Controlling bacteria, germs and bugs is the first rule of hygiene.

So we’ve developed some pretty fancy nonwovens that help to ensure this rule is never broken

It takes complicated things like specialist fibre blends and advanced processing techniques – but the result is simple: fabrics perfectly designed for cleaning, packaging and preservation.

We’ve been creating bespoke hygiene products for highly regulated markets for more than 50 years. In that time our virtuoso team has developed ‘clever’ fabrics much used in anti-microbial packaging, cleaning wipes and ostomy pouches.

Naturally, you need an intimate understanding of how fabrics improve functionality and performance in hygiene products to excel in this field. Not to mention how to adapt nonwoven technology to meet specific requirements, test protocol or industry regulations.

But for the handful of us who do, the future is looking extremely healthy.
