SMS (Spunbond + Meltblown + Spunbond) and SMMS
This is a high coverage nonwoven fabric. Its low weight, high longitudinal and transversal strength and soft feel make it suitable for use in the medical and hygiene industry. It can be given special treatments to give it certain properties (hydrophilic, anti-bacterial, oil-repellent, alcohol-repellent and blood-repellent).
