K-SORB fabric, designed to manage moisture and keep wearers dry and cool, is now commercially available in Asia, after Technical Absorbents Ltd (TAL) launched the super-absorbent fiber at the CINTE Techtextil in China. TAL used the three-day exhibition as a platform to introduce and promote K-Sorb and its many other Super Absorbent Fibre (SAF)-based solutions.

K-Sorb (formerly KoolSorb) contains the company’s patented SAF and can be used in extreme conditions.

Technical sales manager Dave Hill said Asia is of huge geographic importance to TAL. “There is already a good understanding of super absorbent technology in the country and exhibitions like CINTE allow more effective and direct communication with interested parties, and so it is essential that TAL had a presence,” he explained.

CINTE Techtextil, a highly specialised nonwoven and technical textiles trade event and the only one of its kind in China, attracted a diverse mix of visitors from Asia in September.

The fiber solution provides unparalleled levels of absorption and retention of sweat, which in turn affords the wearer a cool, dry feeling.

“The composite structure of the K-Sorb material allows sweat to rapidly be absorbed from the body, providing a dry, comfortable feeling for the user,” explained Mr. Hill. “The sweat is locked away within the highly absorbent core, reducing wet back and the associated wet, clammy feeling.  In addition, a water proof outer layer reduces the risk of wet back onto outer garments, keeping the rest of the user’s clothes dry and fresh.

“The fabric is designed to work under extreme conditions, where normal evaporation is limited or prevented – such as under heavy protective wear or within a sealed environment. The ability of the material to absorb and retain many times its own weight in sweat, which still remaining dry to the touch, allows the user to maintain a cool, dry feeling for an extended period. It is also fully washable, allowing repeated use of the material.

In addition to K-Sorb, TAL also exhibited other fiber and converted fabric, yarn and tape solutions for a variety of applications, including agro and geotextiles, medical and advanced wound care, filtration, food packaging, and hygiene.
