Absorbent Pads are used in a wide variety of products ranging from packaging to pet care, and are found in settings from homes to hospitals. Construction varies depending on the use. They may or may not have a barrier sheet, moisture permeable top sheet, super absorbent, or sealed edges to create a side barrier. Regardless of the construction or use, the ability to collect and retain fluids is the key performance criteria for this class of product.
IPS can provide testing to help you understand the competitive landscape and how well your product competes, evaluate cost vs. performance trade offs, and evaluate how changes in material vendors may impact product performance.
