Wet or Dry?
There is a huge wealth of wipes – both dry and wet, and in different pack sizes. It is also a market that is constantly growing. We specialize in delivering nonwoven for the manufacture of special wipes with special requirements.
While spunlace is a popular choice for wipes, wetlaid and chemically bonded nonwoven can also be used.
Both spunlace and chemically bonded nonwoven are very soft and skin-friendly materials. Wetlaid is more reminiscent of paper.
Durable and liquid resistant
The advantage of nonwoven is that it can withstand and absorb liquid very well compared regular paper, for example. The material also withstands perfume and other additives found in wet wipes.
The market for wipes is gigantic, and this is thanks to the amazing properties of nonwoven. We work with the customer to find the exact right properties – it needs to be soft yet able to absorb liquid. In many cases, we develop completely new materials for our customers.
