Developments and Outlook in the Use of Carded Air Through, Bicomponent Spunbonded and Spunlaced Nonwovens in Hygiene

Demand for soft nonwovens used in diaper, feminine and adult incontinence care hygiene products has emerged as a key aesthetic component in consumer demand. This one element has driven swift changes in product design, manufacturing technology and raw materials across the global nonwoven industry. This presentation will provide perspective on how softness is being addressed through the use of carded air through bonded, bicomponent spunbonded and spunlaced nonwoven products and raw materials across the world and the trends for the use of these technologies and associated raw materials.

High Barrier Nonwovens for Hygiene

High barrier materials achieve liquid transmission blockage but many times with a disadvantage of high basis weight or softness. The materials are becoming significant to allow for low pulp content core design trends, but overall comfort and cost considerations are of high importance as well. We will define what barrier means in material function and how to characterize, and present approaches to creating barrier constructions.

Adult Incontinence: Capturing the Next Big Growth in Asia Hygiene

The pace of population aging in Asia has been faster than any other region. By 2030, the number of senior citizens aged 65 and older will be around 200 million among the total 3.8 billion people living in the region. Compared with the mature markets such as Japan, Europe and the U.S., most Asian countries are still in their preliminary stage in marketing Adult Incontinence products, and it is expected that these markets will experience explosive growth within the next few years.
