Apr '08
At this year's INDEX in Geneva, the RKW-Group will be presenting its new RKW ProLife brand to the public for the first time. It is one of the five new divisional brands which the company introduced at the start of 2008 and which encompass the particular range of products and services for a Strategic Business Unit.

RKW ProLife symbolises all of the products and services relating to hygiene and medical applications. Customers benefit from the expertise and experience in the development and manufacturing of components for diapers, feminine hygiene products, personal care and industrial wipes, incontinence products, wound care, films and nonwovens used in the operating theatre and much more besides.

The brand will present its complete product range at the 207 m2 trade fair stand 1651 during the prestigious international trade fair held on Lake Geneva.

RKW HyJet – the new generation of hydroentangled spunbond nonwovens

In the spring of last year, RKW expanded its product range to include hydroentangled spunbond nonwovens which are produced at the Halberstadt and Gronau Business Units and can be laminated to different types of film to create innovative solutions. In contrast to thermal bonding, which reinforces and bonds the fibres together using heat, this method operates with jets of water which join the continuous fibres together using high pressure.

This results in very soft yet tear-resistant nonwovens which can be dyed in all colours and can be statically charged. As they are more voluminous than conventional nonwovens at the same grammage, they are particularly suitable for producing disposable towels or pads (wipes) that are used in personal care and in baby care, but also for industrial applications.

RKW AG Rheinische Kunststoffwerke is one of Europe`s leading manufacturers of polyethylene and polypropylene films, nonwovens and nets.
