Technical Absorbents has been creating super absorbent solutions for numerous application areas since inception in the 1990s. In addition to being the world’s primary manufacturer of fibrous super absorbents, it has also positioned itself as a leading global innovator of super absorbent materials. It has its own needlefelt development line and also works with a large network of converters to create bespoke nonwoven fabric solutions to meet specific customer requirements. Its R&D team is also committed to bring to market new material solutions that not only meet market demand but also spark new concepts/ideas in the minds of industry players.
At SINCE, Technical Absorbents will be promoting a new washable nonwoven fabric technology that was launched at INDEX earlier in the year. 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. There are also many other potential applications for the fabric that are yet to be explored.
The company has also added a range of lowers basic weight fabrics to its portfolio, which have been developed with external converters. Ranging from 20-80gsm, the new fabrics are a fantastic addition for those customers searching for cost effective thinner fabrics that still offer high levels of absorbency.
“Asia is of huge geographic importance to us at Technical Absorbents,” explains commercial director Paul Rushton. “There is already a good understanding of SAFM in the region and exhibitions like SINCE allow more effective and direct communication with interested parties, and so it is essential that we have a presence.
“Over the past few years, we have further developed our super absorbent product offering, and we are looking forward to some interesting discussions during the event.”
