Switzerland: Kelheim Fibres at the INDEX17 nonwovens exhibition to take place this April in Geneva will be presenting its Viloft flat short cut fibre for rapidly disintegrating wet wipes. Kelheim Fibres’ in-house R&D has also developed a new fibre named Electra, which can be used in a wide range of applications for the dissipation of static charges. Currently, Kelheim is testing the possible use of this fibre in connection with sensitive electronic components.
Approximately 90,000 tons of viscose fibres are produced and tested every year at Kelheim in South Germany. Its viscose fibre products are used in widely diverse applications ranging from fashion, hygiene and medical products, to the nonwovens industry.
Kelheim Fibres is focused on developing innovative products, flexible technologies and strong customer orientation, as well as active environmental protection.
