Absorbent nonwovens and nonwoven mats: super-absorbent without chemicals, after hydrophilization with GlowPlasma

Technical nonwoven materials, such as those used in baby diapers and sanitary napkins, as well as nonwoven mats (e.g., for battery acids) require stable, long-term hydrophilic finishing, which is usually accomplished using penetration with chemical wetting agents over the whole surface. But if those wetting agents come in contact with baby’s skin or bodily fluids, irritation or skin problems often result. In the case of nonwoven mats, wetting agents often give rise to undesirable effects in contact with battery fluids.

Treatment with GlowPlasma now makes it possible for the first time to completely hydrophilize nonwoven material without the use of chemical wetting agents of any kind.
