Topsheet – Side cover – Liner for backsheet lamination

Topsheet – Side cover – Liner for backsheet lamination

Softex nonwovens are developed with Airthrough Bonded technology and are mainly used as liners for topsheet and side covers in the feminine hygiene, and as a topsheet and substrate for backsheet lamination in baby and incontinence products.

The main benefits to using an Airthrough Bonded topsheet are softness and textile touch that cannot be achieved with alternative substrates, such as spunbonded or perforated film. Softex materials are produced with bicomponent fibers that give them superior softness when in contact with the skin. They
also improve fluid intake time and retention compared to most standard nonwoven topsheets.

Softex liners can have philic or phobic properties depending on the final application. The family includes the Embossed Softex – designed to add a fashionable touch with floral, geometric and striped patterns – and the Apertured Softex – with different perforation patterns.
