INWA Member Gathering 2023

BULETIN TEKSTIL.COM/ Jakarta – The term INWA (Indonesian Nonwoven Association) may be unfamiliar to some members of the general public, but not to those involved in the textile sector. INWA is an Indonesian forum or organization that can address the demands of nonwovens entrepreneurs.

Non-woven fabrics have been around for a long time. Wet wipes, masks, and bandages are among the everyday items manufactured with non-woven materials. Non-woven or non-woven fabric is a cloth-like substance. In other fabrics, the fiber is spun into yarn first. Non-woven fabrics, on the other hand, are created from short and long threads that are linked together through a variety of chemical and mechanical processes.

The material is called non-woven since it is not sewn like traditional fabrics. Polypropylene fiber is a typical fiber used in the production of non-woven fabrics.

There are many uses for nonwoven fabrics, including:

  • Medical and health world: surgical gowns, medical masks, hand towels, gloves, plasters, wound dressings, surgical drapes and covers, and shoe covers.
  • Household supplies: kitchen tissue, facial tissue, kitchen tissue, mops, table cloths, tablecloths, bath mats, blankets, and disposable bath/face towels.
  • Personal items: baby diapers, feminine hygiene kits, sanitary napkins and tampons.
  • Food and pharmaceutical industry: tea bags, coffee bags and pharmaceutical filters.
  • Manufacturing industry: PPE, tissues, dusters, shoe cleaning cloths, up to first and second class industrial wipes.
  • Coating material: book cover or outer coating for PVC products.
  • Everyday wear: hat, shoe sole and tote bag.
