Developments Advancing Productivity

Solutions for Pant Diapers with Improved Breathability, Softness and Fit

- Improving comfort resulting from higher breathability via new waist band solutions and inline perforation of nonwovens.

Some details:

•     We will explore waist band solutions with film or with threads, possibly including reference to some product introduction in the market.

•     Also we will provide update on options for inline perforation of nonwoven backsheet

- Enhancing tactile perception via higher softness with new technical solutions for soft side seams, improved waist bands and solution for hi-loft three-dimensional laminates

We will focus on softness as a result of three areas.

•     New technical solutions for soft side seam

•     How softness may be improved with the appropriate waist band solutions with film or with threads

•     3D Laminates

- Providing higher discreteness for the user with thinner cores, less wrinkles on waist band, thinner and softer side seams

The topic of fit will be approached with three opportunities:

•     Low trim narrow side seams

•     Reclosable-refastenable sides

•     Cores with channels
