Based on the combination of extensive consumer research, voice of hygiene customers study, and our world class adhesives expertise, we identified that there is a need for a new class of positioning adhesives that meet the evolving needs of the millennial consumers and deliver measurable value to the manufacturers of the disposable hygiene products.
The results of these efforts is our new generation of the positioning adhesive, the Full-Care® 6217 that delivers:
- Up to 20% savings through coat weight reduction, compared to the industry leading adhesives.
- Consistently higher peels with no adhesive transfer to undergarments.
- Robust performance on different fabric types like Nylon, Microfiber and Cotton
- Excellent adhesion on both fabric sides for reliable stay-in-place performance.
These benefits of Full-Care® 6217 were highly appreciated by the industry as they address the needs of the modern user, while providing a robust performance and saving to the manufacturers.
