Visual Perfection

Appearance is more than quality. It also involves the aesthetics, such as color and patterns. Quality is often determined based on the way a product looks coming out of the package. Consumers want quality when they are purchasing hygiene products. It provides a sense of assurance – a unspoken guarantee – that there will be no problems.

Odor Abatement

Opening a product with a strong chemical odor can detract from the buying experience. Consumers have strong opinions about how products smell. With hygiene products, it is a preference. Some want a fragrance while others want nothing. Henkel has a Fragrance Center staffed with professionals who are experts in incorporating fragrances into products.

Softness Integration

Comfort is a top priority for consumers. Consumers have high standards of softness and want nothing rough touching their skin to cause discomfort. Manufacturers can achieve the softness in many ways. However, bonding these soft substrates has challenges. Understanding how nonwoven materials are developed is critical since softness can be achieved in many ways.

Noise Elimination

Consumers want discretion in their hygiene products so quietness is critical. The combination of the substrates and other products need to move with consumers and not create undue noise. These products work with nonwoven materials and personal hygiene product designs to eliminate noises during movement.

Troubleshooting Nonwoven Hot Melt Adhesives

Downtime for manufacturers can be costly – reaching upwards of 500 hours annually according to some studies. Operating nonwoven hot melt adhesive production lines have a variety of challenges. To establish a robust process, a strong understanding of the key process variables is required to create and maintain a stable application. It also involves learning how to implement new applications and troubleshoot existing applications.

Troubleshooting issues on a production line requires understanding the causes – bonding failures, thermal stability, nozzle plugs and adhesive placement – and how to correct them. For nonwoven applications, manufacturers rely on the effectiveness of hot melt adhesives to assure a strong seal or bond. Brand owners need to understand the working relationship between the equipment and adhesive to maximize both uptime and finished good performance.
