Hygiene

Soft and Comfortable

Nonwoven material is used in hygiene products like diapers and sanitary napkins because it is soft, absorbing and allows moisture to permeate. It is also used as disposable cover sheets for beds and tables in the healthcare and massage sector.

Soft and pliable
Nonwovens like chemically bonded nonwoven and spunlace are soft and very good for hygiene products in contact with the skin. Spunbond is a litter stiffer and more resistant, but can be made soft for products in contact with the skin. There is also special elastic spunbond that can be used in diapers to follow the baby’s movements.

Breathable
Nonwoven is very flexible as a material, and the softer nonwoven materials used in hygiene products are developed to be breathable and allow air to permeate.

Absorbs or allows liquid to pass through
Depending on what the needs are, there is soft nonwoven material that either absorbs or allows moisture and liquid to permeate. For example, a special coated spunbond that allows vapor/moisture to pass through but blocks liquid is important for comfort in products like diapers and sanitary napkins.

Durable
Because nonwoven is resistant to liquid, it is more durable than paper, for example. It is also both stronger and softer than paper products.

Most of us come into contact with nonwoven in diapers and other hygiene items. Nonwoven is really amazing –it can be made so incredibly soft that it can be used near the skin
