Sustainability is increasingly important for personal hygiene products, such as baby diapers, feminine care, and adult incontinence items. Sustainability encompasses material selection, efficient processes, packaging, and disposal. Adhesives enable the efficient bonding of diverse materials, including bio-based options like cotton, cellulose, or bamboo, as well as recycled materials to advance sustainability goals.
