No PFOS, PFOA, lead, dioxins, heavy metals, BPA, or phthalates are ever used in our fabrics. Read Blog Article
Version 2 of the Zorb 4D Stay Dry Dimple CORE PUL; lighter-weight fabric makes your final product slimmer and trim.
Our 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.
CPSIA certified, meeting stringent standards by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on lead and phthalates and flammability.
Combining super absorbency, waterproofing and leak-protection into one.
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).
100% eco-friendly, manufactured with no harmful chemicals or finishes in controlled conditions in American textile mills.
All Zorb fabrics are designed with the ability to exponentially increase their absorbency; pair with Zorb 3D fabric on the dimple side & use multiple layers to supercharge your products' absorbency.
Two Fabrics in One
This fabric combines super absorbency, waterproof properties, and leak protection. It truly does it all. One side features our Zorb 3D Stay Dry Dimple LITE fabric, consisting of 3 layers.
The other side is made of our ProCool Performance Lightweight fabric, which is thin and light. Between these layers is the laminated, waterproof polyurethane film. This fabric truly provides you with everything you could need!
No More Leaks!
We engineered the 3D dimple pattern to retain, hold, and distribute moisture without leaking under compression. Our ProCool polyester fabric is made of premium hydrophobic fibers that provide extra protection against leaks. It’s so absorbent that it takes not even 2 seconds to absorb ten times its weight. It soaks up 20 times faster than materials such as bamboo, cotton, or hemp knits.
Good for the Environment
We use a unique process to melt-bond our thermoplastic polyurethane film to the fabric. The specially treated TPU film is applied to the fabric without emitting toxic wastes or VOCs into the environment. Our employees don’t breathe it in, and it won’t rub off on your skin!
We don’t use super absorbent polymers (SAP) in our fabrics. The chemicals that would typically make the material retain moisture are nonexistent. Because of this, our fabric’s super absorbency lasts for the product's lifetime.
Tons of Uses
This fabric can be used for so many different purposes! Our customers recommend it most for some specific products.
Use it for bed liners, bibs, burp cloths, cage liners, changing pads, cloth diapers, dish mats, dog diapers, gardening shoe covers, handkerchiefs, mattress pads, menstrual pads, nursing pads, period panties, pet beds, and pet potty pads.
Our super absorbent fabrics will make your product last longer, whatever that may be.
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.
