ABSTRACT

The functional non-woven fabrics have been applied in various industry fields, such as clothing, hygiene, environment, medical and so forth. The functional non-woven fabrics were manufactured by meltblown and finishing processes. These functional non-woven fabrics were based on 5wt% masterbatch using 2,000ppm nano-silver resin composite. Silver is one of the most universal antimicrobial substances. Nano-technology enables us to expand the surface area of silver particles markedly. Silver nano particles were successfully produced less than 50nm in size. The functional non-woven fabrics including nano-silver particles showed excellent antibacterial activities against Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 6538) and Klebsieila pneumoniae (ATCC 4352). From the results, functional non-woven fabrics including silver nano particels probably will be available as a good and safe antibiotic alternative, such as mask medium filter, water purifier filter, hygiene wet tissues, marine products pad and so forth.
