One of the product design trends driven by both the consumer push for sustainability and rising material prices is the shift toward thinner cores with reduced or eliminated fluff.

One of the product design trends driven by both the consumer push for sustainability and rising raw material prices is the shift toward thinner cores with reduced or eliminated fluff.

We also understand the impact that core performance has on the market and can help hygiene manufacturers maintain and improve the end user’s experience – even with thinner cores. And, thinner materials mean less waste, reduced logistics requirements, and a smaller overall footprint, which is why H.B. Fuller developed specialty core adhesives that combine deep penetration with excellent wet strength and mechanical anchoring properties. This enables our customers to transition to thinner core designs without sacrificing core integrity, absorption, or rewet in the process. 

Core Adhesives that Enable Thinner Diaper Design

Specialty Core Adhesives for Thinner Cores
Our Full-Care® 7300 series specialty core adhesive was developed to maintain core integrity for thinner core designs with reduced fluff. Our specialty core adhesives are more effective than traditional construction adhesives in aiding the prevention of core breakage without unfavorable effect on its rate of absorbent capacity. 

Core Adhesives for Core Channels Bonding
For proven performance that enables a permanent channel creation in the absorbent cores, we recommend our Full-Care 7800 series with low odor, excellent dry peel performance, and wet peel strength.

Core Adhesive for Composite Cores
Our Full-Care 7600 series enables the construction of offline and inline composite core designs with or without traditional core wrap structure. These adhesives have excellent bonding performance to SAP before and after wetting and have potential for add-on reduction vs. industry standard adhesives. 

Stretchable Core Adhesive
H.B. Fuller’s Conforma™ stretchable adhesive series addresses article fit with less bulkiness. It also provides lift to a wet core without the need for specialized equipment beyond standard hot melt application equipment.
