Superabsorbents by Evonik

It's you. Appreciating every moment.

Did you know that one out of four women and one out of ten men will experience incontinence at some time in their lives? Although it affects so many people, incontinence remains a taboo subject.

Hardly anyone dares to speak about it. But we do – and we offer assistance. Our superabsorbent polymers are used in adult hygiene projects that offer safety and protection without ”putting on weight.” No one should be ashamed to use innovative hygiene articles to deal with a loss of bladder control. Even though most women turn to the familiar sanitary napkin, this is not the best approach. They are designed to absorb blood, which is much thicker than urine.

Feminine hygiene articles are designed to absorb liquid slowly. Faced with a ”surge” of urine, the pads are ”flooded” with more liquid than they can deal with. Our polymers, specially designed for use in adult hygiene products, are equipped to handle the job quickly and efficiently. The granulated crystals are capable of absorbing many times their weight in water, urine or other liquids. They are also designed to stand up to the weight of an adult, whether sitting or lying down, without releasing the fluid they have trapped inside.

Take advantage of today’s high-quality adult hygiene projects and feel better about yourself. Our research has even made it possible to give these products odor-fighting qualities. An ideal combination for all who suffer from a loss of bladder control yet don’t want to give up the freedom of being active and independent.
