Anti-plastic directives and changing consumer tastes have opened up doors for biodegradable and natural materials.
Many countries have established relevant laws on limiting the use of plastics. In particular, the European Union has been one of the tops all over the world in terms of plastic pollution control. Up to now, 23 countries within the European Union have legislated or taken actions on SUP (Single Use Plastics) directive. In addition, the European Unions’ single use plastics directive will be set to go into effect, which has put the pressure on wipes and hygiene products manufacturing industries. These products are on the first list of products subject to regulations and labeling requirements.An reduction in plastic-based fibers will lead to increases in the use of both natural and man-made cellulosic fibers which offer benefits such as biodegradability and contribute to the goal of environmental protection and sustainable development.
Another aspect of promoting the development of biodegradable materials is consumers’ choices.Consumers always make choices about product qualities that are important to them. They pay more attention to materials that enter and touch the body. Is the product environmentally friendly? Is it safe to use on our skin? And natural materials tend to be safer and healthier. This also drives the demand for more natural materials. As nonwoven industry professional manufacturers, we use these information to chose a direction about materials and techniques in developing our products. What materials we use is one of the biggest factors will have greatly influenced that we can choose. Choosing a fiber which is eco-friendly and hypoallergenic is not only good for environment, but also helps keep persons safe and healthy.
Based on these reasons that driven by combined forces of global plastics legislation, strong consumer preferences and some other factors, demands of biodegradable fibers will be set for rapid growth in the future as the suppliers of spunlace nonwoven fabric manufacturing.
Viscose is a higher cost performance choice among all biodegradable fibers in the field of spunlace nonwoven fabric manufacturing. People may be a little unfamiliar with viscose，But because of the natural properties like absorbency, softness and skin-friendliness, viscose fibers have been playing an important role in the hygiene sector for many years, and increasing demand for environmentally friendly solutions has made them even more important. In addition to their natural properties, viscose offer flexibility to customize to the specific requirements of the special nonwoven fabric. Although a synthetic fiber, viscose offers sustainability qualities in nonwovens applications.
As the general public demands more recycled content in the nonwoven fabrics they buy, spunlace nonwoven manufacturers are looking for solutions which are sustainable. We have developed Viscose Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric, Wood pulp Viscose Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric, Cotton Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric, Lyocell Spunlace Nonwoven Fabri, Cupra Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric, Bamboo Fiber Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric and other nonwoven fabrics by using these biodegradable fibers.
As an excellent biodegradable material, viscose is used in the production of Viscose Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric and Wood Pulp Viscose Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric. Viscose Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric is made of 100% viscose. Because of its high liquid absorption, low lint, skin-friendly, and two uses in dry and wet , it is widely used in wet wipes, facial masks and facial wash towels. Wood pulp Viscose Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric is made of wood pulp and viscose. It also has the characteristics of high liquid absorption, soft hand feeling, solvent resistance and biodegradability, which can be used for wet wipes, facial wash towels, dry hair towels, bath towels , cleaning wipes and other fields. In addition, Cotton Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric, Lyocell Spunlace Nonwoven Fabri, Cupra Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric and Bamboo Fiber Spunlace Nonwoven Fabric also have unique and excellent characteristics. Customers can choose the product according to their needs.
We believe that degradability is an important path for spunlace nonwoven fabrics in the future, and we will continue to study in the direction of sustainable development.
