INDA Announces 2011 Visionary Award Finalists

The Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry (INDA), Cary, N.C., has named five finalists for
the 2011 Visionary Award. The award, now in its tenth year, is presented annually to a new consumer
product that features nonwovens fabrics.

The finalists include: Manasquan, N.J.-based Global Safety First for its Readi Mask™ particle
respirator; Roswell, Ga.-based Kimberly-Clark for its Huggies® Jeans diaper with a blue denim look;
Chagrin Falls, Ohio-based Nutek LLC for its Simply Soy® biodegradable wipes containing soy-based
lubricants and eco-friendly cleaning agents; Cincinnati-based Procter & Gamble for its Pampers®
Swaddlers and Cruisers with Dry Max™ thin, highly absorbent diaper products; and Sheboygan,
Wis.-based Rockline Industries Inc. for its Flushable Moist toilet tissue that is more than
95-percent biodegradable.

“These five finalists represent the most significant advances in incorporating nonwovens
technology into consumer products and they are being recognized not only for their technical
attributes, but for their novel use of nonwovens fabric as well,” said Michael Jacobsen, INDA
Visionary Award coordinator.

The five finalists will make presentations at INDA’s VISION 2011 Consumer Products
Conference, to be held Jan. 10-11, 2011, in Carlsbad, Calif. Conference attendees will vote to
select the 2011 Visionary Award winner.
