New possibilities

Vistamaxx™ propylene-based elastomer (PBE) can help meet many of the challenges brand owners and converters in the nonwovens industry face.

Brand owners are often driven by consumers of personal hygiene products looking for good soft-touch, excellent fit and low weight at an affordable price. They must also take into account that the perception of softness varies from region to region. This has resulted in many brand owners looking for solutions that provide softer fabrics without compromising fabric strength and durability.

Brand owners also look for alternative materials that offer cost-effective elastic solutions. Furthermore, they need to deliver enhanced aesthetics and breathability combined with better comfort and fit.

At the same time, nonwoven converters look for innovative ways to introduce differentiated products that address the needs of multiple application sectors. These include products that deliver cost-effective functionality to meet customer needs as well as the ability to tailor the properties of fabrics to meet specific applications.

Vistamaxx PBE was developed to inspire innovation. It can create new possibilities for brand owners and converters to address these needs. Nonwoven products, including personal hygiene products, elastic hygiene films, medical applications, and consumer and industrial products, can all benefit from Vistamaxx PBE.

Design flexibility, new levels of performance, simple construction, low total cost solutions and potential sustainability benefits* add up to one thing – new opportunities for growth.

Vistamaxx PBE can make it easy to enhance and tailor the properties of nonwoven fabrics.


Vistamaxx PBE can easily integrate with your existing production process, allow simplification of formulations and give you more design freedom.

reducing total cost

Vistamaxx PBE can decrease material cost by helping to eliminate the need for adhesives and other bonding processes and can be a more cost-effective alternative to styrenic block copolymers (SBC) and thermoplastic urethane (TPU).

potential sustainability benefits

Vistamaxx PBE can help reduce material use and waste, as scrap can be recycled within the manufacturing stream.
