Reducing Carbon Footprint thanks to Fiberlink™ 101S

FiberLink™ 101S has enhanced the range of calcium carbonate materials used to make nonwoven fibers for the production of disposable wipes for cosmetics, personal care and household products. FiberLink™ 101S enables manufacturers to reduce substantially the amount of resin needed to produce nonwoven fiber as well as providing additional or enhanced functionality to the nonwoven finished good. This new product improves both costs and the environmental impact of the finished product: adding 20% FiberLink™ by weight to nonwoven fiber results in a 10- 20% reduction in the raw material’s total carbon footprint.
