Polypropylene wipes are made from thermoplastic polymer using a melt-blown process to form long rolls that are then converted into nonwoven fibers. In addition to wipes, the converted fibers are also used to produce a wide range of useful products such as face masks, filters, and diapers. Polypropylene is a popular wipe material because of its durability and resistance to solvents and heat. It is also an inexpensive material and an economical wipe choice.
