materiais absorventes a base de celulose e polímeros OU absorventes de alto desempenho
Explanation:
The air-formed combination of cellulose fibers and meltblown polymer is commonly known as coform.

New product: K-C coform products. (Kimberly-Clark Nonwoven Medical Fabrics adds to medical absorbent product line);

Pelo que se vê acima, a tradução mais exata (e mais longa) seria "materiais absorventes compostos de celulose e polímeros fundidos injetados a ar quente", que resumida ficaria "materiais absorventes a base de celulose e polímeros", ainda muito longo.

Talvez traduzir pelo uso do produto, 'absorventes de alto desempenho' ou materiais absorventes de última geração' ficasse melhor, aí vai de vc querer literalidade ou compreensibilidade...
