Global Market of Nonwoven Materials: Current State, Forecasts and Trends of Development
N.I. Ivanova, Candidate of Economic Sciences, Department of World Economy, Samara State University of Economics, R.B. Tuphatulina, Samara State University of Economics
Today, much attention is paid to the development of the production of consumer goods. it is planned to expand production of high-quality fabrics from natural raw materials using new chemical fibers and threads in the mail directions of economic and social development. The need for non-woven textile materials and cloths is constantly growing and the widespread use of chemical fibers of various origins and structures in their production allows programming special properties that open the textile fabrics to completely new areas of human activity. Thus, the production of non-woven textile materials will develop rapidly.
Wet wipes: in search of a new niche
It is difficult to enumerate all possible fields of wet wipes application. However, manufacturers move beyond. As a result, there are products, intended for the most diverse and, in truth, very unexpected needs, appeared in the market.
Flavors & Fragrances Market worth 24.13 Billion USD by 2022
Growing population, rapid urbanization, and increase in per capita spending on food and consumer products in emerging economies such as China, India, and Indonesia are driving the demand for flavors & fragrances. In addition, growing awareness among populations related to health and hygiene is expected to drive the flavors & fragrances market during the forecast period.
Torsten Huebner: We believe in Russian Business and Continue to Invest in it
Torsten Huebner, commercial director and Evgeny Balatsky, the national sales manager of Essity, said in an exclusive interview to our magazine about the plans of the company to develop hygiene products categories for everyday and professional use.
The rise of facial sheet masks
Facial sheet masks have numerous benefits, such as delivering active materials to the skin and skin moisturizing. The continuously growing market of facial masks has produced an increasing number of interesting developments. Innovations in sheet masks are on the rise, and formulators are searching for new materials that are safer for the skin and environment and sensorial pleasing.
Wipes and cloth from artificial materials: imitation of natural
A development of products that look and act as analogs from natural textil – one of the trends of the last years in the segment of wipes and cloth from nonwovens materials. In fact, there are wipes, cloth and towels made of artificial materials appear increasingly in the cleaning industry, but according to a manufacturers’ statement, they are comparable to cotton fabrics by the soaking level or with suede by the level of dust collection efficiency.
How to improve the long-term stability of wet wipes
A. Gaychenko, Rettenmaier Rus
Microcrystalline Cellulose (and) Cellulose Gum, Vivapur® CS TEX Wet Wipe is a natural stabilizer especially developed for wet wipes to stabilize all ingredients and to improve skin feel. Due to the very high thixotropic effect, it offers homogeneous stabilization and long term stability.
Cosmetic applications for nanofiber nonwovens
L. Frazier, SNS Nano Fiber Technology
Nanofibers have long been used in the filtration industry. With only a thin layer of nanofibers, the performance of the filter can be greatly enhanced. Nanofibers have also been investigated for use in medical applications, just as tissue engineering and wound dressings. Nanofibers can be produced via the electrospinning process, which is a process that was initially discovered in the early 1900s. The basic concept involved applying a high voltage to a polymer solution, at which point a jet is ejected from the tip of a reservoir and a randomly oriented nonwoven mat of nanofibers is collected. The resulting fibers have diameters under 1 micron, hence the name nanofibers. As the nanofiber matrix mimics the extracellular matrix found in the human body, it has also been developed for cell culture applications. However, due to the relatively slow process of electrospinning, for many years the only applications that were economically feasible were in these aforementioned areas. With the commercial scale-up that has come in recent years, a more highly productive method of manufacturing electrospun nanofibers is now available, which has enabled new application areas to be envisioned, one of which is cosmetic products. The two primary areas in the cosmetic industry that will be the focus of this article are the delivery of active ingredients to the skin using water soluble nanofibers as well as the decontamination of the skin using absorbent polyurethane nanofibers.
IT’S INTERESTING TO KNOW
Drawing inspiration from plants and animals to restore skin tissue
Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering have developed new wound dressings that dramatically accelerate healing and improve tissue regeneration. The two different types of nanofiber dressings, described in separate papers, use naturally-occurring proteins in plants and animals to promote healing and regrow tissue.
Fashion waste turned into multifunctional material
A research team from the National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Engineering has successfully devised a fast, cheap and green method to convert cotton-based fabric waste, such as unwanted clothing, into highly compressible and ultralight cotton aerogels. The researchers also demonstrated the application of this novel material to keep military water bottles cold and for effective control of rapid bleeding.
New European research project to produce biodegradable diapers
Billions of non-biodegradable diapers consumed worldwide and remaining every day in landfills represent a hazard to the environment. As diaper materials take 200–500 years to decompose, the necessity to produce diapers possibly 100% biodegradable is urgent. This is the aim of PolyBioSkin – European research project recently approved. By this project natural biopolymers and innovative non-woven tissues will be studied and realized to industrially produce biodegradable diapers, facial masks and advanced medications. 1-st half 2019 years
