Nonwovens Industry
The ongoing movement toward thinner disposable hygiene products means producers must take a completely different approach to core design. As core fluff is decreased or eliminated, core integrity becomes critical. Essential to core integrity are adhesives and the testing of both core integrity and absorption performance.

Textile World
Hologenix LLC has been developing and manufacturing what it calls "bio-responsive" textile materials since the early 2000s — first offering its mineral-infused products under the Holofiber® brand and more recently under the Celliant® brand.

Innovation in Textiles
Technical Fibre Products, a leading nonwoven manufacturer, presents dielectric nonwovens that can be used to help prevent galvanic corrosion, a common and destructive problem when aluminum or other metals come into contact with carbon fiber in a composite structure.
