    Processors continue to be inundated with options on how to properly process Super Absorbent Materials (SAM). This presentation will focus on some of the challenge’s processors may encounter from receiving the SAM at their loading dock to dispensing the material to their end process. Methods of transferring materials as well as dispensing material will be presented and discussed to allow the user to develop an understanding of best practices for their process.  

    Presentation is suited for engineers, purchasers and plant managers who are looking to justify and understand how their current equipment may be adapted to improve and maintain overall product quality, increase yields, minimize downtime, and provide “real-time” product quality to meet current and future processing needs.

    As consumers seek a more diverse range of products that they can not only rely on, but that suit their lifestyle choices, the absorbent hygiene sector has begun to witness a move away from the dependence on single-use disposables. Finding a product that is suitable for multi-use but that offers the performance and reliability of the more common disposable options is the aspiration of many.
    
At Technical Absorbents we are focused on creating fabrics that are not only superabsorbent, but engineered to meet specific application requirements. This webinar will focus on the reusable solutions we have developed with the absorbent hygiene industry in mind. Our portfolio of discreet, high performing fabrics – containing our Super Absorbent Fibre (SAFTM) – are both superabsorbent and capable of being washed and dried multiple times. This makes them perfect as the absorbent core in reusable feminine hygiene and light incontinence applications. We will also take a look at some of our latest disposable options.

    Avoiding microbial contamination and adequate preservation are a key to product safety. The high microbiological risk of wet wipes is due to the unique product characteristics which contains both formula & fabric. adding to the difficulty are in-use habits, consumer ingredient's safety concerns and marketing claims: a strong trend of “free-from”, which are limiting the choice of ingredients and preservation systems. 

    The webinar will discuss new findings on the microbial risk of wet wipes relating to various fabric compositions, and impact of formulation, and finally, offer new solutions to overcome those obstacles: 

    SharoWIPES™ line was created following an in-depth research to answer the industry needs. It offers a technological breakthrough by providing a solution which protects both the formula and the non-woven, with a unique anti-biofilm mechanism. 

    The systems demonstrate high efficacy broad spectrum protection at surprisingly low level of use.

    * Clean Label: Similar to nature & FREE FROM phenoxyethanol. 
    * Safety first: Clinically tested for baby care and sensitive areas 
    * ECO friendly: Readily biodegradable, Vegan

    Is the definition of sustainability morphing due to Covid-19? How is the conversation surrounding raw materials, end of life options and LCA changing in the nonwovens industry as consumers reinvent their buying habits to maintain their health and safety? Can safety and health ever be in harmony? Can our high level, often abstract ideals cross over with the reality of the products we choose to buy and use?

     

    The Covid-19 pandemic has upended nearly every aspect of daily life and the supply chain. As the world resumes and adapts to a new normal what will this mean for plastics, recycling and other initiatives in a new environment of health priorities, and budget concerns.
