    Interesting. I wonder just how much this new material swells once it absorbs liquid?

    Magnesium carbonate is insoluble in water by the way. I don't think it'd adhere well to urine as a result. This material would not work for diapers unfortunately =P. Rly interesting find though!

    It's a new material so I would expect manufacturing prices would be super high and it hasn't been handed over to any diaper companies. Even if it would somehow work in diapers it would still be years before we see it on the market then even more years for it to replace SAP.


    SAP already holds like 50x its own weight in water/urine. I don't really think we need anything more then that.

    I think Bambino Bellimso's might be able to hold a gallon. I know they never leaked on me after 3 heavy wetting's in over a 14 hour span. (didn't even feel wet after the first two.)
