Kelheim showing new viscose fibre applications at ITMA

German speciality viscose fibres producer Kelheim Fibres will show new applications for its fibres which include flushable wipes and melange yarns at ITMA 2015 in hall-08, booth A-141b.

“Viscose short cut fibres from Kelheim Fibres have proven to be the perfect raw material for the manufacture of wet wipes which meet the new flushability guidelines issued by INDA and EDANA,” a press release said.

“They can be conveniently flushed down the toilet, without clogging the toilet or downstream waste water treatment plants,” it added.

“During the last few years, wipes producers have been mastering a balancing act between the stability of a wet wipe in use and its disintegration during the flushing process in the toilet,” Kelheim informed.

The perfect blend of the raw materials pulp and short cut fibres is essential for the success of this process, in which short cut fibres are responsible for the stability of the wipe.

“In practice, Viloft nonwoven short cut fibres with their flat cross section have proven particularly successful,” the German company stated.

It further added that they deliver the best performance regarding tailor-made flushability and at the same time, score with their quick and easy processability during the manufacturing process.

Kelheim Fibres is the only European manufacturer of viscose short cut fibres and its viscose specialities consist of 100 per cent cellulose and so can be perfectly integrated in all wetlaid processes.

Another innovation, Danufil Proshade is an innovative new viscose melange yarn resulting from cooperation between Kelheim Fibres, Linz Textil and DyStar Colours Distribution GmbH.

According to Kelheim, Danufil Proshade is a blend of standard viscose fibres and Kelheim's speciality fibre Danufil Deep Dye and promises benefits for the environment.

“It is dyed subsequently according to the customer's specific needs and so offers advantages for logistics and warehousing as well as for the dyeing process which can be carried out without the use of salt,” it observed. (AR)
