Increasing demand for face masks: Henkel supporting the personal hygiene industry with adhesive solutions
The demand for medical protective wear has increased exponentially in recent years, as it is an important factor in protecting against infection and the spreading of diseases in healthcare environments. For this reason, factories that manufacture personal hygiene products and nonwovens are adapting their production lines to fulfill the increasing need for material for personal protective equipment. Henkel’s AQUENCE® and TECHNOMELT® brands provide the materials necessary to manufacture high-quality medical protective wear such as masks, gowns, and respiratory devices.
