There is an old proverb that says, “If it isn’t broke, don't fix it.” If consumers are seemingly satisfied with the performance of your disposable feminine pads today, why should you consider making any changes in the future?
First, a consumer’s needs are always changing. Month to month. Day to day. Even hour to hour. Continuing to meet her needs may mean you need to take a look at your product designs from every angle.
From a pad attachment perspective, choosing the right adhesive can play an important role in her ongoing loyalty to your brand. From a business point of view, changing adhesives may create new opportunities for more efficient operations, greater flexibility, and increased profitability.
Not all pad attachment adhesives are created equal
Just because an adhesive may attach a pad to her undergarment, that does not mean the adhesive is the right fit for your product. You want a pad attachment adhesive that is as flexible and durable as your users—the ladies on the move, the exercise enthusiasts, the active sleepers, and more.
Additionally, low temperatures can interfere with adhesions. This can cause the pad to shift. In higher temperatures, adhesive becomes tackier and wets out on the underwear fabric. As a result, the chances of residue and tearing of the pad during removal is increased.
Fabric types, weaves, surface treatments, undergarment styles, and pad design preferences around the world also play significant roles in how well your pad attachment adhesive performs.
As you consider changing your feminine hygiene pad adhesive or introducing new disposable sanitary napkin designs, a product audit may be the most logical next step. Our specially trained adhesive experts are available to provide thorough audits upon request.
