- What is it Used for?
Version 2 of the 4D Zorb Stay Dry Dimple CORE PUL uses a lighter weight backing fabric to make your final product slimmer and trim
Combining super absorbency, waterproofing and leak-protection into one.
We start with our thirsty Zorb Polyester Dimple LITE on one side, and laminate a hidden waterproof layer of 2-mil polyurethane film between it and our thin, light ProCool Lightweight fabric.
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.
Our Zorb three-dimensional engineered dimple pattern has great retention, superior hold, fast distribution of moisture and less leaking under compression. It absorbs 10 times its weight in under 2 seconds and soaks up 20 times faster than other materials (bamboo, cotton, hemp knits).
Super-wicking ProCool polyester fabric is uniquely engineered from premium hydrophobic fibers for extra protection from leakage.
Perfect for mattress covers, bed protectors, diaper changing stations and pet bedding.
CPSIA certified, meeting stringent standards by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on lead and phthalates and flammability.
100% eco-friendly, manufactured with no harmful chemicals or finishes in controlled conditions in American textile mills.
Unique process permanently melt-bonds our specially-treated TPU film to the fabric without toxic solvents. The process emits no toxic waste or VOCs that are harmful to the environment.
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.
The difference between the V1 & V2 versions is the fabric combination used to create the Zorb 4D Stay Dry Dimple CORE PUL fabric.
The V1 Zorb 4D fabric is made with the Zorb 3D Stay Dry Dimple LITE for fast absorption & stay dry feel, and a polyester backing with a hidden waterproof layer for leakproof protection.
The V2 Zorb 4D fabric is made with the Zorb 3D Stay Dry Dimple LITE for fast absorption & stay dry feel, and a lighter weight polyester backing along with a hidden waterproof layer for leakproof protection. We process the V2 fabric through an additional compression round to make the fabric slimmer.

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.
