Spunbond nonwoven refers to porous flat sheets and fabrics like materials, made from molten plastic or plastic films or long fibers bounded together by hot-press. They are different from other fibers, as they are not made by knitting or weaving and they do not require conversion of fibers into yarn. Bonding is applied to raw material, which is thermoplastic in nature, such as polypropylene, polyesters, etc. Spunbond nonwoven have various properties, such as they are resistant to heat and chemical, porous, burst strength, elongation to break, and have gram per square meter (GSM) range from 10 to 150.
