Golden Isles® Fluff Pulp

GP Cellulose fluff pulps are made from a coarse, bulky, long fiber with a low percentage of fines at four world-class facilities in Alabama River, Alabama; Leaf River, Mississippi; Brunswick, Georgia; and Foley, Florida. Golden Isles fluff pulp is acknowledged as a quality brand of fluff pulp used in a variety of absorbent applications, including baby diapers, feminine hygiene and adult incontinence products, airlaid nonwovens, pet pads and food-grade absorbent pads.

Absorbent products made with these fibers have optimum fluid retention, liquid distribution (wicking) and pad integrity. This is especially important with thinner products and with the use of super absorbent polymers.
