Latest SAF™ solutions to be launched at INDEX

The world’s largest nonwovens exhibition will get underway in a couple of months and Technical Absorbents will have a presence again at the three-yearly event. INDEX will commence in Geneva on 4th April and the SAF™ (Super Absorbent Fibre) manufacturer will be displaying a number of new products at the four-day show on stand 1118.

In 2014, the global showcase for all that nonwovens has to offer, INDEX brought together 12,000 professional visitors from around the world and over 500 exhibitors. The 2017 edition will again welcome industry figures from around the globe who will converge at the Geneva Palexpo to see the latest cutting-edge advances in nonwovens technology and exciting perspectives on new applications areas.

Technical Absorbents has been creating super absorbent solutions for numerous application areas since inception in the 1990’s. As well as being the world’s primary manufacturer of fibrous super absorbents, it has also positioned itself as a leading global innovator of super absorbent materials. It has its own needlefelt development line and also works with a large network of converters to create bespoke fabric and yarn solutions to meet specific customer requirements. Its R&D team are also committed to bring to market new material solutions that not only meet market demand but also spark new concepts/ideas in the minds of industry players.

At INDEX, Technical Absorbents will be promoting a new washable nonwoven fabric technology. The material, when used as a core within protective outer materials, can be laundered and dried with minimal absorbency loss. Such a fabric has been developed as a solution for different industry sectors including hygiene and apparel. There are also many other potential applications for the fabric that are yet to be explored.

The company has also added a range of lower basic weight fabrics to its portfolio, which have been developed with external converters. Ranging from 20-80gsm, the new fabrics are a fantastic addition for those customers searching for cost effective thinner fabrics that still offer high levels of absorbency.

“Over the past three years, Technical Absorbents has really been committed to furthering its product offering and strengthening its position in the industry as a super absorbent solutions provider,” explains Commercial Director Paul Rushton.

“What will be displayed at INDEX is just a small part of what has been achieved. The company is proud to offer a bespoke service to customers and many projects involve a brief and the development of custom made solutions that provide a performance advantage through the employment of SAF™ technology. However, it is important that innovation continues and the company brings to market new and exciting ideas that stimulate customers’ own development projects.

“INDEX is of prime importance in our marketing calendar and we look forward to sharing our new developments with as many visitors as possible.”
