Kelheim introduces new viscose speciality fibres

The newly developed functional fibres from Kelheim Fibres have a wide range of applications, including nonwovens and filtration.Kelheim Fibres adds that it has developed Olea, an intrinsically hydrophobic viscose fibre. In contrast to Olea, Bramante delivers significantly increased levels of absorbency and water retention capacity relative to standard viscose fibres. Bramante is characterised by its segmented hollow structure in the wet state – it stores fluid inside the fibre, which minimises rewetting – even under pressure. In addition to the new fibre specialities, Kelheim’s established brands will also be an important focus at Techtextil. These include the extremely versatile Danufil® fibre, which can be found in a wide range of technical applications.
