How can we optimize comfort?
Most people crave comfort. Especially people who use personal hygiene products. Babies and toddlers (and parents). Tweens, teens and adult women. And don’t forget seniors. Everyone wants the utmost in softness, breathability, light weight, discretion and protection. Which all add up to comfort. In all of its various meanings.
ASPUN™ Fiber Resins are specifically designed to address the need for comfort in diapers and other absorbent hygiene products. Used alone or in combination with other materials, ASPUN™ Resins can offer cloth-like aesthetics, cushiony softness, and much more to virtually any nonwoven or fiber application.
Bicomponent spunbond nonwovens
In bicomponent spunbond nonwovens, ASPUN™ Resins help deliver the ultra-soft, ultra-comfortable, and ultra-quiet performance consumers want along with:
- Excellent drape
- High extensibility
- Ultra-thin products
Monocomponent spunbond nonwovens
ASPUN™ Fiber Resins help deliver cloth-like aesthetics to mono spunbond nonwovens, including extreme softness, exceptional drape/flexibility, and low noise for enhanced comfort and confidence.
Bicomponent staple fibers
Using ASPUN™ Resins in the sheath layer of bicomponent fibers enables excellent softness and improved touch/feel. Bico fibers containing ASPUN™ also allow development of nonwovens with:
- Custom designed tensile strength/elongation properties
- Lower temperatures/improved strength during air through bonding
- Optimized bulk/high loft
- Improved drape
Bicomponent binder fibers
Combining ASPUN™ Fiber Resins with a functional polymer such as AMPLIFY™ Functional Polymers, BYNEL™ Adhesive Resins, or FUSABOND™ Functional Polymers allows development of ultra-thin airlaid nonwovens with excellent bonding, wet pad integrity, bulk maintenance, and more.
ASPUN™ Resins in the sheath and INFUSE™ Olefin Block Copolymers (OBCs) in the core helps produce highly extensible elastic nonwovens that combine exceptional fit, comfort, and discreetness.
The softer, finer fibers produced by ASPUN™ MB Meltblown Fiber Resins are helping create a new generation of even more comfortable, quiet nonwovens with improved:
- Barrier performance (air permeability and hydrohead)
- SMS bonding
- Odor control (face masks, HAP, etc.)
Teaming up with Dow and ASPUN™ Fiber Resins can bring remarkable levels of comfort to consumers – and you. We’d love to hear about your nonwoven and fiber needs.
