Zorb

Zorb

Product description

Zorb Original is a non-woven, super-absorbent, breathable fabric that is intended to be sandwiched between other fabrics.  It is considered the industry standard for the absorbent fabric layer in manufactured incontinence garments as it absorbs 10 times its weight in under 2 seconds and soaks up 20 times faster than most other materials. For more information, be sure to click the Specs and Features tab below!Zorb Original is thin, lightweight and economical as it reduces the need to purchase disposable garments.  It is 100% free of PFAS (per fluorinated substances) and PFOAs (perfluorooctanoic acid) chemicals.  It should be stitched or serged between 2 fabrics.

Care Instructions

Wash in hot water, tumble dry on medium.  Do not use fabric softener or chlorine bleach.  Oxygenated bleach  (like OxyClean) is ok if required.  Detergent should not contain sodium percarbonate (the active ingredient in many oxygenated bleaches) or else you will risk overdoing it on your garments.  It should also be free of fabric softeners, natural oils, perfumes, dyes, UV brighteners, stain guard ingredients and enzymes.  If possible, choose zero-residue detergent as detergent residue will lead to leaking, less absorbency and odour.

What to Make

Use as the absorbent layer between the backing and face fabrics in reusable diapers, bed mats or moon cloths or in any other application requiring a highly absorbent layer. To watch Leslie's video on sewing up a quick bed pad, click here
