Eastman Regalite™ UltraPure hydrocarbon resin nominated for innovation award

Winner will be announced during Hygienix™ 2019 on Nov. 14.

KINGSPORT, Tenn., Nov. 4, 2019 – Regalite UltraPure from Eastman, a new class of clean tackifying hydrocarbon resins, is one of three game-changing products nominated for the 2019 Hygienix Innovation Award, which will be presented during the hygiene and personal care industry conference Nov. 11¬¬–14 in Houston.

The Regalite UltraPure resin family addresses consumer concerns associated with odor, volatile organic compounds and trace chemicals in the hygiene industry.

“We’re proud to be nominated for this award,” said Ramya Ramaswamy, Eastman’s global marketing manager for hygiene and packaging. “The need to create products that meet higher consumer expectations without sacrificing performance is a challenge for adhesive formulators. Regalite UltraPure can help them achieve these goals.” Hygienix™ 2019 is devoted to the latest in sustainable technologies, emerging markets, converting challenges, product and technical innovations, and market trends. It is organized by INDA, the Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, and will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Houston. The three finalists were nominated for using nonwovens and engineered materials in a creative, novel and technically sophisticated way. They were selected from more than 20 contenders by INDA’s Technical Advisory Board of technical professionals from member companies.

The other finalists are SMS Bico Fabric from Fitesa, a PE/PP spunbond and PE melt-blown nonwoven, and The FEUR System by Vemarei, an incontinence protection system.

Ramaswamy will give a presentation on UltraPure to more than 500 industry professionals on Nov. 12. Following a conference participant vote, the winner will be announced Nov. 14.
