Evonik Industries has opened an application technology center for superabsorbent polymers at its Krefeld, Germany, site. Built at a cost of about $1 million, the center will permit efficient testing of the highly absorbent polymers in both baby diaper and adult incontinence applications, the firm says. A highlight of the lab is a new mannequin test for incontinence products.
