PGI announces high-performance value-added fabrics entry into Europe

15
Apr '08
Polymer Group Inc (PGI) announced that its break-through Spinlace material is being rolled out commercially for the first time by The Clorox Company in disinfectant household cleaning wipes.

The new and improved line of Clorox Disinfecting Wipes feature the company's high-performance, value-added fabrics made with a new nonwovens technology developed by PGI. The Spinlace process provides added strength, absorbency, texturing and other performance characteristics that enhances cleaning in the wipes.

The new Clorox wipes offers consumers a quick and easy way to effectively clean and disinfect by combining pre-moistened wipes with cleaners and disinfectants. These thicker, textured wipes with an imaged design made with PGI's proprietary Apex imaging technology deliver better cleaning based on comparison testing.

PGI is showcasing the new Spinlace fabrics at the INDEX08 nonwovens exhibition here (Booth 2131) and also announced that the materials will be available to the European market this year.

"Based on the positive response this break-through technology has quickly received in household cleaning wipes, we are excited to be expanding these fabrics into the European marketplace and into other categories," said Veronica "Ronee" Hagen, chief executive officer. "Spinlace fabrics answer a critical demand in the market for a new category of high-performance, value-added materials."

Next Generation Fabrics:
PGI developed Spinlace fabrics to bridge the gap between value and performance in wipes. Using a more efficient process that eliminates carded manufacturing steps, PGI is combining continuous filament, pulp and its proprietary Apex imaging technology to achieve the performance attributes customers want at competitive prices.

PGI can custom design attributes from softness to strength and liquid dispersability right into its material at lower weights to meet customers' requests.

Originally introduced in the U.S. market for consumer and industrial wipes, PGI plans to use the technology as a platform for growth in all markets it serves, which also include medical, hygiene and industrial segments.
