Glatfelter is a pioneer in the production of ultra-light nonwovens.
Our Baby Care product line is lightweight but high in performance because of our unique layering system that creates bulky and opaque substrates. Spunlace nonwovens can provide excellent extension characteristics to work with the stretchable films used in elastic laminates for baby diapers.
Stretch Components: Our fabrics have excellent extension characteristics to work with stretchable films used in elastic laminates for diaper closure systems. Jacob Holm is the first to introduce a 100%PP spunlace material as low as 15 gsm, a dedicated grade for ultra light and extremely soft stretch ears.
Topsheet: As hygiene products become thinner to increase comfort, the challenge emerges to make sure the product still feels soft. A spunlace topsheet is the excellent choice to improve softness.
Backsheet: Our lighter weight spunlace portfolio opens the potential for the use of super soft materials at the number one point of connection for the consumer. Products at 20 gsm and below have been developed for use as backsheet fabrics
