AHC leads drafting of the flushable nonwoven materials standard

13 Sep 2021

China National Textile and Apparel Council (CNTAC) officially released the "Test Method and Evaluation for Flushability of Disposable Sanitary Nonwoven Materials."(GB/T 40181-2021).

The standards apply to the biodegradable and dispersible disposable sanitary non-woven materials and specify the test method and evaluation.


American Hygienics Corporation (AHC) played a leading role in the drafting, whose development team has been exploring innovations and application developments of nonwoven materials and eco-sustainable solutions

"We've learned a lot from what's going on in more advanced markets of where they have undergone problems with mislabeling of such products that don't comply with regulations or make a false claim," said Nilesh Parmar, CEO and Founder of American Hygienics Corporation. "There was no real flushability regulation, so standards are necessary for future growth. With a proper standard in place, the industry will be regulated and policed. I am extremely honored that AHC and my team could be part of this, and we are confident that this standard may soon become widely adopted."

The new standard will have a significant impact on wet wipes manufacturing and innovation, this also posed great opportunities in product needs and immense challenges in exploring new models of industry practice.
