After a successful opening and kick-off course (Introduction to Global Filtration Market) last Tuesday, the second-course Nonwovens in Filtration was very informative and well delivered this morning by Dr. Gajanan S. Bhat, Georgia Athletic Association Professor of Fibers and Textiles, Head of Department of Textiles, Merchandising and Interiors, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA. It provided an overall understanding as to what nonwovens are, how they are different from other fabrics, and how they are made. Dr. Bhat skillfully delivered the key concepts of a full semester of a graduate course on nonwovens within 2 hours and answered the questions from the participants at the end. The topics of this morning included (i) Nonwoven products and markets; (ii) Polymers and fibers used in nonwovens; (iii) Nonwoven production – web formation and Bonding; (iv) Dry-laid and Wet-laid formation of webs; (v) Direct web formation from polymers; (vi) Web bonding technologies – mechanical, thermal and chemical; (vii) Finishing of nonwovens, and (viii) Nonwovens testing and characterization. Advantages and disadvantages of these processes, as well as criteria for selecting the raw materials and processes appropriate for products based on the application were discussed.
