How Much Does This Diaper Hold?
March 16, 2018
If you’ve ever sat down in a wet, cold, uncomfortable diaper, you know that what matters most in absorbent products is fluid retention and dryness. Many products use words like “extra”, “super plus”, or “maximum” and display the absorbency like this: on the packaging.
This may seem confusing and misleading because you think you are getting a product that is “super plus”, but you end up with a wet, leaky diaper. We test our products differently to ensure we deliver dryness and fluid retention that is displayed on the packaging.
The Tranquility Difference – We Hold Cups, Not Drops
At Tranquility, we test our products differently! We hold cups, not drops. We measure our products using Capacity Under Pressure, a proprietary test method that measures the product’s retention capacity (the amount of fluid absorbed by the product that cannot be forced out with pressure), providing a more accurate representation of the product’s absorbency under daily use. We display our capacity by showing you actual cups of fluid that can be absorbed and retained, while also presenting a normal void amount (1 – 1.5 cups). We try to make the complex easy, so you can wear our products without worry and get exactly what expect, a dry product! Watch the Tranquility Difference here!
