The material is compressible and can be compressed down from 8 mm to ~0,7 mm. This can only be performed in the dry state.In the wet condition the Sugi® cellulose sponge material displays elastic properties regarding compression. The compressed material has a faster wicking rate (speed of absorption) which could become relevant for specific devices. The compression does not harm the overall absorptive capacity.
We offer assistance in determining your preferred compression ratio.
