Trützschler's And Voith's Nonwoven Fabric Certified Flushable

Germany-based nonwovens machinery supplier Trützschler Nonwovens, part of Trützschler Nonwovens & Man-Made Fibers GmbH, and paper machine manufacturer Voith Paper, a division of Germany-based Voith GmbH, have announced that a nonwovens fabric produced using their jointly developed production process for wetlaid and hydroentangled nonwovens has been certified flushable by the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry (INDA), Cary, N.C., and the International Association Serving the Nonwovens and Related Industries (EDANA), Brussels.

The nonwoven fabric — produced using Voith's HydroFormer™ for web formation and Trützschler Nonwovens' AquaJet for web bonding — features cellulose as the raw material, and draws its strength from a small percentage of viscose fibers spun from the cellulose. Because the production process doesn't use binding agents or melt fibers, the fiber material is completely biodegradable, and the cloths can quickly disperse in water, the companies report.
