The nonwovens of Gunold GmbH are usually used for embroidery, but currently they are really popular for the production of face masks. Both tear-away nonwovens and cut-away nonwovens in different weights are used.
The tear-away nonwovens are thin, hardly show at all and are ideal for inserting into the masks to retain the droplets,” explains Marketing Manager Stephan Gunold. “The cut-away nonwovens are perfect when they’re to be sewn into the mask.” In addition, the effect fabrics, which Gunold also offers in its range of products, are currently being used as mask fabrics. Among the tear-away nonwovens, the 1640 and 1650 weights are particularly popular.
For cutting nonwovens, the weights 2040 and 2055 are in demand. To prevent the nonwoven from warping when worn, Gunold recommends a cutting nonwoven for ironing-on, such as the 1975B.
