SAF™ Thermo-Carded fabrics are cost-effective, thinner materials that provide high levels of absorbency. They are lightweight, conformable, and can be manufactured with a number of layers. This makes them ideal for applications that require performance without the bulk, e.g. within cables for water-blocking.
The fabrics range from 20-80gsm and are typically a blend of SAF™ and other synthetic fibres.
SAF™ – a soft superabsorbent fibre – is the key component in all of our fabrics. SAF™ fabrics absorb water and saline rapidly with excellent retention levels. The SAF™ content does not shed when the fabrics are being cut and shaped for use. Learn more about SAF™
Fabric selection will be influenced by the final end use, but also many other requirements – absorbency, thickness, durability, and, often most importantly, budget. An experienced development team are on hand to offer advice and help with initial fabric selection for trials. Where possible, bespoke fabrics will be designed and manufactured to meet specific requirements. Contact us for more information
