Absorbent and Hygiene Products

Active comfort, for every age and lifestyle

Looking to design absorbent hygiene products? Our range of proven, polyethylene-based materials is helping develop comfortable, sustainable and absorbent hygiene products.  

What’s expected from today’s absorbent and hygiene products? Softness. Comfort. Fit. Discreetness. Aesthetics. Strength. Sustainability. And, of course, protection. That’s what we mean when we talk about “active comfort” for nonwoven and fiber, elastic, top and backsheet film and hot melt adhesive solutions.


Our elastomeric polymers offer excellent comfort stretch, body fit, breathability, and discreetness to deliver waistbands, panels, ears, and landing strips that meet the needs of even the most active infants and toddlers.

Nonwovens and Fibers

Ultra-soft, cloth-like comfort; enhanced breathability; and low noise are just a few of the advantages offered by our ethylene-based materials for nonwovens and fibers

Backsheet Films

With options for breathable and non-breathable blown and cast films – plus extrusion coating – our polyethylene resins enable development of lightweight, flexible, high-performance films that combine barrier, durability, discreetness, and more.

Hot Melt Adhesives

Our polyolefin elastomer-based materials for HMAs offer more efficient bonding; thermal and color stability; clean, consistent application; and reduced odor.

Nonwovens and Fibers

Our ethylene-based resins help produce nonwovens and fibers with ultra-soft, cloth-like aesthetics; low noise; and enhanced breathability for softer, quieter, and more comfortable feminine hygiene products.

Hot Melt Adhesives

The exceptional bonding; thermal and color stability; clean, consistent application; and reduced odor of our polyolefin elastomer-based HMA resins offer confidence and peace of mind to both manufacturers and consumers.

Top and Backsheet Films

Feminine hygiene products demand ultra-thin, lightweight, flexible, and quiet films that still deliver excellent barrier performance. Our polyethylene options for breathable and non-breathable blown and cast films…plus extrusion coating…are definitely up to the challenge. 

Feminine Hygiene Pad layers

Users of adult incontinence products need to be comfortable and move freely. Our polyolefin elastomer-based materials help bring excellent comfort stretch, body fit, breathability, and discreetness to both large and small elastic components. 

Nonwovens and Fibers

Our ethylene-based polymers help produce nonwovens and fibers that fulfill consumer desires for ultra-soft, cloth-like comfort; discreetness; improved skin health; and more. 

Hot Melt Adhesives

Extremely efficient bonding; thermal and color stability; clean, consistent application; and reduced odor mean our polyolefin elastomer-based HMA materials are well prepared for the challenges of adult hygiene products.

Backsheet Films

Our polyethylene resins allow the development of high-performance barrier films that are thin yet durable, tough yet discreet. And extremely versatile too – with processing options that include breathable and non-breathable blown and cast films, as well as extrusion coating.

Adult Incontinence Layers

Substrates made with our ethylene-based polymers offer excellent potential for development of nonwoven wipes that combine outstanding softness and reliable performance with enhanced sustainability, shorter supply chains, and lower overall costs.

Nonwovens and Fibers

Our proven binder technologies – including APE-free, ultra-low formaldehyde products – offer outstanding performance and value for nonwoven wipe applications.

Antimicrobial Formulations

With a rich portfolio of surfactants, solvents, amines, chelants, rheology modifiers, and more, we’re ready to help meet the unique performance, processing, and regulatory needs of nonwoven wipes.

Softness is only the beginning

From cloth-like softness and comfort stretch to clean, virtually odor-free adhesives and lightweight, breathable and non-breathable films, we offer materials that help improve comfort and skin health. That help people of all ages move freely with confidence.

Driving real change

Downgauging is one way to reduce plastic waste and our carbon footprint, as well as make better use of natural resources. Our advanced technologies help create lighter, thinner structures, using less material while improving performance and comfort.

Teaming up with others in the value chain has allowed us to develop PE-based versions of virtually every diaper component. The result – an “Extreme PE” diaper prototype – contains >40% percent polyethylene vs. the 4-8% found in conventional diapers.


ASPUN™ Fiber Grade Resins for nonwovens

Achieve advanced levels of softness and comfort in hygiene applications.
