Product Offering

Core Materials

Our core materials start with the best fluff pulp fibers available. These provide high absorption and caliper. Other materials include bi-component and synthetic fibers and super-absorbent polymers.

Stretch Components

Spunlace nonwovens can provide excellent extension characteristics to work with the stretchable films used in elastic laminates for adult incontinence closure systems. Spunlace meets the demand to design products that closely resemble cloth underwear.


Topsheets in Adult Care require skin friendly materials with efficient wicking properties to manage fluids. Our topsheets provide the necessary comfort to prevent skin irritation when used on a daily basis.

Acquisition Distribution Layer

Our spunlace and airlaid ADL will upgrade the performance of your pads and will increase the softness of the total product. The special blend of fibers is chosen for a faster multiple acquisition time and competitive rewet performance. The surface structure supports the process-ability on the converting lines.
