    Airlaid Technology from CAMPEN: Flexible, Efficient and Sustainable Production Solutions

    Uncover the potential of airlaid technology, whether you are new to this sector or looking to expand your knowledge.

    Airlaid technology is used to produce a highly absorbent, soft and flexible nonwoven material, which is used in a variety of industries ranging from hygiene products to automotive interiors.

    What is airlaid?

    Airlaid is a nonwoven fabric made by dispersing fibers in an air stream and condensing them onto a moving belt through air pressure. Unlike traditional woven or knitted fabrics that interlace yarns, airlaid materials offer a web-like structure. This allows for a high level of absorbency and tensile strength, making it ideal for products like baby diapers, feminine hygiene products, cleaning wipes and even certain types of insulation and filtration applications.

    With CAMPEN’s ground-breaking airlaid technology, expertise and knowledge of the airlaid process, we offer our customers technical solutions for traditional airlaid materials, but also a sustainable alternative to traditional plastic and cardboard packaging products for the food industry.

    CAMPEN offers high-quality machinery and expert knowledge within airlaid production

    With CAMPENs airlaid technology you can produce a wide range of high-quality airlaid products.

    With CAMPEN’s airlaid machinery you can produce traditional airlaid products as well as dry molded airlaid products and packaging – both through a more energy-efficient process as well as through the use of natural and biodegradable raw materials

    Why choose airlaid?

    • High absorbency: airlaid materials can absorb multiple times their own weight.
    • Soft and flexible: airlaid fabrics are incredibly soft and can easily adapt to various shapes and forms.
    • Sustainable: the process can incorporate recycled or natural fibers, offering eco-friendly options. In contrast to the water-intensive processes used in traditional paper and cardboard production, the airlaid process relies primarily on air. This significantly reduces energy and excessive water consumption in the production process. Furthermore, since the airlaid technology is crafted from natural wood fibers, the material is 100% compostable and biodegradable.
    • Customizable: additives like superabsorbent polymers, fragrances or antibacterial substances can be easily integrated into the airlaid material during production.

    Are you considering producing airlaid in-house?

    Explore our customer case study to learn how Magic Srl transitioned to in-house airlaid production, achieving control over their processes, enhancing sustainability and quality and maintaining competitive prices for their customers.

    Key ingredients in airlaid production

    1. Fibers: pulp, synthetic fibers or a mix are the main ingredients.
    2. Bonding agents: latex or other thermoplastic materials are used to bond the fibers.
    3. Additives: superabsorbent polymers, antibacterial agents etc., depending on the end use.
    4. Natural fibers: our R&D team has successfully conducted prototypes using natural fibers such as straw or seaweed into the airlaid web, which makes for sustainable end products using natural fibers.
    5. Waste fibers: moreover, our R&D team has successfully conducted prototypes with waste fibers from production, such as cardboard and paper scraps. Consequently, the airlaid technology can also be used for upcycled products.
