Together with its customers and partners, Sandler AG, Schwarzenbach/Germany, is ascertaining which natural fibers are suitable for which products. New nonwovens for acquisition and distribution layers (ADL), are putting these efforts into practice: Every component of this ADL can be made from renewable or recycled raw materials and the nonwovens’ properties can be adapted to the end product’s desired characteristics. This innovation is nominated for an Index award in the “Nonwoven roll goods” category.
In close cooperation with partners along the value chain, the company is also testing ways of recycling and reusing trims or faulty material in the production of its technical nonwovens. This keeps resources in a closed cycle, and the concept of circular economy and reducing the carbon footprint of its products is realized.
Latest innovation for sustainable wipes will also be presented. The new nonwovens substrate tackles the challenges typically faced by hygiene products produced from sustainable raw materials. Made of 100% fibers from renewable sources, this biodegradable and compostable material features a soft textile touch, high opacity, and outstanding fluid management.
The Index trade fair takes place in Geneva/Switzerland from October 19-22, 2021.
