Baby, Adult & Feminine Hygiene
Hygiene industry is a very demanding market in terms of both technical performance and other properties of non-wovens such as softness, pureness and moisture absorption. For applications in which non-wovens are used, whether baby care, feminine hygiene or adult incontinence, performance can be driven by the correct material selection. The personal hygiene industry is constantly seeking advanced material solutions helping manufacturers to push the limits of consumer safety and convenience, function, sustainability and cost control. The modern baby diapers and incontinence products have a layered construction, which allows the distribution and transfer of fluids to a penetrable core structure, where it is locked. Diapers provide hygiene, cleanliness, and comfort.
