What is in a TENA product?
|Part of product||Material||Function|
|Surface material||Fibre material made of polypropene/polyethylene polyester/viscose.||The product keeps you dry and comfortable by absorbing the liquid.|
|Acqusition layer||Porous material consisting of wood fibre or polyester fibre||Transports liquid from the surface to the center of the product, where the liquid is stored.|
|Absorbent core||Paper pulp, a combination of paper pulp and superabsorbents for pads and panty liners. A porous paper-based material is used in some products.||Absorbs and stores the liquids.|
|Adhesive||The adhesive consists of various polymers and synthetic resins.|
The adhesive has two functions:
|Backsheet material||Polyethylene film. A fiber material is used in some panty liners.||Prevents leakage.|
|Fastening material||Polymere materials||Keeps the product in place.|
|Elastic material||Polymere materials||Gives the product a good fit.|
|Fragrance(only certain products)||Perfume||Gives the product a fresh smell.|
|Ink||Emphasises the product's shape and function.|
|Release paper||Silicone coated paper.||A paper that protects the adhesive on the back of the product.|
|Single pack (regards certain products)||Polyethylene film, which is silicone coated in some products.||Protects the product so that you can carry a single product around without it getting dirty|
|External product packaging||Polyethylene bags or box.|
Protects the product. This is the package you see on the shelf in stores.
Renewable paper pulp: Pulp made of wood fibre from responsibly managed forests. The pulp is used in our pads and panty liners.
Fiber material (non-woven): A thin, textile-like material. The term is used in the textile industry for materials that are neither woven nor knitted, such as felt.
Polymers Large-chain molecules that can be either natural or synthetic. For instance, plastic as well as your DNA consist of polymers.
Polypropene/polyethylene/polyester: Some of the world's most common plastic types. Used in a wide range of everyday products, from underwear to blankets.
Superabsorbent polymer (SAP): Used for its moisture-retaining ability. Commonly used in pads, diapers and compresses.
Synthetic resin: Viscous liquids that harden quickly, making them ideal for binding together materials.
