SAF™ Washable fabrics provide the same high levels of absorbency as our disposable fabrics but can be washed and re-used. This makes them ideal for washable hygiene applications, including intimate wear and bed-mats, and also functional apparel.To withstand laundering, the SAF™ Washable fabric must be positioned between two outer layers, thus creating a three-layer fabric. The outer fabrics can be tailored as required to suit product design and functional requirement, e.g. one layer can be waterproof and the other water permeable. Once in a final fabric construction, studies have indicated minimal absorbency loss of 20% after 40 wash cycles.
 The range includes total weight, core weight and outer facing variants. Anti-microbial, flame retardant and anti-odour finishes can also be added during the manufacturing process.
 The fabrics range from 190-450gsm and are typically a blend of SAF™ and other synthetic fibres.
