The most widely used cleaning wipes are baby wipes. Whether wiping face or hands on the go or cleaning the skin when changing diapers, wet wipes soaked with cleaning or nourishing lotions can be used in many ways.
Baby and body care wipes are mostly hydroentangled carded nonwovens. The fibers used are either polyester/viscose blends or biodegradable fibers such as cotton, viscose or lyocell.
Truetzschler Nonwovens supplies all components needed for the classic manufacturing process - equipment for fiber preparation, formation of carded or crosslapped webs and subsequent hydroentangling, drying and winding.
So-called CP products are a new generation of sustainable, biodegradable care wipes. Carded/pulp nonwovens are composite products: a wet-laid and a carded web layer are bonded with high pressure water jets. Proven solutions include the wet-laying technology by Voith, combined with Truetzschler Nonwovens' NCT high-speed card as well as the AquaJet and multi-drum dryer.
