About Airlaid Nonwovens

Airlaid nonwoven is a textile-like material categorized as a nonwoven fabric

Airlaid nonwoven is a textile‐like material categorized as a nonwoven fabric. Unlike other fabrics, the fibers in a nonwoven are not weaved together on a loom but laid on top of each other. And unlike conventional papermaking processes, fibers are formed into a web using air instead of water, and can be cellulose (pulp) fibers as well as synthetic short‐cut staple fibers. Airlaid nonwovens also provide significant value as fluff pulp is relatively inexpensive compared to other natural and synthetic fibers used in other nonwoven fabrics.

Georgia‐Pacific uses a number of technologies to bond the fibers together in its airlaid nonwovens including:

● LBAL (Latex Bonded Air Laid) — polymer emulsions used to bond fibers together. Can add functional properties;

● TBAL (Thermal Bonded Air Laid) — thermoplastic fibers are melted to bond web. These materials can be pulp free; and

● MBAL (Multi Bonded Air Laid) — uses a combination of bonding technologies
