German producer of speciality viscose fibres, Kelheim Fibres said it has been selected as finalist in two categories of ITMA Future Materials Awards.

Kelheim applied for the ‘Best Innovation Medical Textiles’ award, with its new speciality fibre – Bramante and has made it the finals of this category.

According to Kelheim, Bramante offers a solution for an increasing challenge to the ageing society, since 20% of all people over 60 suffer from urinary incontinence.

It says, “The hollow viscose fibre Bramante far exceeds the naturally high absorbency of viscose fibres and is capable of absorbing and retaining an amount of liquid corresponding to around 250% of its own weight.

“It retains absorbed liquids even when under pressure, enabling the production of incontinence pads that are washable and therefore environmentally sound, yet at the same time absolutely reliable, and don’t restrict the activities of the user”, the fibre producer added.

Kelheim Fibres has also reached the finals of the ‘Most innovative large company’ category award.

Kelheim informs that it is their uncompromising innovation strategy, which has enabled it to compete with Asian fibre manufacturers, despite operating from a high cost country like Germany.

Kelheim Fibres continuously develops new speciality viscose fibre products which are perfectly suited for new markets and end products, with functionalities that cannot be substituted by standard fibres.

“As a result, more than ten new fibres have been developed in the last five years alone and are being commercialised for different applications,” it explains. (AR)
