First grade fluff pulp with a low percentage of super-absorbent polymers are recovered from industrial rejects of personal hygiene products such as adult incontinence briefs, baby diapers, and sanitary napkins, then clean to remove almost all the sodium polyacrylate present in the fibers.

The first grade fluff pulp has the same properties as the virgin fibers, therefore can be used again in the production of personal hygiene products. This grade with a low percentage of super-absorbent will produce a better quality product than the other grades due to the low and constant sodium polyacrylate dosage. These fibers can also be used in the production of non-woven “airlaid” type, production of tissue paper, production of new materials like bio-composite and as an insulating material.
