C 100 Sudio  HySorb und Saviva  Superabsorber

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.

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

  •   Capacity: ensuring the ability to absorb large amounts of fluid
  •   Absorption against pressure: retaining fluid under load
  •   Absorption speed: for fast liquid uptake
  •   Permeability: allowing liquid transfer through a swollen layer of gel

With the right balance of primary properties, HySorb® superabsorbents help to reduce the risk of leakage by effectively absorbing, distributing and retaining urine in the diaper core, even under pressure. This ensures the skin stays dry and healthy.

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.


These days, it is difficult to imagine the world of modern hygiene without superabsorbents. Whether for baby diapers, incontinence or feminine hygiene products, none of them would be complete without the white polymer granules that ensure that the fluid is safely locked away and that skin and clothes remain dry and clean.
