We produce spunbond/spunmelt nonwoven fabrics

Our nonwoven fabric rolls are used  in baby diapers, feminine hygiene and incontinence care products – in a wide range of different applications. Nonwovens are innovative, versatile and indispensable, and modern life would be quite literally impossible without them. Learn more in the following.

What are nonwovens?

Nonwovens are unique, high-tech, engineered fabrics made from fibres, that are used across a wide range of applications and products. Our spunbond/spunmelt nonwoven fabrics are mainly used in baby diapers, feminine hygiene products and incontinence products – in our industry also called: “disposable absorbent hygiene products”. These products make an important contribution to the quality of life of millions of people.

Versatile use

Our fabrics are based on a spunbond/spunmelt technology. This is just one of the technologies when producing nonwovens. Depending on which technology platform is used, the nonwovens have specific characteristics used across a wide range of applications. Specific functions include: absorbency, liquid repellency, resilience, stretch, softness, strength, flame retardancy, washability, cushioning, filtering, bacterial barrier and sterility.

Products

Our nonwoven fabrics are key components in manufacturing of baby diapers, feminine hygiene and adult incontinence care products. Fabrics from our product lines can be used in different applications such as barrier leg cuff, backsheet, topsheet, core, laminates and closure systems.

Product categories

Our four product categories; Loft, Dual, Elite and Comfort are designed to meet different needs. All four can be used in hygiene products where low basis weight, high performance and softness are essential, such as barrier leg cuff, backsheet, topsheet, core, laminates and closure systems.

LOFT is adding a third dimension to our spunbond/spunmelt nonwoven fabric. By adding this new technology, we produce nonwoven fabrics with greater volume and a lofty structure for optimised cottony touch with an unprecedented level of softness.

DUAL is a perfect solution providing supreme silky softness and enhanced drapeability. The base is bi-component spunbond technology with an optimal polyethylene/polypropylene ratio.

 

ELITE  is our spunbond/spunmelt nonwoven fabric with superior effects. The Elite range consists of Elite Soft, Elite Barrier and Elite Strength. It also includes Elite Sense and Elite Open Dot offering enhanced properties and distinctive visual appearance due to unique bonding patterns.

COMFORT is our standard spunbond /spunmelt nonwoven fabric ensuring high performance at low basis weight.

 

Innowo Print

Innowo Print is our “steal-the-show” brand – with products where colours, scents and many other features can be added to the nonwovens in the printing process. Not only the nonwovens produced with technologies used by Fibertex Personal Care – but also other kinds of nonwoven produced with different nonwoven technologies used in the hygiene industry.

People Printing Perfection

The big idea at Innowo Print is to make an alternative to print on film, to improve the visual experience and to give the designer new possibilities and more space to play with. An alternative that should still be safe to use in products with direct skin contact such as sanitary napkins, baby diapers and adult incontinence care products.

Our Technology

Our nonwoven fabrics are based on spunbond/spunmelt technology, which is an integrated one-step process – from raw material to fabric. It is a very technical and complex process to produce our wide range of nonwoven fabrics.

Using our existing spunbond/spunmelt technology platform and extensive knowhow, we have just introduced an innovative technology – Loft Spunbond – enabling production of nonwovens with unparalleled level of softness.

When properties like supreme silky softness and drapeability are requested, we use our bi-component spunbond technology. With this technology, the spunbond fibres consist of polypropylene and polyethylene in a core/sheath configuration, where the polyethylene sheath provides the enhanced softness and drapeability characteristics.

No matter which technology we use, we work with a long list of general characteristics of our nonwoven fabrics – here is some of them:

Basis weight 7 g/m2 – 100 g/m2
Bonding patterns Standard 18% oval pattern.
Special softness enchancing patterns.
Other patterns can be developed jointly upon request.
Treatments Hydrophilic/Hydrophobic
Soft
Antistatic
Various botanicals are possible including: Aloe Vera, Olive Oil, Silk Protein, Vitamin E & Chamomile.
Labels A wide range of materials conform to the requirements set forward by the Nordic Swan Ecolabel and the EU Ecolabel. Additionally, many of our products conform to Oeko-tex 100 class I (Baby).
