The HySorb® portfolio offers the right solution for all kinds of diapers

Different diapers require different absorbent cores, and the materials that these diapers are made from are tailored toward the respective application like baby diapers, adult incontinence products and feminine care products.

Accordingly, BASF has a variety of SAP offerings tailored to specific hygiene articles to ensure optimal performance: From high-fluff to fluff-free diapers, our HySorb® portfolio offers the right solution for all kinds of diapers. BASF's expert team provides a technical service to assist customers.

BASF's superabsorbent polymers (SAP) are engineered to have different primary properties:

  • Capacity: ensuring the ability to absorb
  • Absorption against pressure: retaining fluid under load
  • Permeability and wicking: allowing liquid transfer through a swollen layer of gel
