We would like to share some additional details about the new Crinklz products with you. Due to the more modern packing technology we will now use, the new Crinklz products appear thinner than the old ones when taken out of the package. Whereas in reality the new Crinklz products are even heavier than the old ones (210 to 200 g for size M and 230 to 217 g for size L). By gently shaking the product and letting it sit for a bit, a similar degree of fluffiness as the old diapers can be achieved.
The performance of the absorbent core was markedly improved by using high quality European components. It was cost prohibitive to use these components when our products were made in China. For example, the absorption speed for Crinklz size L will now be 7,3 ml/s as opposed to 4,7 ml/s for the old made in China products (tested in accordance with the German MDS HI test standard by an independent institute). The acquisition and distribution layer (ADL) will also be significantly larger, which contributes to the improvements. As previously stated the new products will no longer feature a tapezone. However, the new plastic film is a slightly elastic high-tech material. Based on the feedback we received from our prototype testers, larger double tapes with extra high tack will be used. The plastic film and tapes are both Made in Germany. Since there will no longer be a tapezone, we did some adjustments to the design to give you better tape alignment cues.
The leak barriers will be extra high (about 5,5 cm) to compensate for the narrower cut in the crotch. These high barriers are also perfectly suited for the optional use of diaper inserts to boost absorbency even more. You can see all the product features and changes in the attached graphics.
The first production run will take place in calendar week 50. Shortly thereafter the new products will ship to our worldwide customers. Availability then depends on when the deliveries arrive. We will update the list of distributors soon.
We are impatiently waiting for the arrival of the new products together with you!
