SAF™ – A Viable Superabsorbent for Ultra-thin Hygiene Products

Zacky Lam, SAF

  • Superabsorbent have been synonymous with the disposable hygiene industry for many years, with the sector long-dominated by powders and granular technology. However, as end manufacturers continuously strive to deliver more innovative, thinner, softer and absorbent hygiene products, increased interest has been experienced by fibrous superabsorbent (SAF™) manufacturer Technical Absorbents.
  • When compared to the more mainstream technologies, what benefits can SAF provide? i.e. how the fibers can be processed into very low basis carded, hot air-through, airlaid and needlefelt fabrics, how uniform and consistent the integration of the superabsorbent is in resulting fabrics, and how such fabrics negate the dusting, shedding and gel leaching commonly experienced with other technologies.
