The widespread introduction of non-woven fabrics into the public's view was due to the time when disposable masks were in short supply, and the main material of disposable masks was medical non-woven fabrics. The non-woven fabrics of non-woven fabric manufacturers can be divided into two main categories, one is ordinary non-woven fabric, and the other is a medical non-woven fabric. Because it is mainly used for medical treatment, it has strict requirements on quality. In addition, what are the differences between the two?
Medical non-woven fabric
1. Antibacterial ability
Since it is a medical non-woven fabric, the primary criterion is antibacterial ability. Generally, the summer three-layer melt-blown layer structure is used. The ordinary medical non-woven fabric uses a single-layer melt-blown layer structure. Comparing the two, it must be a three-layer structure. Stronger antibacterial ability. As for non-medical ordinary non-woven fabrics, since there is no meltblown layer, it does not have the antibacterial ability.
2. Applicable to a variety of sterilization methods
Since it has antibacterial ability, it also needs the corresponding sterilization ability. High-quality medical non-woven fabrics can be applied to a variety of sterilization methods. The common three sterilization methods are pressure steam, ethylene oxide, and hydrogen peroxide plasma. However, ordinary non-medical non-woven fabrics cannot be applied to multiple sterilization methods.
3. Quality control
Medical non-woven fabrics need to pass the certification of the relevant product quality control system, and there are strict standards and requirements for each step of the product in the production process.
The main differences between medical non-woven fabrics and ordinary non-woven fabrics are mainly reflected in these aspects. Both have their own uses and characteristics. In use, you only need to choose the correct one according to your needs.
