Super Absorbent Flake
Before the introduction of super absorbent flake the only 'super absorbent' choice was polyacrylate (also known as diaper fill). Polyacrylate mixed with pulp fill has two major drawbacks; it is a very hazardous substance for the workforce who make the absorbents, and it also becomes extremely slippery and seeps out of the outer containing fabric resulting in a huge slip hazard when wet. For these reasons ESP US was not prepared to use this substance in any of our products.
Super Absorbent Flake is a new product technology and has many benefits. First and foremost it is completely inert and not harmful, secondly it absorbs and holds liquids without any of the slippery or leaking gel problems. Another excellent feature of this new technology is that because it is inert the flake is able to absorb most hazardous chemicals. So not only is Super Absorbent Flake the world's first super absorbent for chemicals, it also out performs more traditional Universal and Chemical sock and pillow absorption rates by up to 50%!
Super Absorbent Flake socks absorb huge amounts of water-based liquids such as solvents, hazardous chemicals, and every day spills such as milk or juice. Their most impressive quality is that they can soak up and retain virtually all liquids and are classed as a Chemical absorbent. They have a strong spun-bond cover and are available in both Universal and Chemical types.
