Technical Absorbents, a super absorbent fibre manufacturer, will display the new washable super absorbent fibre (SAF) nonwoven fabric technology at TechTextil, the technical textiles and nonwovens trade fair. The trade fair, being organised at Messe Frankfurt during May 9-12, 2017, will cover the entire industry with its 12 application areas.
The new washable SAF nonwoven fabric 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 may be many other potential applications for the fabric that are yet to be explored, according to Technical Absorbents (TAL).
In addition to promoting its core product SAF, the company will also display a range of its super absorbent SAF fabrics, which are already used in a wide range of applications, and demonstrate the benefits provided by its SAF technology when used within advanced wound care, hygiene, filtration, packaging and cable applications.
"Innovation is at the heart of everything we do as a company. Events such as TechTextil not only allow us to promote the wide range of uses for SAF, but also discover new opportunities for its application within the industry of technical textiles," explains TAL commercial director Paul Rushton.
"Our washable fabric is one of TAL's latest product innovations and samples will be available to view during the event. It is just one example of how we have taken our unique core SAF fibre and, through creative product development, realised a unique fabric which can be integrated into a number of different products that require moisture containment/management," Rushton adds.
The event had attracted nearly 30,000 visitors in 2015. (SV)
