The service characteristics of melt-blown materials depend strong on the high specific area and nonequilibrium state of the fiber surface layer that has rather high surface energy. The physicochemical activity of this class of materials in various technological, working and natural media has defined their optimum fields of application in industry, medicine, construction, and other important spheres. New means of efficiently cleaning running water and foodstuffs, as well as technological media, wastes, and industrial waste gases are extensively explored now. Disposable melt-blown hygienic and engineering products, novel grades of textile decorative fabric, leatherette, carpeting, and other household articles have become of paramount importance for the modern generation. Melt-blown materials have already occupied a significant place in civil construction successfully solving problems in heat, sound, and waterproofing of buildings and various structures. Today’s advances and prospects in medical technique development are also improhable without fihrous materials. A powerful global packaging industry that has expanded during the last half century employs melt-blown products widely, too. A diagram presented in Fig. 11.1 shows the potentialities of melt-blown materials and visualizes the main trends in their use. Following, some characteristics of the group of materials mentioned in the diagram are given.
