ASPUN™ Fiber Resins
Softness and comfort that rise above.
When it comes to absorbent hygiene products, comfort reigns supreme. And when it comes to ultra-soft, comfortable nonwovens and fibers, ASPUN™ Fiber Resins are the power behind the throne.
This unique, highly respected family of polyethylene (PE) based resins offers outstanding performance and processing for an incredible range of applications, including: bicomponent binder fibers, bicomponent staple fibers, bicomponent spunbonds, monocomponent spunbonds and spunblowns, elastic nonwovens, laminates and meltblowns.

Sharing the secret of softness
Since its introduction, the family of ASPUN™ Fiber Resins has offered unparalleled tactile softness and comfort for nonwoven and fiber applications.
The secret? Among other things, our proprietary INSITE™ Technology gives ASPUN™ Resins:
- The ability to process efficiently across a wide temperature range (200-300°C), allowing their use with many different polymers, including polypropylene (PP) and polyester (PET)
- Low melting temperatures, in comparison to PP, for quick and efficient bonding
We’re excited to share ASPUN™ Fiber Resins with customers throughout the world, helping satisfy consumer needs for comfort, softness and confidence in their hygiene products.
The next generation of spunbonds and spunblowns
Our most recent development, ASPUN™ AT Advanced Technology Fiber Resins, takes proven, ultra-soft ASPUN™ technology to new levels by enabling the spinning of monocomponent PE-based fibers.
This innovation improves spinnability and abrasion resistance while maintaining the mechanical performance and softness of existing ASPUN™ Resins.
The result? Advanced materials that not only enable the development of high-quality monocomponent spunbond and spunblown nonwovens, but also offer significantly improved softness compared to both mono and bico PP-based fibers.
Their unique combination of processability, durability and cloth-like drape and feel makes ASPUN™ AT Resins an outstanding choice for use in hygiene wearables such as diapers, feminine hygiene and adult incontinence articles, as well as wipes.
Equally important, as mono-material (PE) solutions, spunbond and spunblown nonwovens made with ASPUN™ AT Fiber Resins also help support material reduction and sustainability efforts.

Soft yet strong meltblowns
ASPUN™ MB Meltblown Fiber Resins enable softer, finer fibers that improve the softness and comfort of nonwovens while maintaining strength, durability and processability in composites such as SMS using bicomponent spunbonds and monocomponent meltblown fabrics.
These lighter, thinner fibers can also contribute to many other advantages, including:
- Improved bonding to PP/PE bico spunbonds
- Reduced noise/stiffness
- Improved coverage
- Better odor control
- Enhanced gamma sterilization resistance
ASPUN™ MB Resins also offer the same high levels of processability our customers expect from ASPUN™ Fiber Resins, plus:
- Comparable throughput rates with lower extruder and die pressures than PP
- The potential for lower production costs based on reduced air temperature, air flow rate and melt temperature
Let’s get more comfortable together
We share our expertise by working closely with customers, helping develop custom tailored solutions for both new and existing applications. Pack Studios ̶ our exclusive, global network of technical experts, equipment and testing capabilities – helps bring these innovations to market faster and more cost efficiently.
These developmental partnerships are also helping address the unique sustainability issues faced by the nonwoven and hygiene industries. We’d love to talk about how ASPUN™ Fiber Resins can make a difference in your applications. Together, we can help deliver more sustainable, circular solutions for the future.
