Jones Family of Companies continues to build on its eighty-year-old foundation that supports us in doing business in a sustainable way. To us, sustainable development means combining long-term economic value-creation with a forward-thinking approach to business development, environmental stewardship and social responsibility. Our sustainability activities focus on material issues relevant to our business and stakeholders. We have developed many products with sustainable principles as the blueprint for product differentiation and performance efficacy. As a leader in the use of natural & recycled fibers, we stand ready as artists and engineers to create distinctly unique products that will be distinguished not only by how they perform for our customers but also for how our products contribute to the harmonic rhythms of business and environmental sustainability.
As a family business, Jones Nonwovens combines proven methodology, sustainability stewardship and readiness for innovation. We take great pride in our products and our employees.
Whether you need to incorporate a fire barrier or a layer of resilient padding, we’ve got you covered.
Upholstered furniture requires durable padding with great contouring characteristics. Jones manufactures both synthetic fiber and natural cotton batting options.
Our cotton matting products are a natural, highly absorbant choice for cleaning up industrial spills. Our natural fiber protective drop cloths have many uses.
Bast fibers are the fibrous part of the plant just below the bark. They are a family of fibers that allow for the entire plant to be used. These fibers are annually renewable crops that come off of the stalks rather than the leaves and grow in 90 to 100 days.
These low maintenance, high-quality fibers do not require chemicals or pesticides, they put nutrients back into the earth similar to nitrates, take up less space and water, and erosion is nonexistent. For these reasons, bast fibers are quickly becoming the millennial alternative for environmental responsibility.
Cotton fiber grows on the seed of a variety of plants of the genus Gossypium. Of the four cotton species cultivated for fiber, the most important is G. hirsutum, which originated in Mexico and produces 90% of the world's cotton.
Cotton is almost pure cellulose, with softness and breathability that have made it the world's most popular natural fiber.
Fiber length varies from 10 to 65 mm and in diameter from 11 to 22 microns.Download PDF
Sheep (Ovis aries) were first domesticated 10,000 years ago. Sheep are shorn of their wool usually once a year. After scouring to remove grease and dirt, wool is carded and then processed into fabric.
Wool has natural crimp and scale patterns that make it easy to process. Fabrics made from wool have greater bulk than other textiles, provide better insulation and are resilient, elastic and durable.
Fiber diameter ranges from 16 microns in superfine merino wool (similar to cashmere) to more than 40 microns in coarse hairy wools.Download PDF
Made from purified cellulose, primarily from wood pulp, which is chemically converted into a soluble compound, resulting in synthetic fibers of nearly pure cellulose.
The most commercially produced fiber in the world. Available in many diameters, lengths, cross-sectional shapes and with various finished properties.
Similar to an acrylic fiber; however, fibers are flame retardant and do not combust.
Second only to polyester in bulk commercial production for synthetic fibers, nylons typically have a silky hand and high strength.
The use of recycled or reclaimed fiber, yarns and fabric is a hallmark of Jones Nonwovens.
Nonwoven mats of various fibers (both natural and synthetic) can be manufactured in a wide range of thickness and densities to meet the customer’s needs.
The materials used in this type of finished fabric are saved from the landfill through our ability to process them back into useful pads.
For decades, our non-woven products have proven themselves to be effective solutions for many industrial and manufacturing applications. However, our greatest asset is our ability to readily innovate new products. Give us a challenge and let our development team work hand in hand with your R&D to create a product tailored to your specific needs.
