PLA Nonwoven Fabrics

Polylactic acid or PLA has become one of the most popular materials due to it being produced economically from 100% renewable resources. Its antibacterial and flame retardant qualities make it great for many applications and industries such as apparel, furniture, medical materials, 3D printing, agricultural, and more.

Benefits of PLA Nonwoven Fabrics

  • Environmentally friendly
    PLA is 100% renewable, biodegradable, and non-toxic. When burned or buried in soil, it does not produce toxic gas, rather it decomposes completely into carbon dioxide and water which will not pollute the environment. PLA nonwovens are made from PLA resin or fibers which are produced from bioplastics derived from natural sources like starch and sugar.
  • Strong yet soft like traditional nonwovens
    PLA fibers are very durable due to its 95% crimp resilience which is better than any other chemical fiber on the market. While being very strong, this textile remains soft to the touch making it comfortable yet long-lasting. Great Lakes Filters can develop fabrics to mimic traditional nonwovens and replace them with a sustainable PLA nonwoven fabric.
