Stretch & Recovery



Product offering

SoftLite Stretch Components

  • Our SoftLite fabrics have excellent extension characteristics to work with stretchable films used in elastic laminates for diaper closure systems. Jacob Holm is the first to introduce a 100%PP spunlace material as low as 15 gsm, a dedicated grade for ultra light and extremely soft stretch ears.

SoftLite Topsheet

  • As hygiene products become thinner to increase comfort, the challenge emerges to make sure the product still feels soft. A spunlace topsheet is the excellent choice to improve softness.

SoftLite Backsheet

  • Our lighter weight spunlace portfolio opens the potential for the use of super soft materials at the number one point of connection for the consumer. Products at 20 gsm and below have been developed for use as backsheet fabrics

Jacob Holm is continuously developing new and innovative fabrics for the hygiene market. SoftLite fabrics cater to the need for lighter and softer hygiene products. With basis weights as low as 15 gsm, SoftLite fabrics provide the high performance and soft comfort end-users need. The key features of SoftLite include excellent stretch and recovery, ultimate softness at required strength, and skin sensitivity. Fabrics can be engineered for optimal fluid management.
