To hold or contain a specific volume of fluid and permit its release in a controlled manner
Items that people use each and every day rely on the accurate release of liquids. Many personal care, fragrance delivery, and ink control products would fail to work without functional solutions for managing the storage and output of liquids. And the complexity of these solutions can be easy to ignore. Seemingly basic designs can require a sophisticated interplay between different types of porous material components, each performing different functions, in order to produce a dependable system for controlled release.
