Abstract:

The present study deals with the development of nonwoven material using needle punching technique from Ficus glomerata fibres. The fibres used for development of nonwoven material were obtained from retting of Ficus glomerata stems and then scoured by using sodium hydroxide. The prepared nonwoven was tested for its physical properties such as fabric thickness, fabric weight, tensile strength, tearing strength, elongation, abrasion resistance and air permeability.
