Helsinki, Finland, 2015-01-28 11:00 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Suominen Corporation   Press release   28 January 2015 at 12:00 noon EET


Suominen, a globally leading supplier of nonwovens, is pleased to announce the launch of HYDRASPUN® Dispersible Plus, a new range of flushable substrates for the global wipes market.

In pursuit of excellence, Suominen continues to upgrade its flushable range of products.  The new Hydraspun® Dispersible Plus substrates break up over three times faster than the standard Hydraspun® Dispersible and clearly pass the INDA/EDANA 3rd edition flushability assessment test protocol. Suominen has filed a patent for the range of products.

Suominen invented the first commercial flushable product in the late 1990s to provide consumers with a suitable replacement to non-flushable materials like paper towels and baby wipes which are commonly flushed by the consumer.

Speaking about the Hydraspun® Dispersible Plus introduction, Kyra Dorsey, PhD, Product Manager, commented “It is wonderful to bring to the global wipes market an innovation which is the result of understanding the consumer needs, listening to our customers, as well as, considering the expectations of the municipal wastewater systems.”
