Hydrophilic Non Woven

Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic: What is the difference between hydrophobic and hydrophilic? Well, that is simple. Hydrophobic is “water – repelling” and Hydrophilic is “Water – Loving”. A Way to remember what Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic means is remembering that the word Hydro – is Greek for “Water”. Then – Phillic means in Greek, “Loving” and – Phobic means “fearing”. And that’s the difference between Hydrophilic and Hydrophobic.
