Lenzing has announced a strategic partnership with Hangzhou Nbond Nonwovens to accelerate the application of wood-based Veocel lyocell fibres in flushable nonwoven products – from moist toilet tissue to feminine hygiene products and other personal hygiene products.

NBond is the first company to use the lyocell shortcut fibres in flushable femcare products.

“Lenzing has been working closely with NBond for more than a decade and the new strategic partnership represents a milestone for both companies as we continue pioneering the sustainable development of the industry,” said Steven Tsai, senior regional commercial director for nonwovens in Asia at Lenzing.

In China and Asia-Pacific in particular, NBond has collaborated with mainstream household brands such as Kimberly-Clark, Vinda and BabyCare on flushable products.

Dispersible Veocel lyocell fibrl help strengthen NBond’s nonwoven fabrics in wet conditions, ensuring flushability while improving user experience. Moist toilet tissues, sanitary napkins and other personal hygiene products produced by NBond which adhere to G4 guidelines and the National Standards of China for flushability of nonwoven materials can decompose easily after being immersed in water.

The technical support and consultancy service provided by Lenzing is enabling NBond to continuously optimise the wetness, strength, thickness, safety and sustainability in nonwovens fabrics, developing a strong portfolio of flushable products that focuses on comfort and care.
