Up to 95 percent light reflectance: Kelheim tests new IR-reflecting viscose specialty fiber

from Textile World

Kelheim Fibers, a leading manufacturer of viscose specialty fibers, has completed the next step in the development of IR-reflecting fibers. During the last months, the incorporation of mineral IR-reflecting particles has been tested in several spinning trials. Different levels of these particles were integrated into the fiber’s core, thereby preserving the fiber’s inherent properties, rather than being added as a topical finish using additives based on titanium oxide or other metal-based compounds. The effects of the new method are permanent and cannot be washed out. more
