SAF superabsorbent fibres can absorb extremely quickly up to 200 times their own weight in demineralised water and circa 60 times their own weight in saline. SAF fibres can be converted into nonwovens fabrics and spun yarns for a wide range of absorbent applications. SAF superabsorbent fibres are white and odourless. They look and handle like textile fibres and easily be converted into a wide range of superabsorbent nonwoven fabrics (airlaid,...
SAF fibres are routinely processed on all commercial needlepunch production equipment to create superabsorbent needlefelt fabrics. Such fabrics are capable of absorbing many times their own weight in water/saline.
SAF fibres can be processed on commercial carded production equipment to create ultra-thin absorbent carded thermobond superabsorbentfabrics. Such fabrics are still capable of absorbing many times their own weight in water/saline and locking it away inside their core.
SAF superabsorbent fibres can be processed, by all well-known staple fibre spinning systems, into swellable yarns that are able to absorb many times their own weight in water or saline. This makes them ideal for applications that require water-blocking or moisture management.
In addition to superabsorbents, we also manufacture a range of soluble fibres which dissolve rapidly and completely upon exposure to water. The fibres, which are white and odourless with the handling characteristics and appearance of a textile fibre, can be easily converted into a diverse range of nonwoven fabrics and spun yarn formats.
