Kelheim Fibers is one of the world’s leading producers of viscose specialty fibers. The Germany-based company focuses on innovative high-quality fibers. These fibers are used in diverse applications as fashion, hygiene and medical products, specialty papers and in the nonwovens industry.
Kelheim offers a range of specialty viscose fibers allowing the specific properties of fabrics to be enhanced, generating added value in the textile chain. Viloft is for light and soft garments with outstanding next-to-skin-comfort. Viseta is 50 per cent finer than silk for a soft, flowing drape and a luxurious and natural feel. Bramante has extra high absorbency and retention capacity. Olea is the first viscose fiber with intrinsic water repellency. Danufil Tow includes spun dyed fibers and has continuous tow for stretch breaking and flock.
Viloft and Viseta fibers form the foundation of the company’s success in Asia, helping customers to obtain fabrics with outstanding comfort. The company has ideas for the use of viscose fibers in environmentally sound yet at the same time tailormade wound care, in semi-finished products with printed electrical circuits, eco-friendly felt pens, panels of pressed straw for construction applications and an idea for a regional marketing for regionally produced fiber products.
