    washable webs are formed by non-woven fibres which are bonded to form a web eg chux clothes you use in washing up. Go to the Smith Family web site they do alot of this type of recycling.

    1/ Fabric: Washable Webs

    State the fibre, yarn, fabric technique (where applicable) and the specific end use.

    Washable webs refer to fabrics that have been manufactured from non-woven sources. (Chapter 9?)
    To create washable webs, webs of synthetic fibres are bonded together with heat or adhesive. The result is a cheap fabric, but one that is not as strong as a woven or knitted fabric. Washable webs are easy to sew, crease-resistant, don’t fray and are stable to washing or dry cleaning.
    End uses of washable webs include the following
    Apparel - interlinings, interfacings, clothing and insulation, bra and shoulder padding, handbag and show components.
    Non-apparel - nappies, blankets, industrial filters, teabag covers, Chux super wipes and environment bags (green bags).
    Specialised apparel - medical textiles, surgical equipment, masks, gowns, head coverings and feet covers
    Army apparel - uniforms, equipment, parachutes, tents, duffel bags, tarps and shelters.

    Discuss the enhanced performance of the textile.

    Washable webs enhance performance of fabric and end-product because of the following qualities, giving them enhanced performance potential.
    They are light to heavy in weight and can be engineered for specific end-uses, they do not fray and they are durable as well as abrasion resistant and highly absorbed.

    Evaluate the impact of the construction and time saving advances of the machinery.

    Explain the advantages and disadvantages to the
    consumer
    manufacturer
    employee
    environment
    Below shows information the advantages and disadvantages of how the technology of washable webs impacts on the consumer and society, manufactures, employees and the environment.

    IMPACT ON CONSUMER

    Advantages
    low cost
    doesn’t fray
    crease resistant
    stable to washing and dry cleaning

    Disadvantages
    Not lifelong, mostly single or limited use products
    Not as strong as knitted or woven technology developments attempt to compete with this downfall.

    IMPACT ON MANUFACTURER

    Advantages
    Cheap to produce
    Can be combined with many fibres to create “super fabrics”- medical membranes impermeable to blood and other bodily fluids, many military applications

    Disadvantages
    Low durability
    More fabric work
    More production time


    IMPACT ON EMPLOYEE

    Advantages
    Work easier from new technology, less labor-intensive work needed to produce man-made fibres than needed for natural fibres
    CAD and CAM means work rates are faster and easier as well as less manual felting

    Disadvantages
    Process may use CAD and CAM technology rather than labour

    IMPACTS ON THE ENVIRONMENT

    Advantages
    Non-woven bags last longer than normal plastic bags and have recently almost replaced the common plastic bag

    Disadvantages
    Waste product and landfill
    Must take into account waste and disposal of medical textiles


    Analyse the impact the innovation has on society and the environment.
