Suominen wins the RISE® Durable Product Award

The RISE® Durable Product Award was presented to Suominen Corporation for FIBRELLA® Lite, a nonwoven product for absorbent hygiene products. The Award recognizes innovation in new commercial nonwoven durable products. The winner was announced at Research, Innovation & Science for Engineered Fabrics Conference on 28 January.

According to INDA, a nonwovens industry association, FIBRELLA® Lite is an example of the innovative application of technology allowing the matching of traditionally incompatible nonwoven features like strength, softness and light weight together in one material. FIBRELLA® Lite nonwoven meets the exacting requirements for a light yet stretchable material with strength and elongation properties required in laminates for absorbent hygiene products in baby care and adult incontinence applications.

“Suominen is honored to receive the prestigious RISE® Award for FIBRELLA® Lite, a lightweight nonwoven spunlaced product which offers softness, strength and high elongation necessary for today’s demanding customers,“ says Lynda A. Kelly, Senior Vice President, Care business area.

“Suominen’s long history in nonwovens specialty processes such as thermal bond, fiber spinning and spunlacing provided the depth of knowledge necessary to create this complex lightweight spunlaced product made with 100 % thermoplastic fibers, pushing the capability of traditional spunlaced production.”

“We thank INDA, RISE® committee and the attendees of RISE® Conference for this recognition,” continues Lynda A. Kelly.
