Fluffless Core for Baby Diapers

fluffless_coreAll baby diaper manufacturers are looking for new and more efficient core structures. Up to now cores are made of a mix of fibers (generally fluff) and superabsorbent polymer (SAP). The firsts represent the matrix to stabilize the second and keep it more or less fixed into the core.

Moreover fibers have the function to distribute fluid along the core and bring to SAP something to swallow. After last developments and new SAP generations this fluff function has became less and less important.

Therefore a goal for all hygiene absorbent product producers is to eliminate usage of fluff and obtain a core made of SAP only. This would lead to a thinner core and less expensive product.
