  • Publication number: 20070026753
    Abstract: Differential basis weight nonwoven webs and a process for producing the webs is disclosed. In particular, the webs contain areas of higher basis weight and areas of lower basis weight. For instance, in one embodiment, the higher basis weight areas and the lower basis weight areas form alternating columns. The webs can be made according to a spunbond process or a meltblown process using a thermoplastic polymer or an air laid process using pulp fibers. The nonwoven webs are particularly well suited for use in diapers and other liquid absorbent products.

  • Publication number: 20050098256
    Abstract: High loft, low density nonwoven webs are produced by forming substantially continuous, spunbond, crimped, bicomponent fibers of A/B bilateral morphology in an unheated fiber draw unit. The fibers are then heated and cooled in the absence of impeding forces to achieve maximum crimp in the z-direction and produce a web of lofted material. The resultant material is particularly suitable for use as an insulator. Particulates may be added to the webs if desired.
