What is PP Spunbond Fabric ?
Technically PP =Polypropylene is a plastic noted for its light weight, being less dense than water; it is a polymer of propylene. It resists moisture, oils, and solvents. Since its melting point is 121°C (250°F), it is used in the manufacture of objects that are sterilized in the course of their use. Polypropylene is also used to make textiles, ropes that float, packaging material, and luggage.

NB : PE =widely used plastic. It is a polymer of ethylene, and is produced at high pressures and temperatures in the presence of any one of several catalysts, depending on the desired properties for the finished product. Polyethylene is resistant to water, acids, alkalizes, and most solvents. Its many applications include films or sheets for packaging, shower curtains, unbreakable bottles, pipes, pails, drinking glasses, and insulation for wire and cable. Worst biodegradability than PP.

Conclusion: in fact, PP and PE are very similar, they are both plastic. For European markets, we usually order PP woven (import tax related issues). No matter PP or PE, if we are required “woven” bag, there are the same kind of bags. But non-woven material (much lighter) is totally different from “woven”.


Since recent years, it tends to replace the traditional existing textiles, fabric and paper for some obvious reasons. The main asset of  Non woven polypropylene (P.P.) fabric is that it is  made of spun bond polypropylene which can be recycled, naturally decomposes ( untreated non woven fabric can decompose in the outside within a few months only..) and completely incinerates without any production of poisonous pollutants (does not pollute directly or indirectly the environments,..

It does not contain any harmful substances itself and does not require the use of poisonous gaz, wasted oil or effluents.


Non woven P.P fabric carries a lot of useful properties:
- Excellent softness
- Anti bacteria
- water resistance (even repellence with waterproofing treatment t,
- Air permeability,
- Fire resistance,
- high level of tensile strength
- high elongation rate
- no allergies to human bodies
- relatively cheap to produce.

What are the possible applications of PP Spunbond Fabric?
it can be applied to manufacturing a useful list of products related to promotional needs or storage and packaging (bags),Medical and hygiene (disposable products), protective equipments and items (disposable bed sheets), agricultural UV protective films, …

Some of our partner factories enjoy the ability to really make the non woven fabric for years and as well got the expertise on the same site to fabricate any kind of finished products. We can thus QC the entire process from start to finish.

Environnementaly Friendly?
If you are concerned about our world running out of resources, the idea of recycling and using such products as non woven P.P. can go a long way for the concept of environmentally friendly products and can be expanded when you choose to use non woven P.P. fabric.

Due to our daily habits and consumption behaviors our natural resources and our environment have been challenged despite implementation of new technologies and improved living standards. It leads nowadays to the production of a huge amounts of disposable products every day.


The growth of non-woven fabrics and the various  prospective such material can offer for the future is now seen as an new possible approach to deal with contemporary environmental concerns. Non-woven products are predicted to become a much larger market in the future. Ecovista Manufacturing Group wished to be on the forefront of this new industry and associated with this image.



Non woven fabrics got environmental benefits over other traditional fabrics and papers in regards to mainly its production process and its recycling benefits due to natural degrading properties and the recycle process for its production. Cheap, Non woven is very competitive with other fabrics (often cheaper than paper or plastic bag)  and is very durable with all the attribute of woven fabrics as mentioned above ( softness, air permeability, dehumidifying, cushioning, resilience, good light weight, ability to repel water and to evaporate water, resistance to mold and insect., etc..)

However, we always emphasize to our clients that any added material or treatment to a basic PP fabric may very often minimize this environmentally friendly assets.


What are the existing treatments for spun bond Fabric?

Various add –on treatment can be added to the PP fabric such as:
-Flame retardency ( for Airplanes, Hotels designated products..)
-Antibacterial (medical use products
-Florescent treatment (caution, promotion and advertising items)



-Compounded treatments ( adding layers of others fabric for various purpose such as Aluminum film, PE film, Eva film, PVC, Absorbent paper, CPP film.. etc.. )
-Anti Mildew treatment ( storage purpose)
Lamination treatment for offset printing,

We usually try to minimize our offers of products requiring such treatments as it often enhance the utilizations of the products at the expense of its recycling or environmental assets.

What are the different process used in the construction of PP items ?

The most common is of course standard sewing/stitching process but we can, ultrasonic sewing, thermal bounding, use heat sealing with tape, glue....
