What are Spunlace nonwovens?


Spunlace nonwovens are created by hydroentanglement. This process involves entangling loose fibers with high-pressure water jets to effectively interlink the fibers. It is commonly used in automotive applications, as this process results in spunlace nonwovens having excellent moldability, particularly in headliner, pillar, and handle pull out areas.

Our spunlace nonwovens are available with a wide range of characteristics such as cross lapped, parallel lapped, embossed, aperture, and printed. Cross lapped spunlace nonwovens offer unidirectional strength, whereas parallel spunlace offers superior strength in the machine direction and excellent elongation in the cross direction. Fibers such as polyester, viscose, woodpulp, cellulose, bamboo, and cotton are commonly used to manufacture spunlace nonwovens.

Other Characteristics of Spunlace nonwovens include:

  • Soft hand

  • Excellent drapability

  • High strength

  • Excellent moldability

  • Absorbent

Nolar Industries offers spunlace nonwovens in various weights, widths, and colors.
