3M™ Non-woven Landing Zone is a soft, flexible non-woven material that is gaining momentum of choice for use on disposable baby diapers. It is a lightweight, economical alternative to knitted loop that provides greater softness. Our breathable material enhances baby comfort and provides a secure closure system when combined with many 3M™ Hooks and Hook Laminates.
3M™ Non-woven Landing Zone helps Your Profit Zone
Market leading brands are shifting from knitted loops to the softer Non-woven landing zones. They realize that parents want to diaper their babies in the most gentle-to-skin products available with diaper components that look and feel softer. These same parents also regard secure closure and containment reliability as the most important performance criteria. However, they continue to search for affordable solutions. 3M™ Non-woven Landing Zone products offer features that can help your facility achieve cost effective and efficient manufacture of your disposable diaper line.
Our Non-woven Landing Zone provides good shear and peel performance in packaging/quantity forms that help reduce manufacturing costs while PSA and non-PSA versions help meet various manufacturing options. We also utilize pre-combined, adhesive coated construction that offers simplified diaper line processing with traditional tape applicator equipment – no equipment upgrades. In addition to cost effective benefits, our Non-woven components are fabricated to provide optimum softness and are available in both print and unprinted versions to meet market preferences.
Increased Comfort and Manufacturing Efficiency
At 3M, we understand the dynamics of how hooks engage with Non-woven substrates, and we can optimize performance based on your requirements. Our improved manufacturing efficiency with longer roll lengths, from 3700m to 5200m (in 40in OD rolls) means approximately 40% fewer roll changes, which may help reduce warehouse space, shipping costs, waste and splicing, helping you keep production lean and green.
Production Minded, Quality Oriented
Our 3M™ Non-woven Landing Zone is designed to work best when paired with 3M™ Hooks and Hook Laminates. They work in tandem to provide a softer, more secure and reclosable system for your baby diaper product lines. Because not all hooks work with all non-wovens, 3M has the expertise to make the right recommendations for you. And our global supply network ensures availability so your production schedules can be as reliable as the diapers you produce.
