Is this de-laminating?

Postby Robins_Mummy » Sat Dec 17, 2011 7:28 pm

My Rumparooz, I think, has de-laminated. When I was stuffing the pocket, I noticed inside there's now a plastic layer that's come away from the nappy shell. Is this de-laminating? And if so, why does it happen?

Yep sounds like it has. A pocket of mine did that and unfortuantly not much can be done I don't think :?

A few of mine have but as the PUL layer is still in one piece and just separated I haven't had any problems

My little lamb wraps did the same but as kimmy said, mine still work too. As long as the pul is intact it still works.

I'm no expert but I would guess hot washes and tumble dryers.

hi everyone
delaminating occurs when the plastic comes way from the outer material, when there was a issue with the some pocket nappies it happened because the laminated machine wasnt allowed to heat up enough between swapping fabrics so the first section of laminate wasnt hot enough to bind to the material but as it had time to heat up the rest of the fabric run was ok,
hope this helps
emma
merry christmas everyone
