Effect of thickness of absorbent
core on protective performance
To study the effect of thickness
of the absorbent core on protective performance, thermal bonded nonwovens were
made of SAF content 20% and basis weight 200 g/m2. Thickness of the
absorbent core was varied from 4 mm to 8 mm. Amount of water added was 400%.
Tests were carried out at 1.0 kW/m2. Figure 7 shows the effect of
change of thickness.
