Airlaid Technology from CAMPEN: Flexible, Efficient and Sustainable Production Solutions
Uncover the potential of airlaid technology, whether you’re new to this sector or looking to expand your knowledge.
Airlaid technology is used to produce a highly absorbent, soft, and flexible non-woven material, which is used in 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 airlaid technology, expertise, and knowledge of Airlaid process, we also offer our customers 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 CAMPEN’s airlaid machinery you can produce traditional airlaid products as well as sustainable airlaid products – 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 card-board 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 anti-bacterial substances can be easily integrated into the airlaid material during production.
Key Ingredients in Airlaid Production
- Fibers: Cellulose, wood pulp, synthetic fibers, or a mix, are the main ingredients.
- Bonding Agents: Latex or other thermoplastic materials are used to bond the fibers.
- Additives: Superabsorbent polymers, anti-bacterial agents, etc., depending on the end-use.
- Natural fibers: Our R&D team has successfully conducted prototypes using natural fibers such as straw or algrea into the airlaid web, which makes for sustainable end products using natural fibers.
- Waste fibers: Our R&D team has also successfully conducted prototypes with waste fibers from production, such as cardboard and paper scraps. Airlaid technology can therefore also be used upcycled products.
