Technical applications breathe new life into nonwovens
February 7, 2013
Technical applications breathe new life into nonwovens
As the hygiene markets demand thinner, lighter substrates, older nonwovens production lines are being repurposed to durable, or more technical applications. Join Nonwovens Industry's next webinar to gain insight on how these "older" machines can be adjusted to newer markets to provide higher profits to manufacturers.

Insights on Single-Use Nonwoven Surgical Drapes & Gowns
December 4, 2012
Insights on Single-Use Nonwoven Surgical Drapes & Gowns
During the last decade, issues, such as patient care and comfort, hygiene, hospital-acquired infections along with the rising cost of health care, have impacted the nonwovens medical segment. The potential for increasing the use of single-use nonwoven surgical drapes, gowns and clean air suits is driven by changing demographics. European regulations and surgical procedures as well as population changes are leading to the development of more efficient and cost-effective surgeries. The aging population, especially in Europe, leads to an increasing number of age-related surgeries further driving up the cost of healthcare.

Patient and staff well-being, regulations and standards drive change towards single-use nonwoven surgical drapes and gowns. While penetration rates are still relatively low for single-use nonwoven surgical drapes and gowns in Europe, there are large differences between countries.

This webinar presents growth opportunities and outlook for single-use nonwoven medical fabrics in Europe and includes the following topics:
  • Megatrends that are driving growth
  • Technologies and Material Advancements
  • In Hospital and Ambulatory Surgery Overview
  • Market opportunities
  • Sustainability

Nelson Labs Webinar Now Featuring: Masks, Gowns and Drapes - Testing the Barrier Performance of Your Product
Previously Recorded

This topic will cover the relevant standards and test methods for medical face masks, gowns and drapes testing. This training starts with discussing the standards:

1. ASTM F1670 - synthetic blood penetration
2. ASTM F1671 - viral penetration
3. AATCC 42 - hydrostatic pressure
4. AATCC 127 - spray impact
5. AAMI PB70 - liquid barrier classification of gowns and drapes
6. FDAs 510(k) guidance for gowns and drapes
7. ASTM F 2100- face mask specification
8. EN 14683- BFE, synthetic blood and Delta P

The webinar will include a summary of what tests need to be performed, how these tests are performed, sample sizes, and estimated turn-around times. The goal will be to provide a starting point that will allow you to put together a testing plan that is right for you, your product, your budget and your timeline.

Incontinence: Present and Future, Social, Economic and Market Trends
10:00 a.m. EST

Featuring Euromonitor's head of market research Ian Bell. Aging populations, as well as the emergence of 'self-help' in health care, have seen incontinence sales boom in developed markets, easing the reliance on nappy/diaper sales to keep the hygiene market moving. Lower income developing markets are also seeing movement through rapid social change, making incontinence a key market for manufacturers, consumers and retailers alike. Co-sponsored by INDA, the Association of Nonwoven Fabrics, this webinar spotlights one of the many consumer markets for nonwovens which will be discussed at January's 2012 Vision Consumer Products conference, which will be held in New Orleans, LA.
