SAF™ Washable

SAF™ Washable fabrics provide the same high levels of absorbency as disposable fabrics but can be washed and re-used. This makes them ideal for washable hygiene applications, including intimate wear and bed-mats.

To withstand laundering, the SAF™ Washable fabric must be positioned between two outer layers, thus creating a three-layer fabric. The outer fabrics* can be tailored as required to suit product design and functional requirement, e.g. one layer can be waterproof and the other water permeable. Once in a final fabric construction, studies have indicated minimal absorbency loss of 20% after 40 wash cycles.

The fabrics range from 190-450gsm and are typically a blend of SAF™ and other synthetic fibres. Anti-microbial, flame retardant and anti-odour finishes can also be added during the manufacturing process.

Washable Fabric Example Diagram

SAF™ – a soft fibrous superabsorbent – is the key component in all of our fabrics. SAF™ fabrics absorb water and saline rapidly with excellent retention levels. Blood plasma can also be absorbed with greater resistance to solids blocking the surface. The SAF™ content does not shed when the fabrics are being cut and shaped for use. Learn more about SAF™

Fabric selection will be influenced by the final end use, but also many other requirements –absorbency, thickness, durability, and, often most importantly, budget. An experienced development team are on hand to offer advice and help with initial fabric selection for trials. Where possible, bespoke fabrics will be designed and manufactured to meet specific requirements. Contact us for more information

SAF™ Thermo-Carded

SAF™ Thermo-Carded fabrics are cost-effective, thinner materials that still provide high levels of absorbency. They are lightweight, discrete, and conformable and can be manufactured with a number of layers. This makes them ideal for personal hygiene applications that require performance without the bulk.

The fabrics range from 20-80gsm and are typically a blend of SAF™ and other synthetic fibres.

In addition, through air-bonded fabrics with high loft are available.

SAF™ Airlaid

SAF™ Airlaid fabrics are capable of absorbing many times their own weight in water/saline and locking it away inside their core. They are a popular choice for femme-hygiene and incontinence products.

SAF™ Airlaid fabrics are typically a blend of SAF™, wood pulp and thermal-bondable fibre. Airlaid webs within excess of 60% SAF™fibre content can be achieved at fabric weights of approximately 80-1000gsm and can be created with excess of 80% SAF™. Laminates and other finishes are also possible.
