Spun Bonded Polypropylene Non-Woven Material for Masks is the perfect exterior material for a DIY face mask. In fact, this material is similar to what the N95 masks use as their outer layers. Paired with appropriate filter material (#122473, #122475, #122476), this combination of materials makes for a very effective and protective DIY face mask unit. See the "Documents" section below for face mask templates so you can sew your own protective face mask. Refer to our blog “How to Sew a DIY Protective Face Mask” (#300465XHT) for how-to instructions on using the template to sew a protective face mask.

Spun Bonded Pillow Protector is a nonwoven polypropylene fabric that is used for pillow covers and face masks. This fabric makes a cover that is breathable, nonallergenic, water-repellent, resistant to moisture and stains, as well as dyeable. Great for both indoor and outdoor pillow inserts! Spun Bonded Pillow Protector Fabric is incredibly strong and resists tearing, even under high stress. It is machine washable and gets softer with each wash.

MASK MAKING: Value for the money and easiest of handling for Covid19 masks.

The product is easy to handle, very light, and at a very good price vs fusible nonwoven materials. We're coming back for more, hope you have it available and we do not have to wait for the shortages of the fusible non-woven materials.

Perfect Cushion Lining

While this fabric was promoted online as a filter layer for mask-making (good to know), I bought it to use it as a seating cushion liner under Sunbrella outdoor fabric. I found the better-made commercially-manufactured cushions use what appears to be this polypropylene non-woven material and it makes it tremendously easier to take the outer upholstery fabric on and off for washing in addition to giving the foam a little extra protection.

Great stuff for masks!

This is great stuff for masks! It retains is water resistant quality after 5 washes, and is easy to work with. Very breathable, and you can decorate it with Sharpies for variety.

I understand that there are two weights of polypropylene on the market. It would have been nice to know the weight of the product I ordered.

Sailrite Response

You will find the weight of this material listed in the Specs chart, just below the general description. I hope this is helpful!
