PRODUCT INFORMATION & BENEFITS
WHAT IS POLYPROPYLENE NON WOVEN MATERIAL
PP Non Woven Material is a 100% recyclable fabric defined as a web of polypropylene fibres bonded together by entangling the fibre or filaments mechanically, thermally or chemically. They are flat, porous sheets that are made directly from separate fibres. They are not made by weaving or knitting and do not require converting of fibres to yarn. PP Non Woven is a versatile environmentally friendly product due to the low energy requirements during the manufacturing process that can be used in numerous applications because of its strong and extremely lightweight characteristics while lending to being an easy recyclable product with natural degrading properties.FEATURES AND BENIFITS OF PP NON WOVEN BAGS
100% RECYCLABLE – One of the major benefits of PP Non Woven Bags is that they are recyclable. This is due to the fact that these bags are made from 100 % polypropylene and doesn’t contain any other unrecyclable materials such as the case of the polypropylene green bags.
100% DEGRADABLE – Due to the chemical & physical structure of the material the product breaks down naturally. Biodegradable is a term that is loosely used in the industry and although PP Non Woven bags aren’t truly biodegradable they break down into small fibres when exposed to the elements such as photo degradation (degradation through light)
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY – Non Woven polypropylene bags promote a greener earth because they are reusable, easy to clean, recyclable, and can be made from recycled products. These bags can be quickly wiped clean, and some of them are machine washable in cold water if they are drip dried. PP Non Woven Bags are made from Type-5 recyclable plastic. Reusing and recycling them could save many standard plastic bags from sitting in a landfill.
