Facts about non-woven PP Eco-friendly bags
This material is defined as a web or sheet of polypropylene fibers bonded together by entangling the fiber or filaments mechanically, thermally or chemically. They are flat, porous sheets that are made directly from separate fibers. They are not made by weaving or knitting and do not require converting of fibers to yarn.
Nonwoven polypropylene is the new miracle fabric. It’s a recyclable plastic fabric that is often used to make promotional tote bags. Nonwoven polypropylene is a practical fabric because it’s strong and extremely lightweight, so it is convenient to carry as well as inexpensive to ship. The fabric is also comfortable and soft and is commonly used to make surgical masks and gowns.
How are Non-Woven Polypropylene Bags Eco-Friendly?
Nonwoven polypropylene bags promote a greener earth because they are reusable, easy to clean, recyclable, and sometimes made with recycled products. These bags can be quickly wiped clean, and some of them are machine washable in cold water if they are drip dried. Most nonwoven polypropylene bags are also made of 5-type recyclable plastic. Reusing and recycling them could save many standard plastic bags from sitting in a landfill. After the non-woven polypropylene bags have been recycled, they may even be made into new totes.
What are Some Additional Benefits of Non-Woven Polypropylene Bags?
Less energy is used to create nonwoven polypropylene bags than is used to create cotton bags. If more companies begin producing nonwoven polypropylene materials, then the pollutants could be decreased and nonwoven polypropylene will become even more environmentally-friendly.
Nonwoven polypropylene bags are excellent and affordable promotional items because they can be made in many different colors and easily printed with company names.
What Exactly is Polypropylene?
It is a plastic that is manufactured utilizing a high heat source. It’s molecular formula is (C3 H6)x. There are a few different names such as Polypropene, Polipropene 25, Propylene polymers, and more.
What are Some Properties of Polypropylene?
It is rough and resistant to other chemicals. Polypropylene is tough, but also flexible. This makes the material to be used easily for chemical and plastic engineering experiments.
Polypropylene fabric can be translucent, but because it does not fade very easily, most people use polypropylene as dyed colored fabric.
Polypropylene’s melting point is approximately 320 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the chemicals have been bonded, they are melted and pressed through tight rollers that will make a thin fabric. This process is called extrusion and molding. Unlike cotton or other natural fibers, which are woven, polypropylene is not woven. Many people in the fabric industry refer to these types of materials as “non-woven.” Cotton fibers are typically spun into threads and woven together, but polypropylene is pressed into a fabric.
There are other finishes that can be applied to the finished fabric. Different types of finishes will produce different results. Some finishes are applied that will help the fabric accept ink better, which is better for imprinting.
Some finishes will help repel other chemicals and solutions.
What are Some Uses of Polypropylene?
The polypropylene is used in a number of different fabric styles. These non-woven fabrics usually are used to produce non-woven bags.
Most importantly, the non-woven fabric can be recycled.
