Ultra-absorbent materials for the hygiene industry.The hygiene industry relies heavily on absorption materials. Baby diapers, female hygiene products and incontinence diapers are currently made of absorbent polymers which do not absorb liquids quickly enough.
ReSens has developed a novel polymer with a 62% increased absorption capacity compared to existing solutions. Next to that, we have patented our own production method. During the production process, the ReSens polymer fixes the granulate to a fiber in such way that it establishes an even distribution of the liquid. ReSens technology saves up to 50% of the standard amount of absorption granulate, flattens the surface of hygiene products, speeds up the absorption time, and enhances comfort.
