Airlaid webs offer a comparatively low density, improved softness and an absence of laminar structure. A variety of fibers and blends can be used with this technique, creating products suitable for a wide array of applications, particularly disposable absorbent uses such as baby wipes, cooking paper and diapers.

Originally devised as a way to make paper without using water, airlaid nonwoven technology uses latex emulsions and/or thermoplastic fibers for bonding, and to increase the material’s integrity and strength. 

Typically, airlaid processes deliver a paper-like fabric that is thicker, softer and more absorbent than paper. It also has greater resistance to tearing, especially when wet. Since tear-resistance is often an essential quality for the product application, inspection to detect surface defects and web tears is essential.
