Attendees at this week’s Hygienix conference will be tasked with choosing the winner of the Hygienix Innovation Award. Three companies, each selected as finalist for the award, will present information about their products during the conference. The winner will be announced on Thursday morning, the final day of the event.
The three finalists were selected from more than 20 contenders by INDA’s Technical Advisory Board of technical professionals from member companies. The finalists are:
RegaliteUltraPure from Eastman Chemical, a new innovative hydrocarbon resin with low odor, low VOC properties, and low trace chemicals. This new product gives formulators the freedom to formulate with SBS, SIS or APO while getting the lowest odor and trace chemicals content for every hot melt chemistry used, and SBS/partially hydrogenated resin hot melt chemistry.
SMS Bico Fabric from Fitesa: a cutting-edge PE/PP spunbond and PE meltblown nonwoven imparting the softness of PE and the strength of a PP for hygiene applications in a SMS construction. The innovative fabric offers drapeability and liquid barrier properties as a transformative solution for the hygiene markets.
The FEUR System by Vemarei: a unique fecal incontinence protection system features a discreet innovative pouch and pull cord design that is easy to remove after a bowel movement, providing continued cleanliness to the wearer. The FEUR System’s interior pad core is made from a highly absorbent nonwoven placed between two outer nonwoven layers welded together to create a channel for a pull cord that the wearer can pull at first sign of a bowel movement, thus creating an absorbent pouch container.
