Soft Sandler nonwovens are gentle on the skin, thus increasing comfort in use, particularly in direct contact, and preventing skin irritation. They may be adapted to the requirements of the specific application by ways of different product structures and surfaces.

One way of testing softness is the cup-crush-method according to WSP 402. During this test, the nonwoven sample is placed over the top of a cylinder in a testing apparatus and pushed in using a hemispherically shaped piston. The force necessary to push in the nonwoven is measured.
