Abstract Nonwoven fabrics are very diverse in their structural properties. This paper discusses potential opportunities and challenges involved in jetting and depositing microdroplets on such materials. This study reports on the interaction of controlled droplets with the nonwoven substrates. Droplets used had velocities of about 1.8 m/s and diameters of about 90 μm and were produced by using a drop-on-demand (DOD) inkjet printhead. Nonwovens used consisted of two groups of high and low solid… Expand
