How Velcro® created a unique diaper fastener to outperform the market

Velcro utilized SynTouch® technology to:

  • Benchmark the diaper fastener market
  • Identify unique and unexplored user experiences
  • Prototype fastener concepts that elicit positive user experiences
  • Move forward with product innovation.

Both visual and tactile attributes for diaper fasteners were tested. One counter-intuitive discovery was that consumers wanted the diaper to feel soft, but the fastener needed to look strong. A typical comment: “If it’s too soft, it will never work.” Performance and measurable haptic criteria like this provided guidance and feedback for product innovation.
