Lenzing and NBond Forge Sustainable Partnership, Revolutionizing Flushable Nonwoven Products in China and Beyond

In a groundbreaking move towards sustainable hygiene solutions, global textile fiber manufacturer Lenzing and flushable product innovator NBond Nonwovens have announced an exciting strategic partnership. Their collaboration aims to accelerate the utilization of Veocel lyocell fibers derived from wood in a wide range of flushable nonwoven products, including moist toilet tissue, feminine hygiene products, and other personal care items.

The partnership marks a significant milestone for both Lenzing and NBond, who have been working closely for over a decade. By joining forces, they are set to revolutionize the industry’s sustainable development and bring eco-friendly alternatives to mainstream markets.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with NBond as we continue to pioneer the sustainable development of the industry,” expressed Steven Tsai, Lenzing’s Senior Regional Commercial Director for nonwovens in Asia. “Our shared commitment to innovation and sustainability will drive the adoption of Veocel lyocell fibers, ensuring a greener future for flushable nonwoven products.”

NBond, the first company to utilize the revolutionary lyocell shortcut fibers in flushable femcare products, has already made a substantial impact in China and the Asia-Pacific region. Collaborating with renowned household brands such as Kimberly-Clark, Vinda, and BabyCare, NBond has introduced Veocel lyocell fibers into a variety of flushable products that adhere to G4 guidelines and the National Standards of China for flushability of nonwoven materials.

The inclusion of dispersible Veocel lyocell fibers in NBond’s nonwoven fabrics enhances their strength in wet conditions, ensuring flushability without compromising the user experience. These innovative materials enable moist toilet tissues, sanitary napkins, and other personal care products to decompose easily after being immersed in water, meeting the highest standards of sustainability.

Lenzing’s technical support and consultancy services have played a pivotal role in helping NBond optimize the wetness, strength, thickness, safety, and overall sustainability of their nonwoven fabrics. Through this collaboration, NBond has developed a robust portfolio of flushable products that prioritize both comfort and care for consumers.

The strategic partnership between Lenzing and NBond represents a significant leap forward in the pursuit of sustainable solutions for the personal care industry. By combining their expertise and dedication to innovation, these industry leaders are poised to drive positive change in China and beyond, ensuring a more environmentally friendly and responsible future for flushable nonwoven products.

With Lenzing and NBond at the forefront of this sustainable revolution, consumers can look forward to a new era of flushable products that not only provide exceptional performance but also contribute to the well-being of our planet.
