Meltblown Nonwoven Production Technology

The production of Meltblown nonwovens is an advanced process based on the meltblowing extrusion technique. It involves melting a thermoplastic polymer, most commonly polypropylene, and pushing it through fine nozzles. Simultaneously, with the use of high-velocity air streams, the molten polymer is drawn into fine fibers, which lay down on a collecting mesh and bond together to form a nonwoven fabric structure. This process allows for the production of extremely fine fibers, characterized by a large surface area relative to their volume, offering excellent filtration properties.


Polymer fibers forming the structure of the nonwoven fabric are laid on the collecting mesh.

Filtration Redefined: From Rolbatch to Leading Solutions in Filtration Technology Properties and Applications of Meltblown Nonwovens

Finished Meltblown nonwovens are distinguished by a unique microstructure of fibers, enabling excellent particle filtration. These properties mean that they find wide application not only in industrial filtration and technical applications but also in the automotive industry, construction, agriculture, and environmental protection.
