With their microfibrillar structure, good thermal stability and chemical resistance, Lenzing Lyocell Shortcut fibers are well suited to use in various types of filter media. Fibrillated Lenzing Lyocell Shortcut fibers significantly enhance performance attributes of sheet materials including pore structure, permeability, filtration performance, mechanical properties, chemical resistance and formation.
According to Lenzing, cellulosic composition contributes to compatibility with natural cellulosic and synthetic fiber types and binders. Also, fibrillated Lenzing Lyocell Shortcut fibers provide a unique source of sub-micron diameter fibrils during wet abrasion within a refining process. Incorporation of Lenzing Lyocell Fibers and fibrillated Lenzing Lyocell fibers within the furnish increases wet web strength and sheet tear resistance.
The fibers are certified for food contact compliance and are derived from sustainable wood sources using a low environmental impact manufacturing process.
