Currently, 86% of Eucafluff's sales are made overseas, in which 25% are sold in Europe. "The acceptance of our fluff pulp in mature markets and multinational companies has confirmed the good performance that eucalyptus fiber can also bring to the hygiene market. We are committed to improving the quality and performance of our client’s end products and this has reflected in the global partnerships we have achieved these past months," says Alexandre Corrêa, executive manager of the Business Unit at Suzano.
Developed by Suzano and resulting from 11 years of research, Eucafluff is the first bleached kraft pulp of eucalyptus fluff type in the world, and is be applied in absorbent products as well as personal hygiene products, disposables like children and adults diapers, sanitary napkins for women, amongst other applications. The key benefits provided by this unique fiber are a higher liquid absorption and retention at product cores and greater comfort and discretion to the end user, such as in the case of application in incontinence pants. These benefits are due to the greater compressibility of the eucalyptus fiber, a feature that has also brought other associated benefits as reduction in packaging size, transportation, and storage costs.
