Abstract

Three-dimensional (3-D) nonwoven fabrics are high loft materials that have applications in many industries such as automotive, building, agriculture, filtration, medical, and the bedding/furniture/seating, just to name a few. One of the objectives of using 3-D nonwoven fabrics is to replace foam, neoprene, rubber, and other such compounds that lack thermo-physiological comfort and desirable properties such as recyclability, flame retordancy, and sustainability. This chapter discusses the materials, processes, properties, and the application areas of 3-D nonwoven fabrics available on the market today. A wide range of technologies are covered, which demonstrate that 3-D nonwoven fabrics markets will expand further, as their unique features and characteristics are recognised globally
