What’s Melt Blown؟

Melt blown is the name of a fabric type with an impenetrable property.

This fabric has filtering properties and is the best product to protect your health and society. The filtering property prevents germs and contaminated particles in the air from entering your respiratory tract.

This amazing fabric is specially produced by certain companies. Then, it is transferred to medical equipment stores. This product is sent from production centers to all provinces of the country. The import and export of Melt Blown fabric is also very active and prosperous.

The price of this product is relative and different everywhere. Melon fabric quality is different from that of other productions. However, each piece of this fabric costs around 350 to 400 thousand Tomans.

The filtering property of fabric is due to the lack of texture. This fabric is used in making masks because of this feature. In this epidemic of the deadly coronavirus, we must be careful when choosing a standard mask.

A standard mask must have certain characteristics. Stay with us to get more information about this product.

This term refers to masks that have a layer of melt-blown fabric in their structure. In general, different masks used for medical, chemical, etc., have different layers. Each of these layers has a task in the mask, and one of these layers acts as a filter. The role of the filter layer of the mask is very important, and for this reason, you should pay a lot of attention to this point when buying a mask.

Masks with the help of melt-blown fabric as their filter layer are considered one of the best types of masks and are well resistant to pollution and germs. In the following, we will introduce you to the features of this unique fabric and how it is produced.

What is Melt Blown fabric?

This type of fabric is a non-woven fabric. You may be interested to know that not all fabrics are produced in the common way you know, i.e., woven. In traditional fabric production, the raw material, which has been cotton for a long time, is made into thread, and then these threads are woven together to create the fabric. However, in melt-blown technology, raw polymer materials, which are generally made of polypropylene, are linked in a chemical, mechanical, or thermal process and create a network structure like fabric. For this reason, these types of fabrics, or the fabrics of Melt Blown, have special properties and characteristics, including:

  • High absorption
    Resistance to microbes
    Appropriate softness and stretch
    high power
    Flame resistance
    Fluid repellency
    Appropriate resilience

What are the characteristics of a standard mask?

Melt Blown is an impermeable fabric that prevents the spread of pollution and infection. It should be sewn as a mask so that air does not leak from its side.

Therefore, as we mentioned, one of the features of a standard mask is its proper stitching. Another feature of a standard mask is that it does not make breathing difficult for the user. In addition to preventing the spread of disease, it does not make breathing difficult for the user.

What are the characteristics of Melt Blown fabric?

In addition to being impenetrable, Melt Blown is decomposable and recyclable. Therefore, this product is in sync with nature and does not harm the environment. Another good feature of this product is the flexibility and softness of this fabric.

Since there is a need to use more and more masks nowadays, the mask’s fabric should be soft and delicate. If the mask fabric is rough, the consumer can keep it on his face briefly.

These fabrics are waterproof, and if you hold a mask made of Melt Blown fabric under the tap, water will not penetrate it.

The waterproof feature makes distinguishing a standard mask from a non-standard one easy. A mask whose main layer is Melt Blown does not get wet and does not leave traces of moisture in it.

This fabric can pass light. The light passes through it and is seen inside the mask as a halo of light.

In addition to the features mentioned above, you should know that Melt Blown fabric is vulnerable to all disinfectants. If this cloth comes in contact with alcohol or any other antiseptic liquid, it will lose its impermeability.

The benefits of using Melt Blown fabric in masks

Melt Blown has countless advantages that make it popular, and many factories use it to produce their products.

  • The coloring of the Blown is very diverse. No matter what kind of product you intend to produce, you will find Melt Blown fabric that matches the same color.
  • Melt Blown is light and does not add extra weight to the products. This issue becomes more important in the case of masks because if you use a mask on your face, you won’t feel heavy.
  • A mask with a layer of melt-blown is more resistant to germs and viruses, reducing the risk of contracting dangerous diseases such as coronavirus.
  • You can breathe more easily with the help of the melt-blown layer. In addition to preventing the entry of germs, this fabric makes breathing better.
  • Despite its thinness and lightness, this will add acceptable resistance to the mask. If this fabric is placed in the middle layer of the mask, it will improve its strength and prevent it from deteriorating quickly.

Why melt-blown fabrics are impermeable
؟

To answer this question, it is enough to talk about the size of the filaments of these types of fabrics. As we said, there is no interweaving in the fabric of blown. The filaments in the structure of this type of fabric have a size of about one to five microns. With this account, it is obvious that they work well against small particles, like a very strong filter.

A simple overview of the melt-blown process

You’ve probably wondered how to create a fabric-like texture without intertwining the warp and weft. In this section, we will briefly review the production process of this fabric so that you can get to know the concept of non-woven fabric more clearly.

The extruder is the main device in the melt-blown process, which turns polymer granules into molten polymer. Next, the air with high acceleration drives the molten polymer toward a mold with very small holes. In this way, the molten polymer becomes very fine fibers that come out from the other side of the mold; at a short distance, these fibers sit on the surface in front of them, and by creating network links like a spider’s web, they form a fabric texture.
This is the simplest definition of this process. For a better understanding, consider the wool production process, where the molten sugar turns into delicate and interwoven threads with the airflow.

The polymer used in the melt-blown process

At the beginning of the text, it was mentioned that non-woven fabrics are usually polypropylene. This is not the only polymer that can undergo this process, but it can be one of the best choices. In general, the lower the molecular weight of the polymer, the finer and softer the Mellat Balon textiles will be. Therefore, choosing the type of polymer depends on the type of subsequent application. However, polymers such as polyethylene are not suitable for this process. Because they have high elasticity, polystyrene or polycarbonate are excellent options for producing soft melt-blown fabric.

What are the characteristics of Melt blown masks?

Undoubtedly, masks with a layer of non-woven fabric as a filter have unique features compared to other normal masks, which is why they are more popular. These features will be mentioned below:

  • This type of mask is very resistant to various germs and viruses.
    They don’t get wet or let water pass through their tissue.
    They are also highly resistant to chemical substances and particles.
    While acting as a strong barrier against particles, pollution, and germs, they also allow clean air to pass through them.

Is the only use of Melt Blown fabric to produce masks?

Although this type of fabric is very important in the production of medical masks, it does not mean that its use is limited to the production of masks. Especially because of its very good filtration properties, it is used in various industries and fields, some of which will be mentioned below:

  • As mentioned earlier, Melt Blown fabric is flame-resistant and considered thermal insulation. For this reason, it is used in special clothes that resist heat.
    The design and construction of these fabrics allow them to absorb oil well. For this reason, they are used as oil absorbers in various fields of work.
  • Melt Blown is also used to produce health products for women and older people.
    Disposable and hygienic clothing and packaging are required in hospitals and medical uses and are often produced from melt-blown fabrics.
    The special melt-blown process also produces PSBs with unique features.
  • It is interesting to know that non-woven textiles are also used in electronics. For example, in the capacitor structure, they act as insulators.

Applications of Melt Blown

Melt Blown fabric is widely used in mask production, but its entire use is not limited to this issue.

  • Since the melt-blown fabric is thermal insulation, it may be used to produce heat-resistant clothes.
    Melt Blown absorbs oil, so when a fabric with this characteristic is needed to produce a garment or product, they use Melt Blown.
    Melt Blown may be used to produce health products for older people and women.
    It is used to produce disposable hospital clothes.

How to recognize the melt blown layers

If you prefer to check the presence of the Melt Blown layer on the mask yourself, there are a few ways by which you can be sure of the presence or absence of the Melt Blown layer.

  • Using Candles

The easiest way to create a blown layer is to use a candle. First, put the mask on your face and light a candle, then try to extinguish the candle. If you turn off the candle despite the mask, that mask does not have the Melt Blown layer, but if the candle does not change, the layer has been used.

  • Separation of different mask layers

In another way, you can cut the two sides of the mask with scissors and separate its layers. Place the middle layer of the mask on heat to notice its reaction. If that layer caught fire quickly, the mask you bought is not standard, but if instead of catching fire, there is a change in its texture.

  • No water passage

One of the characteristics of Melt Blown fabric is that it will not allow water to pass through; You can use this feature to test it. Pour water on the mask; if the water passes through its middle layer, you will conclude that the mask does not have this layer, but if it shows resistance, it is probably equipped with this layer. In addition, this layer should not be wet. This means that even if exposed to water, no moisture should be left on it.

  • Tissue Paper

First, pour paper napkins into small particles on the table. Grab the sides of the mask and bring it close to these particles with your two hands. If the shrunk pieces of paper tissue stick to the mask, then the layer of Melt Blown has been used in its structure.

  • Using Light

It would help if you had a dark environment for this test. Use a flashlight or eye light and hold the mask a few centimeters away. If the light source on the other side of the mask is not detectable, there is a balloon layer, but if you can see the light source well, you probably bought a non-standard mask.
