Dr. S Grace Annapoorani, RB Nivedha and S Yamuna Devi
Bamboo fibers are quite long which means there is less pilling on the fabric and used to improve the absorbency of the diaper and microencapsulated fragrant oil is coated on the third layer to avoid the irritation that may be caused by the oil. Fragrant oils used have good smell. Various properties such as pilling, abrasion, thickness, fabric weight have been carried out for bamboo nonwoven and run-off, absorbency, product fit test and thickness have been carried out for the developed baby diaper. Normally, diapers are made of three layers but the present study is design of diaper which has four layers such as spunbond polypropylene nonwoven, absorbent core comprising of Super Absorbent polymer, spunlace bamboo nonwoven finished with fragrant oil and meltblow polypropylene nonwoven. The aim of the study is development of baby diapers finished with two different fragrant oils such as Citronella and Marjoram which has good smell. Fragrant finishing is given by means of microencapsulation process.
