Plastic Back Booster Pads - These Booster pads, are not meant to be worn inside of a diaper but rather can be worn in regular underwear for protection against light incontinence, these pads have a lower capacity at around 458ml and are often paired with an adhesive back.
These boosters have an extra layer of taping to help stick to the inner padding of a pair of briefs, or even to a regular pair of underwear. These are perfect for daytime use as it helps keep the booster in place while being active. These boosters are aimed at daytime use and have a lower level of absorbency then the regular booster pads with an absorbency of under 500ml.
