Kelheim Fibres to make its strategy known at MMF Congress
19
Jul '12

Commercial Director Matthew North will deliver a deep insight into the strategy of the Bavarian viscose fibre manufacturer Kelheim Fibres at this year’s Man-Made Fibers (MMF) Congress in Dornbirn. In his speech with the title “A Specialist Specialises” he will reveals the secrets of success of Kelheim Fibres, who - as a medium-sized enterprise – has gained an excellent position in an increasingly competitive global market.

For those who want to know more about the newest products of the speciality fibre producer three more presentations will deliver more specific information.

Dr. Ingo Bernt from Kelheim Fibres’ R&D team will speak about the design of viscose fibres specially for wetlaid nonwovens. As current research shows, short fibres with a flat cross section prove particularly beneficial for the strength of a nonwoven web. The latest fibre invention from Kelheim, Leonardo, combines both properties perfectly and beyond that also scores with its extra smooth surface and transparency.

Dr. Philipp Wimmer, another member of Kelheim’s R&D team, will present viscose speciality fibres for enhanced fluid management. In his lecture he will speak both about speciality fibres with increased water absorbency and the completely new possibility to produce viscose fibres with reduced water absorbency or even water repellence.

Finally, Dr. Roland Scholz will present viscose fibres designed to improve dispersibility of wet wipes. The underlying research examined wet wipes for personal hygiene applications which frequently are flushed into toilets – and risk blocking the waste water system. In the course of the study important factors were discovered which facilitate the dispersibility of nonwovens based on 100% viscose fibres: In addition to water pressure in production and the properties of the nonwoven, the fibre geometry (titre, length and shape of cross-section) play a decisive role.

In addition to these lectures, Kelheim’s fibre experts are available for personal meetings at Kelheim Fibres’ information booth.
