Topic: Hydrophilization of technical fabrics without using chemicals. Hydrophilization for absorbent nonwovens and nonwoven mats.
Absorbent nonwovens and nonwoven mats: super-absorbent without chemicals, after hydrophilisation with GlowPlasma
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 hydrophilise nonwoven material without the use of chemical wetting agents of any kind.
