SAF - Superabsorbent Needlefelt Fabrics
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 long staple fibre grades (52 mm) are typically blended with other synthetic fibres to manufacture superabsorbent needlefelt fabrics. Webs containing up to 80% SAF can be produced at a wide range of fabric weights, typically between 150-1,000gsm. Laminates and other finishes are also possible. We also manufacture a range of fabrics that are washable when protected by outer layers.
We have our own development/commercial needlefelt line and can produce fabrics up to 2.0 metres wide. SAF can be blended with a wide range of other fibre types to produce specialist fabrics in the perfect environment.
Short order trial runs can be facilitated where commercially viable.
