Combining super absorbency, waterproofing and leak-protection into one.
We start with our thirsty Zorb 3D Stay Dry Dimple LITE (3-layer fabric) on one side, and laminate a hidden waterproof layer of 1-mil polyurethane film between it and our thin, light ProCool Performance Interlock fabric.
CORE PUL's contains a hidden waterproof layer, sandwiched between two outer fabrics; which provides additional protection for the waterproof film and increases the life of your product.
Our Zorb three-dimensional engineered dimple pattern has great retention, superior hold, fast distribution of moisture and less leaking under compression. It absorbs 10 times its weight in under 2 seconds and soaks up 20 times faster than other materials (bamboo, cotton, hemp knits).
Super-wicking ProCool interlock polyester fabric is uniquely engineered from premium hydrophobic fibers for extra protection from leakage.
Perfect for mattress covers, bed protectors, diaper changing stations and pet bedding.
CPSIA certified, meeting stringent standards by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on lead and phthalates and flammability.
100% eco-friendly, manufactured with no harmful chemicals or finishes in controlled conditions in American textile mills.
Unique process permanently melt-bonds our specially-treated TPU film to the fabric without toxic solvents. The process emits no toxic waste or VOCs that are harmful to the environment.
All Zorb fabrics are super absorbent by virtue of their knitting construction; they are not made with SAP (super absorbent polymers), so their super absorbency lasts for the lifetime of the fabric.
All Zorb fabrics are designed with the ability to exponentially increase their absorbency; pair with Zorb 3D on the dimple side & use multiple layers to supercharge your products' absorbency.
V1 vs V2
The difference between the V1 & V2 versions is the fabric combination used to create the Zorb 4D Stay Dry Dimple CORE PUL fabric.
The V1 Zorb 4D fabric is made with the Zorb 3D Stay Dry Dimple LITE for fast absorption & stay dry feel, and a polyester backing with a hidden waterproof layer for leakproof protection.
The V2 Zorb 4D fabric is made with the Zorb 3D Stay Dry Dimple LITE for fast absorption & stay dry feel, and a lighter weight polyester backing along with a hidden waterproof layer for leakproof protection. We process the V2 fabric through an additional compression round to make the fabric slimmer.

Important Note about UPF Ratings:
Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) indicates how much UV radiation (both UVB and UVA) a fabric allows to reach your skin. For example, a UPF 50 fabric blocks 98 % of the sun’s rays and allows 2% (1/50th) to penetrate, thus reducing your exposure risk significantly. A UPF 30 fabric blocks 97% of UV rays and allows roughly 3% of UV transmission. UPF 15 indicates that the fabric blocks roughly 93% of UV rays and allows about 7% of available UV radiation to pass through.
UPF 10 to 30 = Fair Protection
UPF 30 to 50 = Good Protection
UPS 50+ = Excellent Protection

Important Note about Absorbency in 3D & 4D Zorb fabrics:
These fabrics are designed to be absorbent and made without the use of any chemicals during manufacturing. Our Ready-AbZorb process helps eliminate the need for pre-washing for absorption and also reduces the shrinkage. However the fabrics are made in large batch sizes on industrial machines and sometimes the fabric may not absorb as desired from when you receive it, or sometimes after cutting and sewing. In such cases, we recommend running the fabric through a hot wash and medium dry cycle; this will help remove any handling residues and activate the super absorbent fibers that might have been affected by handling.
