Technical Absorbents is set to display new SAF superabsorbent fabrics at Techtextil exhibition in hall 4.2, stand B20. The leading technical textiles and nonwovens trade fair will be held from May 14-17, 2019, at Messe Frankfurt, Germany. Technical Absorbents, headquartered in the UK, manufactures super absorbent fibre materials, fabrics, and yarn.
The main focus for the company will be the promotion of its growing range of superabsorbent SAF fabrics – predominantly its innovative washable or high durability products which, since launch, have attracted a large amount of interest from a variety of market sectors. The material, 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, the company said in a media statement.
“There has been an incredible amount of interest in our SAF™ washable fabrics. The soft and conformable nature of the fabrics makes them ideal for everything from washable intimate wear to moisture management layers within apparel items,” explains product development director Mark Paterson said.
“These fabrics are just one example of how we have taken our unique core SAFTM 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. 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 all our SAF technologies – fibres, fabrics and yarns – but also discover new opportunities for its application within the industry of technical textiles,” Paterson added.
