Technical Absorbents is set to display new SAF superabsorbent fabrics at the International Engineered Fabrics Conference and Exposition (IDEA) 2019, in stand 1241. The event will be held from March 25-28, 2019, in Miami, US. Technical Absorbents, which is headquartered in the UK, manufactures and supplies super absorbent fibre materials, fabrics, and yarn.
The company will join hundreds of other companies at the event, which attracts nonwovens scientists, users, and senior thought leaders from the industry, who will be presenting their latest ideas and innovations to over 7,000 visitors, according to a press release on the expo.
“IDEA has always been a great event for us. 2019 is an exciting year for Technical Absorbents and SAF. Our development team has developed a number of new superabsorbent fabric technologies and we are keen to demonstrate these in Miami,” commercial director Paul Rushton said.
“Our washable nonwoven fabric range has been expanded. These are suitable for hygiene and other garments that require moisture management for either comfort and/or evaporative cooling. We now have a range of gsm variants to better suit individual product design requirements. Our first unique, fully maceratable, 100 per cent SAF fabric was launched towards the end of 2018. This range has now also been further developed with fabrics ranging from 240-420gsm. These are suitable for applications that require higher levels of absorbency, including hygiene and medical,” Rushton added.
“Finally, we also now have a complete range of ultra-thin, low basis-weight carded, hot air-through and air-laid nonwovens. These are ideal for products that require a soft, discrete absorbent core that still offers high levels of absorbency performance. We hope that we can share our new fabric portfolio with more people at IDEA, and create some exciting new ideas for their use,” Rushton said. (GK)
