Senthil Chinnasami, Lohit Shastri, S.S. Ramkumar, and Mac McLean


H1 needlepunching technology is one of the modern developments in dry laid nonwoven technologies. The needle zone in the H1 technology is not flat as in the case of conventional needle loom. The contoured zone needlepunching results in oblique angled needle penetration. H1 needlepunching technology has higher efficiency and high productivity. Texas Tech University is the first academic facility in the US to house the modern needle loom. This technology has been effectively used to develop cotton blended nonwoven webs. This paper elaborates the results from the cotton needlepunching study.
