CARY, NC -- INDA has announced this year’s finalists for INDA’s prestigious Hygienix Innovation Award™ for their novelty, uniqueness, and technical sophistication. These finalists include:
  • H.B. Fuller’s Conforma™ Adhesive
  • Kimberly-Clark Corporation’s Kleenex® Exfoliating Cushions
  • Sustainable Health Enterprise’s (SHE) Go!™ Pads

H.B. Fuller’s Conforma™ Adhesive

According to H.B. Fuller, this unique, stretchable adhesive can be used in place of elastomerics to create a stretch feature in disposable absorbent products.

It opens up new opportunities for manufacturers to design the next generation of more underwear-like, all-over stretchable incontinence products. The adhesive can be applied in-line and when combined with an extensible nonwoven it creates a conformable fabric that has high extensibility, softness, and easily stretches and retracts.

Other finalist are Kleenex® Exfoliating Cushions which include a dual-sided cushion with one side that gently exfoliates with a textured nonwoven and a second side with a buffing texture printed on a non-woven to smooth and polish skin. And, SHE’s Go!™ Pads featuring an absorbent core made from banana tree agricultural waste to maintain superior absorption without using any chemicals and super-absorbent polymers.

Hygienix Innovation Award™

In its debut last year, Hygienix attracted over 600 leading professionals and excitement is mounting for a repeat strong turnout. Over three-and-a-half days, the newest and latest technologies, innovations, and advancements in this important and growing nonwovens segment will be spotlighted at Hygienix.

The winner will be chosen by the Hygienix Conference participants, INDA’s Technical Advisory Board, and the Hygienix Conference Planning Committee, and announced on Oct. 27 at the Conference.

“This year’s finalists were selected from many nominations received across the entire spectrum of absorbent hygiene and personal care products. These products demonstrate the high level of sophistication and creativity in our markets today,” said Dave Rousse, INDA’s President.

“The finalists truly are the best of the best for expanding the use of nonwovens into new and exciting application areas. These leading companies raise the bar of excellence for all of us. Presenting the award is always an event highlight and this year won’t disappoint.”
