Kelheim’s specialty fibers for this area include Galaxy, a viscose fiber for tampon production, as well as short cut fibers that have been specifically designed for processing in modern wetlaid plants. These fibers enable the manufacturing of completely plastic-free and even flushable wipes from 100% cellulose.
In textiles, too, consumers value natural materials. Kelheim’s range of specialty fibers for textile applications comprises spun-dyed fibers, as well as the renowned brand names Viloft and Viseta: In yarns, the flat fiber Viloft creates small air pockets, that make the textile highly breathable and comfortable – an ideal fiber for warm, close-to-the-skin feel-good clothes.
Viseta is 50% finer than silk and gives clothes a flowing drape and a soft and naturally luxurious touch.
