A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11871883B2) discloses a nonwoven fabric designed for various applications. The fabric consists of a first nonwoven outer layer, a second nonwoven outer layer, and a core layer made of cellulosic fibers. The outer layers are composed of blended staple fibers containing a polymer and an elastomeric polyolefin, with different compositions for each layer. The layers are mechanically consolidated, and the total fiber content includes the blended fibers and cellulosic fibers.

Furthermore, the patent claims specify additional features such as the composition of the blended staple fibers, the inclusion of a liquid additive, the use of biopolymers like polylactic acid, and the potential application of the fabric as wipes with antimicrobial properties. The fabric's properties, including elongation at peak and method of consolidation through hydroentanglement, are also detailed in the claims. Overall, the patented nonwoven fabric offers a unique combination of materials and construction methods suitable for a range of uses, particularly in hygiene and cleaning products.
