INDA Offers Free Nonwovens Video, Glossary

The Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry (INDA), Cary, N.C., is offering at no charge via its website two educational resources to nonwovens companies and their customers.

"Nonwovens! What Are They?" is an eight-minute video covering nonwovens basics including manufacturing process such as airlaid, drylaid, wetlaid, needlepunch, spunlace/hydroentangled, spunbond and meltblown; as well as end-use applications including aerospace, apparel, automotives, construction, electronics, filtration, geotextiles, healthcare, home furnishings, hygiene, protective apparel and wipes.

The 69-page INDA Nonwovens Glossary is an easy-to-understand, comprehensive dictionary containing definitions and illustrations of nonwovens technologies.

"Nonwovens reach into so many applications and end-uses. We want to make our educational resources available to people in other industries who will benefit from our products," said Rory Holmes, president, INDA. "In addition, this video and the Nonwovens Glossary are an invaluable resource for companies within our business to educate their own employees."
