Enabling a good and secure feeling
Optimal adhesion and skin compatibility are essential quality criteria for disposable baby diapers. Thus, high-performance adhesives are key success factors in the production. Henkel Adhesive Technologies is partnering with the machinery manufacturer A.Celli Nonwovens S.p.A (A.Celli) to offer customers in the hygiene industry expert knowledge and extensive technical service for smooth and precise processes.
Henkel supplies globally high-impact solutions for numerous hygiene products. Besides from the optimal adhesion, it is relevant to consider the reaction that different materials have on human skin. In the complex production of disposable baby diapers, nonwovens and plastic foil are bonded together. In this lamination process, the correct adhesive selection and optimal application methods must be ensured.
Based in Italy, A.Celli is a major machinery manufacturer in the worldwide hygiene industry. Baby diapers are laminated on sheets for up to 8 meters long with an operating speed of 1,000 meters per minute. Together with Henkel, the company offers to hygiene manufacturers expert knowledge on the complexities of the lamination and printing processes. “We are extremely pleased at the customer feedback and successful outcome of this outstanding cooperation with Henkel, one of our preferred partners,” explained Francesco Vergentini, Sales Director at A.Celli.
