Airyfa is a high-performance nonwoven that is gentle on skin, simultaneously materializing softness and strength. By capitalizing on the company’s proprietary polyolefin spinning technology and producing this thin textile with a hollow structure that is characterized by a superior soft feeling and evenness, Mitsui Chemicals has simultaneously realized both softness and strength, which the conventional technology could not achieve.
Mitsui says this is an eco-friendly nonwoven that takes global environmental issues into consideration since the thin textile with a hollow structure reduces the amount of plastic used as a raw material. The name Airyfa is intended to represent airy (very light and soft) fabric.
Mitsui Chemicals has developed various high-performance nonwovens, such as bulky and highly flexible nonwovens, nonwovens with excellent elasticity, and the new nonwoven Airyfa for sanitary goods, including disposable diapers.
