SAF - Superabsorbent Carded Fabrics
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™ long staple fibre grades (52 mm) are typically blended with other synthetic fibres to manufacture ultrathin superabsorbent carded thermobond fabrics.
We have recently launched a number of new low basis weight carded fabrics, ranging from 20-80gsm. These are cost-effective thinner fabrics that still provide high levels of absorbency. This makes them ideal for hygiene and medical applications that require a high level of absorbent performance without the bulk. Such fabrics are lightweight, discrete, conformable and can be manufactured with a number of layers.
