Our specially engineered breathable nano-membrane film enhances the breathability of our pads by 20,000x and has 6x the moisture vapour transmission rate compared to conventional brands. Breathability is one of the key factors in helping minimize skin irritations and unpleasant odors caused by less breathable pads.
The breathable nano-membrane is a web structured fabric where multiple layers of nanofibers are applied three-dimensionally ensuring liquid resistance and outstanding breathability. The nanofibers have a thickness of about 1/500th of human hair, approximately 300nm. The breathable nano-membrane provides 100% waterproofness and outstanding breathability with over 85% porosity.
Most conventional brands try to minimize their costs by using a polyethylene layer that provides strong leak protection but is less breathable. This layer traps the bacteria in the blood inside the pad and overtime, the bacteria begins to breed more rapidly due to the lack of oxygen. Bacteria is one of the main causes of skin irritations and unpleasant odors. Breathability is key to accelerate the absorption rate and slow down bacteria growth.
