||Today it is almost
impossible to imagine a world without nonwovens: nappies, throwaway cloths, filtration
media or building materials - many of these may be made from or under the use of
nonwovens. Laid scrims may help to prolong the durability of nonwoven products
considerably by reducing the wear and tear of such products through mechanical stress.
Scrims may be laminated during or after production of a nonwoven. Depending on the
manufacturing process scrims will be placed between two or more layers of fibres and
bonded with these in line. Whilst many nonwovens only provide a low stability and
stiffness of their own, these properties may be improved considerably by the use of glass
or polyester scrims.
