Sandler AG, an innovative partner of the hygiene industry, has celebrated the 30th anniversary with a special booth design at this year’s INDEX, Europe’s largest trade show for nonwovens, which took place in Geneva last month.

According to the nonwovens manufacturer, the professional audience from all parts of the world engaged in discussions on new developments and the latest trends in the hygiene industry with the Sandler team.

“A catwalk of nonwoven innovations took centre stage and a multi-media screen showcasing the company’s new image trailer bridged the gap between people and technology,” the company reports. Sandler showcased products that are designed to fulfil varying requirements and support individual lifestyles.

Sandler catwalk

During the four-day fair, the Sandler catwalk saw a strong turnout of visitors from all over the world. The Sandler team from sales, product development and purchasing used the opportunity to meet with longstanding customers from the hygiene and wipes industry, as well as other sectors; suppliers, and other partners. Current projects, latest Sandler innovations, trends, and developments in the market were the subjects of these talks.

The INDEX show’s major focus, nonwovens for babycare and feminine care, were the most sought after items at the booth. Applied in various components of complex hygiene products, the textile all-rounders help increase comfort through high softness and further discretion in use through optimum functionality, the company reports.

Sandler presented a collection of extensible nonwovens. New developments for topsheets won visitors over with even higher softness and support fluid management with functional surface structuring, the manufacturer reports. “The new “canyon” structure, for example, makes the nonwoven even bulkier, while also increasing stability. It forms a sort of grooves on the surface for optimised fluid transport. New nonwoven distribution layers quickly transport the fluid away from the body and prevent rewet, for increased comfort and a sense of safety during use,” the company explains.

Wipes substrates

Sandler also showcased a wide range of wipes substrates for babycare, cosmetics, cleaning, and disinfection, which are said to unite high tensile strength with high softness for gentle care.

Apart from functionality and feel, visual differentiation is also a focus in wipes manufacturing, the company says. New Sandler designs unite appealing appearance with optimised function. “The new embossed design “square” for cleaning applications makes wipes even bulkier and enlarges the surface for even more efficient cleaning. New coloured substrates facilitate easy distinction between different applications,” the company comments.

Novelties for technical applications were also in high demand with the audience. Among them, the latest synthetic Sandler HVAC filter medium enAIRsave, which unites filtration performance and energy efficiency. The new sawasorb advanced absorber nonwovens for the transportation industry reliably dampen engine and driving noise. At a product thickness of 6 mm, they are said to meet acoustic requirements designed to be met by absorbers of about 15 mm thickness.
