English term or phrase: wicking and absorbency
Come tradurreste "wicking and absorbency"?

"For example, the sleeve 106 should be able to accommodate the spray velocity of the flowable medium discharged from the actuator nozzle 166 and have a thickness sufficient to prevent the majority of the spray from exiting directly through the sleeve 106. The thickness of the sleeve 106 is also important to the wicking and absorbency properties thereof, which impacts the formation of one or more of the visual indicators (e.g., a plume and/or a wetted area)."
