Chemical bonding remains popular because of the variety of adhesive binders available and the broad variety of final properties that can be engineered in nonwoven fabrics. This chapter explores the chemical composition and properties of common binder systems used by the nonwovens industry and the considerations involved in their selection. The mechanisms of chemical bonding are explored, as well as the process technologies that are typically employed to apply binders during nonwoven fabric production.
