Superabsorbent polymers (SAP)

Baby diapers are high-tech products.

Evonik with superabsorbents is since mid-1990 active in turkey. Evonik Ticaret serves global baby diapers producers and also mid-sized turkish companies. Evonik is one of the world’s largest producers of superabsorbents. FAVOR® superabsorbents are the key material in the success of disposable baby diapers, incontinence and hygiene products. The powdery polymers absorb and hold up to 500 times their own weight in liquids and won’t release it, even under pressure. The required effect can be achieved with just a few grams of superabsorbents. In recent years our research scientists and application technologists have developed increasingly high-performance, high-tech polymers for thinner diapers, feminine hygiene, and incontinence products and they are constantly working on further innovation in this field.
