Microporous film "Porum"

Porum is a polyethylene microporous film that repels water but allows air and moisture to pass through. It is used mainly in sanitary materials such as disposable diaper backing sheets.
Porum is manufactured using Tokuyama’s proprietary biaxially-stretched tubular process to ensure a soft texture and good stretchability on both a horizontal and vertical axis. Our integrated production system, ranging from granulation to film formation, printing, and slitting enables us to maintain strict quality control as well as flexibility.
We also offer Lami Porum, a laminated film that can be combined with non-woven fabrics and cloth yarns.
