About us

Technical Absorbents

For over 20-years, Technical Absorbents Ltd has been at the forefront of the fibrous superabsorbents industry with its unique Super Absorbent Fibre (SAF™) technology. SAF™ can rapidly absorb 200 times its own weight in water and 60 times its own weight in saline extremely quickly and is used globally in a wide range of applications, e.g. medical, cable, food packaging, hygiene, apparel and filtration. Although SAF™ remains at the heart of the business, it is the wide range of washable and disposable SAF™ fabrics that are now capturing the imagination of product designers.

SAF™ is a soft superabsorbent fibre that can rapidly absorb 200 times its own weight in water and 60 times its own weight in saline. The fibre is manufactured in three standard staple lengths – 6mm, 52mm and 80mm – to suit different conversion technologies. All of the fibres are 10decitex. 

The fibres can be converted into a wide range of superabsorbent SAF™ 
fabrics and SAF™ spun yarns for a wide range of applications. Distribution is uniform, resulting in consistent absorption performance. The creation of respirable particles is minimal during conversion compared to other superabsorbent technologies. 

Washable and disposable superabsorbent SAF™ nonwoven fabrics are available:

- Superabsorbent SAF™ Needlefelt Fabrics 
- Superabsorbent SAF™ Airlaid Fabrics 
- Superabsorbent SAF™ Thermo-Carded Fabrics 
- Superabsorbent SAF™ Netting Fabrics 
- Superabsorbent SAF™ Washable Fabrics 
- Superabsorbent 100% SAF™ Fabrics
