New Matarah Sorbents

The high tech ultrasonic bonding process is now being utilized by Matarah Industries, Milwaukee, WI, to produce a nonwoven sorbent material called "Matasorb" with what it claims is "superior strength and absorbency." The ultrasonic bonding process creates bonding points that force layers to come in contact with each other. These contact points distribute "absorbed" liquids throughout the different layers and into available void spaces.

The durable, multi-ply construction that is achieved through ultrasonic lamination is proven to be 600% stronger than its nearest competitor, according to Matarah. The new nonwoven construction resists tearing and allows for re-use up to 15 times. It also allows for re-use and recycling of the absorbed liquids. Matasorb is available in barriers, socks, booms, pads, rolls, sweeps and pillows.
