Abstract

Fluid Collection Systems Produced with Superabsorbent Containing Film. A superabsorbent containing film is useful for liquid waste management applications include gellation of sewage sludge, river or lake bottom sludge, nuclear or radioactive liquid waste, water used during asbestos removal and medical waste or any other liquids that need to be contained or prevented from spilling. An asymmetric multilayer structure would be fabricated into a bag. The superabsorbent containing skin side of the film should be turned towards the inside of the bag. Bags covering a wide variety of sizes and other desirable attributes may be readily designed using SAP containing films and laminates.
