High-Loft, Ultra-Soft Hygiene Solutions
ExxonMobil has a long and rich history of bringing both materials and solutions to the nonwovens industry. In listening to, and working with the value chain, we were aware that the industry wanted tailorable solutions that could deliver lofty thickness, cottony softness, and a smooth touch. This presentation will highlight the work done by ExxonMobil to develop high-loft, ultra-soft solutions. This presentation will also uncover tools developed to both measure loft, and characterize aspects of lofty nonwovens such as their compressibility and resiliency.
