6 Nonwoven Solutions for Production - Milmar
Filters and fibreglass covers made of nonwovens. Two examples of how useful and practical nonwoven fabrics are. Read more about their versatile application in manufacturing, in the automotive or processing industry and get inspiration on how to employ nonwovens and reduce packaging costs. One of the main benefits of nonwovens is their low price, compared to other packaging solutions.


1. Protective Bags


Nonwoven fabric is a popular material for many types of protective packaging. In Milmar, we say with confidence that our nonwoven bags are very much in demand. Our clients use them to separate and protect items in large multipacks, for example when packing headlights.


“Automotive productions usually require antistatic nonwovens. Thanks to this quality, dust particles don’t cling to wrapped products — which is a very important factor for further production,” says Milan Polouček, Milmar’s Managing Director.





2. Dividers


Nonwoven dividers separate layers of products in boxes. This is a very cost-efficient solution — inexpensive lightweight nonwovens provide enough protection for lighter products (of ca. 20 grams) in multipacks. Cuts from nonwoven fabric make effective protective packaging and serve as a popular damage-prevention solution for transport.


TIP: Apart from its low price, nonwoven fabric has another great benefit: it’s universal. Nonwoven packaging doesn’t have to be made-to-measure for each item size. It protects the item well even if you use a slightly larger piece of nonwoven fabric.

3. Nonwoven Filters


The use of nonwovens isn’t limited to just protective packaging. “A client from the engineering industry uses nonwoven fabric during machining — to separate machining splinters from cooling agent,” says Milan Polouček, Milmar’s Managing Director.





4. Fibreglass Cover


Nonwoven fabrics also make practical fibreglass covers. This practice is common in the automotive industry — it requires a nonwoven bag, sealed from all sides, which is then filled with fibreglass through an injection tube. This "padding" is then put into the exhaust systems of cars.


Fibreglass in a car exhaust reduces the speed of exhaust fumes — making the exhaust quieter. But fibreglass cannot be inserted into exhausts on its own — it needs a cover. Nonwoven covers are perfect — once the car engine starts for the first time (still in production), the nonwoven fabric burns away, leaving the fibreglass in place to make the exhaust less noisy.





5. Nonwovens in Upholstery


Upholsterers and furniture makers use cuts of nonwoven fabrics for seating furniture. Sofas and armchairs are made of constructions padded with foam. Nonwoven fabric is used to hold the foam padding in place. Final upholstery is put over it.

6. Protective Items


Many protective items can be made from nonwovens. Disposable medical coats. Shoe covers. Lab coats. Disposable mats. Nonwoven protective equipment is typically used in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. But not just that — any production, facility or lab can make use of them — especially those putting a great emphasis on sanitation.
