Title (EN) EXTENSIBLE NONWOVEN FABRIC
(FR) NON-TISSE EXTENSIBLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to a nonwoven fabric, and more specifically, to a durable extensible nonwoven fabric comprising a hydroentangled fibrous blend of non-activated fusible fibers and non-fusible fibers, wherein said nonwoven fabric is subjected to compaction at an elevated temperature thereby activating said fusible fibers to bond with the surrounding fibrous composition and rendering said nonwoven fabric suitable for use in medical applications, such as stockings and wraps.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un non-tissé, et plus particulièrement un non-tissé extensible à longévité importante comprenant un mélange fibreux hydro-enchevêtré de fibres fusibles non activées et de fibres non fusibles, ledit non-tissé étant soumis à un compactage à température élevée, ce qui permet l'activation desdites fibres fusibles pour provoquer la liaison avec la composition fibreuse environnante et rendre ledit non-tissé compatible à des applications médicales telles que les bas et les bandages.
