DIAPER CONSTRUCTION

Overall Construction:

Disposable diapers have changed greatly during the past 30 years, but three basic design components are used in any diaper. A diaper consists of an absorbent core between a porous top-sheet and an impermeable back sheet. The top-sheet must do three things: it must allow the urine to flow through it, keep the liquid away from the baby’s skin, and retain the structural integrity of the absorbent core. Usually it is made of a porous, hydrophobic substance, for example, polyester or polypropylene non-woven fabric.1 The back sheet helps keep the baby’s clothing dry and is a nonporous, hydrophobic substance, such as a polyethylene film. The absorbent core takes in the liquid, distributes it to all regions of the core, and holds the liquid under pressure from the baby.

Just what makes up a disposable diaper?



Sodium Polyacrylate is a chemical absorbent used in disposable diapers. If you have ever used disposable diapers you have probably noticed a crystallized gel on your baby's behind at one time or another. If you take a disposable diaper, dunk it in water, and then pick it apart you will see tiny pieces of this gel crystal substance. This is what makes a disposable diaper absorbent! Today SAP is used in Adult Diapers bedpads as well as underpads which protect mattress or chairs from wetness. For more information on these types of Disposable products many web sites that sell these can help you with what is best for the situation.


Disposable diapers are made of mostly synthetic materials: including polyethylene film, polyurethane or lycra, polyester, polypropylene, cellulose and polyacrilate.
