Paper Title:
Manufacturing Technique and Physical Properties of Environment-Protective Composite Nonwoven Fabrics
  Abstract

Rapid technical advancement threatens the earth ecology, driving people by degrees to develop green energy and green products. Tencel® fiber uses natural fibers. Products made of Tencel® fiber could be biodegraded, which solves the problems for the increasing consumptions of disposable nonwoven product. In this research, Tencel® fiber, polylactic acid (PLA) fiber, and high absorbent fiber (HAF) were used to produce Tencel®/PLA/HAF composite nonwoven fabrics. Among the nonwoven processing parameters, to increase the Tencel® fiber content helped heighten the water absorbency. When there were 80 wt% Tencel® fibers, the basis weight was 100 g/m2 and the needle-punching density was 300 needle/cm2, the Tencel®/PLA/HAF composite nonwoven fabric exhibited the optimum water absorbency in cross machine direction (CD), which was 5.0 cm. The air permeability of the Tencel®/PLA/HAF composite nonwoven fabrics reached 164.4 cm3/cm2/s when the basis weight was 100 g/m2 and the needle-punching density was 300 needle/cm2
