Hygiene & Medicine

Nonwoven fabrics made of synthetic fibres, such as PET and PP are ideal for medical and hygiene products. PET fibres for example are often used in disposable textiles in the surgical area. Nonwovens with PET fibres are suitable for the production of the acquisition distribution layer (ADL). The ADL is used in hygienic products to improve the distribution of liquids.
