Indoor air quality is listed as one of the EPA’s top five risks to public health. According to the American Thoracic Society, respiratory problems like asthma, COPD, lung cancer and sleep apnea affect millions of Americans. One of the most important ways to improve air quality is through air filtration systems. According to a Nonwovens Industry article by Tony Fedel, there are a few benefits to consider when determining why synthetic nonwoven fabrics may be best for use in your air filtration products.

1.   Nonwoven fabrics can work mechanically and with electrostatic charges.  Unlike non-synthethic fabrics that capture particles via straining or by forcing the particles to collide and attach to the media, nonwoven fabrics can also be electrostatically charged which will increase the efficiency of the filtration without impeding airflow.
