What is the difference between fiberglass cloth and non-woven fabric?


Glass fiber cloth and non-woven fabric are two kinds of special cloths which are widely used in industrial production and life in China. Their appearances have many similarities, and their use can sometimes be replaced by each other. Therefore, many people often use two kinds of cloths. Blurry, but these two kinds of cloth are not the same thing, they are fundamentally different.

Glass fiber cloth is made of glass fiber as raw material, and long glass fiber is weaved in a crisscross pattern. The exact name of the non-woven fabric mainly used for high temperature air filtration should be non-woven fabric, or non-woven fabric. Because it is a fabric that does not require spinning woven fabric, the woven short fibers or filaments are oriented or randomly arranged to form a web structure, which is then reinforced by mechanical, thermal bonding or chemical methods.

Nonwoven fabric breaks through the traditional textile principle, and has the characteristics of short process flow, fast production speed, high output, low cost, wide application and many raw materials.

Non-woven fabrics have many advantages:
2. Filterability
3. Insulation
4. Water absorption
5. Water resistance
6. Flexibility
7. Not unkempt
8. Feel good and soft
9. Lightweight
10. Flexible and recoverable
11. No fabric orientation
12. High productivity and fast production compared with textile fabrics
13. Low price, mass production, etc.
weakness is:
1. Poor strength and durability compared to woven fabric
2. Can't be washed like other fabrics
3. The fibers are arranged in a certain direction, so they are easily split from a right angle direction and the like.
Glass fiber is commonly used as a reinforcing material in composite materials, electrical insulating materials, thermal insulation materials, circuit boards and the like in various fields of the national economy. When fireplace sealing rope is used as a reinforcing material for reinforced plastics, it is characterized by high tensile strength.
