Nonwovens are used for a wide variety of purposes, including protection, filtration, drainage and separation.
The nonwovens take the form of needle-punched fabrics that are able to serve wide-ranging functions, such as protection, filtration, drainage and separation. The textile products are made of short single fibres, which - unlike wovens - are formed into randomly oriented layers. They are particularly notable for their high stretch resistance. Common applications include construction, landscaping, crafts and trades, and automotive components.

Nonwovens are extremely versatile and, subject to selection of the appropriate polymer type and weight per unit area, can cater for a wide range of applications The particular merits of needle-punched nonwovens include their strength and robustness.
