Suominen is launching Hydraspun Aquaflo as a nonwoven moist toilet tissue with better dispersibility offering near parity dispersion with dry toilet tissue but with premium thickness for a better consumer experience in use.

The product has passed the stringent standards for dispersibility set by both the International Water Services Flushability Group (IWSFG) and INDA/EDANA (GD4) in independent testing.

“This product’s 100% cellulosic fibre composition is evidence of sustainable origins and its capability to fully and rapidly break down in wastewater provides biodegradability in disposal, giving consumers an end-to-end eco-friendly solution for personal care,” said Andrew Charleston, manager of category management for the Americas. “Dry toilet tissue is recognised as the material most capable of breaking down in sewer systems and Hydraspun Aquaflo was developed with this result in mind, “

A second Suominen substrate, Hydraspun Regal, has received the Fine to Flush Manufacturer’s Generic Certificate from Water UK.

Hydraspun Regal also contains only cellulosic fibres and has a low-level carbon footprint due to its high pulp content.

Suominen was the first nonwoven substrate manufacturer to receive the Fine to Flush Manufacturer’s Generic Certificate from Water UK for Hydraspun Royal in Spring 2020.
