US Fabrics offers a line of spunbond, nonwoven geotextiles in addition to our needle punched, nonwoven geotextiles. Spunbonding is one of the most popular methods of producing nonwoven fabrics. The first spunbonded, polypropylene fabrics were introduced in the 1960's. Considerable advances in the technology have been made since its initial introduction. Spunbond fabrics are used in the carpet, furniture, medical and geotextile industries.
The most successful manufacturer of these products is Typar®. As a result, all manufacturer's spunbond products are often referred to as "Typar" as a group. US Fabrics SF line of spunbond geotextiles are offered as equivalents to the Typar® product line.
The spunbond process is considered the fastest manufacturing method for nonwoven fabrics. As a result, spunbonding is considered to be more economical than other manufacturing methods such as needle punching staple fiber. Spunbond, nonwoven geotextiles are known for their superior tensile strengths per weight. The spunbonded process results in excellent fiber distribution leading to very uniform weights and physical properties.
