HELSINKI - Suominen has launched a new premium nonwoven with a unique tri-layer structure and high-definition patterning which, the company says, enhances its cleaning capabilities.
Branded as Fibrella Strata, the tri-layer nonwoven has been designed to deliver an exceptional combination of strength and softness across a number of application areas.
“When developing Fibrella Strata, Suominen used its process know-how to create a nonwoven that has a high-definition pattern," said Tara Millar, Manager, Category Management, Americas. "The product maintains the pattern when wet to help enhance its cleaning performance and bulk softness. Fibrella Strata’s unique tri-layer structure makes it stand out on the market. It is a combination of everything you need for effective cleaning with excellent opacity at a lower basis weight. Due to its excellent stability and great strength profile, it is perfect for easy converting and one-at-a-time dispensing, saving time and money."
Although suitable for a multitude of industries and applications, the cleaning performance of Fibrella Strata is said to make it ideal as a premium nonwoven for the hygiene, personal care, and in particular, the baby sector.
Fibrella Strata’s composite structure also has good dimensional stability which enables efficient converting. The structure helps provide a better MD:CD (machine direction to cross direction) ratio compared to many standard spunlace products, Suominen says.
