Product Information
Cellulose, which accounts for about half the content of wood, and hemicellulose components have long been used as the raw materials of paper and pulp. Our dissolving pulp has been widely used particularly as the raw material of rayon and cellophane, because it is produced by sulfite pulping, further enhancing cellulose purity.
Our pulp is also of high whiteness, since hemicellulose and lignin content is low, and not only is it used as an important raw material of CMC (Carboxymethyl cellulose) and other cellulose derivatives, as well as the base material of heat hardened resins (mainly urea and melamine resin molding material), because it is ideal for using as a chemically transformed raw material, but it is also widely used as papermaking pulp (specialty paper).
Chemical structure of cellulose
Cellulose is a high polymer compound made up of the three elements carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. It is an environmentally friendly substance, because it is a carbohydrate like starch and sugar.
[molecular formula (C6H10O5)n]
The structure of cellulose is a long chain of units of glucose.
Main uses of pulp
Viscose rayon Types of viscose rayon include not only regular rayon and high tenacity rayon but also polynosic rayon (for clothing), and each comes in the form of rayon staples or rayon filaments. Pulp of higher cellulose purity is used for high quality filaments and polynosic rayon than for staples.
Cellophane While rayon is made by extruding viscose through spinnerets to form thin strands, cellophane is made by extruding viscose through a long narrow slit to solidify and reconvert the viscose into a film.
Molding materials Pulp is used as a filler for plastic urea and melamine resin products, and the finished products are widely used in electrical machinery parts, tableware, toys, and other products.
Cellulose derivatives As a raw material of cellulose derivatives, pulp is used in CMC (Carboxylmethyl cellulose), MC (Methyl cellulose), HPC (Hydroxy propyl cellulose), HEC (Hydroxy ethyl cellulose), etc. Cellulose powder is pulp that has undergone acid hydrolysis, been mechanically disintegrated and made into fine powder.
Specialty paper Since our pulp is produced by sulfite pulping and is highly refined, it is a product of high whiteness with few impurities. Making using of these features, our pulp is used widely in specialty paper-related products such as filter paper and vulcanized fiber.
