Surfactants are necessary auxiliaries in the viscose process. Use our solutions to dramatically enhance the quality of your viscose process and products. Utilizing our surfactants will positively affect the end properties of viscose fiber and film.
Our main additives and their primary functions:
Spin bath additive
Expancel® Microspheres for technical textiles and nonwovens
Expancel® Microspheres have a spherical shape and are fantastically low in density. This means you get a filler for technical textiles and nonwoven composites that are both lightweight and has great expansion capacity. Letting you add volume but not weight.
Even with relatively small dosages of Expancel® microspheres added, the need for a binder or other heavier fillers is reduced. This allows you to save on costs of raw materials and at the same time – enhance the properties of the substrates.
With its low density, the microspheres equip your final technical textile and nonwoven composite product with superior insulation. They will also increase bulk and thickness as well as dimensional stability.
Expancel® microspheres can be used in a wide variety of binder systems that are applied on the substrate, either by impregnation, coating, spraying, or lamination.

Improves the performance of dye baths and removes and deactivates metal ions that would otherwise catalyze the decomposition of the peroxide bleaching agent.
Levasil® colloidal silica is used in treatment formulations by the textile industry to help stabilize weave structure and improve seam slippage.
Can be used for bleaching/decolorization of cotton and recycled textiles.
Sodium hydrosulfide is used as a highly reactive form of sulfur and acts as an intermediate in the production of other chemicals, especially for thiochemicals used in textile processing.
Eka® HP T (Technical Grade) hydrogen peroxide solutions are clear, colorless and water-like in appearance. They are available in a number of different concentrations. Please contact your Nouryon Representative to determine which product meets your requirements.Read more
Wet cake of unexpanded thermoplastic microspheres used as a blowing agent in printing ink, nonwoven and toy clay. It expands at a temperature range of 90-141°C and the particle size is around 40 µm in its expanded form.Read more
Finnfix® CMC brand is used in a range of industrial applications, such as paper surface treatment, mining, fabric care, textile and ceramics. Finnfix® products hydrate and dissolve in hot and cold water. By selecting the right Finnfix® grade, manufacturers can achieve the desired rheology. Finnfix® CMC is known for its excellent water retention, film forming capability and surface activity. These bio-based and biodegradable products are food contact approved and do not contain SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern).Read more
