dc.description.abstractThis paper reports study on the development and characterization of baby diapers made from four different fibrous compositions, namely pure bamboo, pure organic cotton, bamboo/organic cotton (70/30), and bamboo/organic cotton (50/50). Antibacterial activity tests have been carried out on baby diapers against S aureus and E coli. Superabsorbent polymer sodium polyacrylate has been incorporated into the diapers to enhance their absorption capacity. Various tests such as product density, thickness, absorption capacity, liquid strike- through, acquisition time under load and diaper rewet under load have been carried out to study the performance of the diapers. It is found that the diaper made from bamboo/organic cotton (70/30) exhibits best performance.en_US
