Scrims reinforce nonwovens
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.
