Next Stop for SAF™ – ANEX

It has been a busy start to the year for SAF™ (Super Absorbent Fibre) manufacturer Technical Absorbents and it is now gearing up to exhibit at one of the world’s largest nonwovens exhibitions, ANEX. The three day event will take place in Tokyo between 6-8th June 2018 and the company is inviting people to explore SAF™ on its stand 534.

ANEX is organised by the Asian Nonwoven Fabrics Association in conjunction with nonwovens associations across Asia and is held every three years. It is an important event for Technical Absorbents, which is owned by China National Bluestar (Group) Co, Ltd., and a valuable platform to help raise awareness of its SAF™ technology in the Asian markets.

“This event is an ideal opportunity for us to educate the region’s growing nonwovens industry about the benefits of SAF™ fibre and fabrics,” explains Commercial Director Paul Rushton.

At the beginning of 2018, Technical Absorbents unveiled a new look for the SAF™ branding and this will be prevalent on the stand. The team will have with them different SAF™ fibre samples – long and short staple – a selection of SAF™ fabrics, including its latest low basis weight and washable grades, and will also have experts on hand to discuss potential bespoke development projects with visitors.

“Our new campaign is explore SAF™,” continues Paul Rushton. “We are asking people with an interest in absorbents, or those who work on projects that utilise such technology, to come and learn more about SAF™ while we are at ANEX. SAF™ has different properties to other super absorbents and as such can be handled and processed differently. It may also perform differently and provide additional benefits depending on the nature of the application.”
