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.
