Kelheim Fibres will showcase its wide range of specialty viscose fibres - from versatile Danufil to Olea, the first viscose fibre with inherent hydrophobic properties, to Bramante with significantly increased levels of absorbency - at Techtextil, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, during May 9-12, 2017 in Frankfurt. 
 
Kelheim Fibres is the leading producer of Bavarian viscose speciality fibres and the most important supplier of viscose fibres for the tampon industry. Their wide spectrum of the most varied functional fibre products is the perfect raw material for a whole range of technical applications, from nonwovens applications to functional apparel, and from sportswear to filtration.
 
"Our core strength is the exact matching of our fibres to our customer's specific needs, to their final product or to their production process. This way we generate added value for the customer and that is the best foundation for a long-lasting and successful partnership," commercial director Matthew North says.
 
At Techtextil, the Bavarians will present Olea, the world's first viscose fibre with inherent hydrophobic properties, as well as the fibre speciality Bramante, which in contrast to Olea delivers significantly increased levels of absorbency relative to standard viscose fibres. Bramante can store liquids in the segmented hollow structure inside the fibre and keep it there even under pressure. Thus, Bramante is the ideal raw material for re-usable incontinence products and other hygienic applications, the company says in a release.
 
Danufil BF, a flame retardant viscose speciality, serves a completely different purpose and is used as a protective barrier nonwoven in mattresses or furniture. It can help to prevent a fire from spreading.
 
By precisely controlling fibre dimensions and cross sections or by incorporating additional functionalities in the fibre matrix, Kelheim's fibre experts not only create a fibre with additional new functionalities but at the same time, they can preserve the typical properties of a viscose fibre such as softness, skin-friendliness and wearer comfort, the release says.
 
Kelheim products are produced completely from cellulose that is sustainably farmed and certified by both the FSC and PEFC organisations. After use, the consumer does not need to worry about the safety of disposal of the products since the fibres are biodegradeable and certified as compostable. (SV)
