Viscose fibre manufacturer Kelheim Fibres will present solutions for high-performance insulation materials, disinfectant wipes and supply chain at this year’s Techtextil to be held at Frankfurt, Germany from May 14-17. With dry short cut viscose fibres, Kelheim saves energy and the fibre’s specific properties allow for permanent dimensional stability. Fibres with an extremely fine titre are processed along with pyrogenic silica to make vacuum insulation panels (VIPs). They offer the same insulation effect as rock wool with only one tenth the thickness. Such panels are used in refrigerators and freezers, as well as in building insulation. Transport logistics that demand an uninterrupted cold chain is another promising future market for these speciality fibres, said Kelheim in a report.
