Ready-AbZORB – Our pioneering technology eliminates prewashing and drying normally needed to activate the super absorbency. It also reduces 60-80% of the shrinkage, so you get more fabric for your money.
It can be used on its own, not as an interlining so it's ideal for reducing cost, increasing product performance and supporting the environment
Absorbs 10 times its weight in under 2 seconds and soaks up 20 times faster than other material (bamboo, cotton, hemp knits)
Features SILVADUR™ Antimicrobial to inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungi and algae on the fabric, control bad odors and provide intelligent freshness protection
SILVADUR® is proven to be safe against the skin. Tests of bamboo, cotton and polyester treated with 10 times the recommended amount of SILVADUR® found no skin irritation or sensitization after multiple exposures.
Durable & reversible, it contains thirsty Zorb® 3D fibers between a face and back of super wicking polyester Stay Dry layers
Unique, three-dimensional engineered dimple pattern provides greater retention, superior hold, faster distribution of moisture and less leaking under compression
Perfect for single layer pre-folds, soaker, changing pads, fitted diapers, blankets, bibs, burp cloths, play mats and many more consumer, medical & incontinence products
2 layers will replace 8 layers of flannel, 6 of french terry and 5 of fleece.
All Zorb fabrics are super absorbent by virtue of their knitting construction; they are not made with SAP (super absorbent polymers), so their super absorbency lasts for the lifetime of the fabric.

Important Note about Absorbency in 3D & 4D Zorb fabrics:
These fabrics are designed to be absorbent and made without the use of any chemicals during manufacturing. Our Ready-AbZorb process helps eliminate the need for pre-washing for absorption and also reduces the shrinkage. However the fabrics are made in large batch sizes on industrial machines and sometimes the fabric may not absorb as desired from when you receive it, or sometimes after cutting and sewing. In such cases, we recommend running the fabric through a hot wash and medium dry cycle; this will help remove any handling residues and activate the super absorbent fibers that might have been affected by handling.
My mother and I have a rare, hereditary skin disease called Hailey, Hailey. It causes our skin to blister and weep in hot spots of our bodies and frequently results in painful fissures or secondary infections. We needed something absorbant AND antimicrobial to make groin, pit and underboob pads. Sorry for the TMI. I tried three types: cotton, bamboo, and this polyester. I found them all absorbant but the polyester was the most comfortable, moisture wicking, and quickest to dry of the three. I am coming back for more of this fantastic fabric that has been more helpful to me than any cream my Dr pushes on me.
