After a first general overview of the various possibilities of bio-based materials in sustainable hygiene products, we will take a closer look at different sustainable substrates. Such substrates can be used for all kinds of hygienic products, such as baby diapers, femcare or incontinence products.
There is a broad range of different natural substrates:
- Viscose / Bamboo
- Tissue / Cellulose
- Bio-PE (Sugar Cane; Corn)
- PLA (Corn; Starch)
If you want to produce sustainable hygiene products using sustainable substrates, it is important to know the more diverse the substrates being used, the more demanding requirements on the bonding mechanism.
To ensure the best quality and product performance in addition to improving sustainability, you should involve your adhesive supplier when redesigning the hygiene product.
