In-fibre sustainable infrared viscose
Among many applications, the new viscose fiber from Kelheim Fibres and Hologenix is ideal for performance wear, luxury loungewear, casual wear and bedding.
Kelheim Fibres, the leading manufacturer of viscose specialty fibers, and Hologenix, creators of Celliant, a responsive textile using infrared technology, partnered to create Celliant viscose. The viscose fiber blends in with cotton, regular viscose, MicroModal, lyocell and wool offers a range of varieties.
Celliant viscose features natural, ethically sourced minerals embedded into plant-based fibers to create infrared products that capture and convert body heat into infrared, improving cellular oxygenation. Kelheim’s flexible technology permits targeted interventions in the viscose fiber process and delivers this unique fiber that provides full functionality without the need for any additional processing steps, while impressing with a softer feel and cost and time savings compared to coated fabrics.
- Dominik Mayer, Kelheim Project Manager, and Courtney O’Keefe, Hologenix Chief Supply Officer, will share at Dornbirn’s GFC, 15-17 September 2021, the story of how this first in-fiber sustainable solution on the market was developed.
