“Manufacturers of the most different end products have realized that they can enhance their product or optimise their production process by using our speciality fibres”, the R&D head of a Germany speciality fibre producer reveals.

In an exclusive chat with fibre2fashion, Walter Roggenstein, Head of R&D at Kelheim Fibres GmbH adds, “At the moment, we see a growing interest in our speciality fibres in many and various end uses. Accordingly, we are working on a multitude of innovative speciality fibres and applications at the same time.

Giving an example he says, “In the hygiene sector, our viscose speciality fibres have been a much sought-after raw material for years because of their natural absorbency and softness and their eco-friendliness as they are completely made from wood pulp and fully biodegradable.

“We have already developed a range of fibres with very different grades of absorbency from extra absorbent to hydrophobic, so we can create whole products - like for example sanitary towels, which are 100% biodegradable and compostable yet at the same time extremely functional and effective.” (AR)
