These superabsorbent fabrics are more robust than others within our range. They offer greater strength and integrity due to the nature of mechanical and thermal bonding (needling) used during manufacture. They are generally less dense but still offer the same great levels of absorption – this makes them an ideal for more demanding applications.
SAF™ Needlefelt fabrics are typically a blend of SAF™ and other synthetic fibres. Webs containing up to 100% SAF™ can be produced at a wide range of fabric weights, typically between 150-1,000gsm. Laminates and other finishes are also possible to achieve additional functionality.
SAF™ – a soft superabsorbent fibre – 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
