What is SMS Nonwoven Fabric?
“SMS” stands for spunbond meltblown spunbond. SMS fabric is a type of nonwoven fabric that combines spunbond and meltblown fabrics.
SMS material or SMS nonwoven fabric is a kind of moisture repelling nonwoven SMS fabric that has great water-repelling capabilities. This is why manufacturers choose to use SMS material in things like face masks, parts of baby diapers, sanitary napkins, and janitorial coveralls. It’s also used for caps, gowns, beddings, and other hospital accessories.
Why Combine Spunbond with Meltblown?
Spunbond polypropylene is a material that has great durability and strength, no matter if it’s wet or dry. It’s very resistant to fraying and is difficult to unravel, plus it barely absorbs any moisture if it becomes wet.
Meltblown, on the other hand, is softer and more pliable than spun-bond polypropylene. Their main advantage is their web strength, which is why they’re usually combined with other nonwoven fibers. While spun bond polypropylene has its advantages, it can feel stiff and uncomfortable when it’s put in everyday applications such as coveralls.
Since meltblown has a webbed structure and is softer, when the fabric combines these two nonwoven fibers, it would be moisture repelling nonwoven provides the wearer with water resistance while still retaining comfort. It’s also breathable, so even if you’re covered from head to toe (as with coveralls), your comfort won’t be compromised.
Applications for SMS Non Woven Material
As water or moisture repelling nonwoven fabric, SMS non woven material could be used in a number of industries where people need to block off fluids or other wet substances. Some areas that utilize SMS material’s benefits used are:
