Tredegar Acquisition Distribution Layers
An acquisition distribution layer accelerates the acquisition and distribution of
fluids to the core layer for increased consumer comfort and discretion, and drier,
healthier skin. The patented 3-D, polymer films of our AquiDry family of acquisition
distribution layers promote healthier, drier skin. Designed for maximum fluid distribution
and core absorption, AquiDry's structural integrity facilitates the development
of cost-effective, thinner, and discrete personal care products.
AquiDry's macroscopic cone shaped apertures rapidly channel fluid away from the
skin, where it is absorbed in the core layer. The cone design acts like a one-way
valve, trapping fluid in the core, reducing rewetting, and permitting faster strikethrough
even after repeated events.
- Exceptional fluid acquisition
- Excellent structural integrity
- Lower secondary and subsequent rewets
- Improved overall absorption and leak prevention
- Proven commercial success with multiple converters
Consumer studies of adult briefs and infant diapers with AquiDry film proved that
this product provides reduced leakage, drier skin, reduced skin irritation and redness
and less gel on cover stock surfaces.
