications


Melt blown cloth

It can be used in the fields of air, liquid filter materials, isolation materials, absorption materials, mask materials, thermal insulation materials, oil absorption materials and wipe cloths.


Non-woven fabric

It can be used in different industries, such as sound insulation, heat insulation, electric heating film, masks, clothing, medical, filling materials, etc.
