Produce PE fibers with exceptional softness and comfort

ASPUN™ polyethylene (PE) Fiber Resins represent a step change in non-woven and fiber plastics and polymers, offering unparalleled tactile softness and comfort for absorbent hygiene products.

DOW's proprietary INSITE™ Technology helps unlock these benefits, including improved spinnability, which allows for the production of more consistent, higher-quality binder and staple fibers, elastic nonwovens, and more. This technology also aids compatibilizing and blending, helping spunbond and meltblown fiber producers and product manufacturers improve efficiency.

ASPUN™ Fiber Resins are poised to aid consumers throughout the world, helping satisfy increasingly complex comfort, softness and confidence requirements for their hygiene products. Discover how these fiber resins could aid your processing and production.

Sharing the secret of softness

Since its introduction, the family of ASPUN™ PE Fiber Resins has offered unparalleled tactile softness and comfort for nonwoven and fiber applications. The secret? Among other things, our proprietary INSITE™ Technology. 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. 

Processing

The ability to process efficiently across a wide temperature range (200-300°C) allows their use with many different polymers, including polypropylene (PP) and polyester (PET).

Low melting temperature

Low melting temperatures, in comparison to PP, for quick and efficient bonding.

The next generation of spunbounds 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 and the development of high-quality monocomponent spunbond and spunblown nonwovens.

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.

Quality

Significantly improved softness compared to both mono and bico PP-based fibers.

Sustainability

As mono-material (PE) solutions, spunbond and spunblown nonwovens made with ASPUN™ AT Fiber Resins 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

Efficient processing

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.
