Sandler To Expand Role In Wipes

March 28, 2007

Sandler will add a second higher performance nonwovens line to make materials mainly targeted at the wipes market. According to the company, Sandler will invest €20 million in the new line, its second for the wipes market. The new line will be 150 meters long and 30 meters wide and will be run under the same stringent hygienic conditions as its existing spunlace line, which was added in 2003. Since entering the spunlace market, Sandler has made great strides to offer differentiated products for the wipes markets by using special fiber blends and finishing techniques such as embossing, structuring and printing. One example is sawatex TriLace, a wipe with good dust and dirt absorption rates that dries quickly and is ideal for a number of household cleaning applications.
