Attends diapers are changing for the worst this year, and several other diaper brands are expected to do the same. Attends have developed a new lining using some chemical crystal that absorbs liquid really well. The material appears like fine sand until wet when each particle expands to about 5-8mm. This material will be used for everything from diapers to oil spills. It is expected to reduce the thickness of things like diapers and womens pads to about one third of what they currently are.
