Tredegar Unveils New Elastic Laminate

March 2, 2009

Super-soft, stretchable elastic laminates will target diaper ear applications.

Elastics supplier Tredegar Film Products, Richmond, VA, has introduced FlexFeel elastic laminates for diaper ears and large area applications. The company describes the super-soft, stretchable elastic laminates as a breakthrough product that responds to today’s market demands for softness, fit and feel. Featuring excellent stretch properties, FlexFeel is expected to help diaper manufacturers build comfort into their products.

The new  laminate combines a super-soft feel with a strong laminate bond, resulting in a cottony nonwoven that won’t separate. Designed to prevent nonwoven failures, it resists delamination even when stretched. According to Tredegar, FlexFeel’s unique composition also means lower incidence of pilling and fuzzing, so the end product will have a smooth, uniform appearance. The technology is market-ready and has been fully reviewed for right to sell. FlexFeel is available in a choice of grades and with a range of possibilities.
