Free TAPPI Webinar – Fibers for Nonwovens Applications

TAPPI’s Nonwovens Division (NET) presents a free webinar on January 10 at 11:00 a.m. EST called Fibers for Nonwovens Applications.

From moisture absorption and chemical reactivity to temperature resistance and costs, fibers range in a variety of ways that can be used in nonwovens applications. This webinar will discuss the various fibers used in nonwoven fabrics, their properties as well as several of their applications, and some of the methods used to make them into nonwoven fabrics.

This introductory webinar is tailored for beginners in mind, or for those who want to learn more about nonwovens. By the end of the presentation, attendees will become familiar with:

  • Fibers used in nonwovens and other textile industries
  • Some of the terminology used to describe fibers
  • Important fiber properties

Based in Philadelphia, Dr. Brian George, Associate Professor of Engineering and Director of Nonwovens Labs and Graduate Engineering Programs at Thomas Jefferson University, will guide you through this presentation. He earned his Bachelor of Textile Science and a PhD in Fiber & Polymer Science, both at NC State University (1989-1999). Over the past two decades, Dr. George has taught classes in nonwovens, testing of textiles, various aspects of textile production and characterization, and materials science. His research has focused primarily on nonwovens and the utilization of non-traditional materials in textile applications. Dr. George is also a frequent presenter at TAPPI’s annual innovative nonwovens conference, NETInc, which is co-located for the first time with TissueCon 2020 on September 28-October 2, in Atlanta, GA.
