Nonwoven products are more and more common in every household globally.
For many of these nonwoven products, the hand feeling is an important quality parameter. Until now, no testing device has been existing, to determine this parameter objectively. The emtec TSA - Tissue / Nonwovens Softness Analyzer is a completely new method for the objective testing of the hand feel of nonwoven products. Originally, the device has been developed for the tissue industry (hygienic papers, such as toilet paper, facials or hankies), but it turned out that it can be used in almost exactly the same way for nonwoven products.
How does the device function, what is the technical background and for what applications can the device be used, this shall be the topic of this presentation.
