Surfactants for viscose - Berol® Visco and Berol® Spin 

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:

Reactivity additive

  • Reduces wear and tear of filters and spinnerets
  • Improves fiber quality
  • Improves accessibility of NaOH and CS2 creating a more uniform reaction with less formation of gel particles

Process additive

  • Keeps the system clean, decreasing spinneret cleaning operations
  • Increases the uniform cross section of fibers with improved spinnability
  • Lessens fiber breakages


  • Improves the tenacity of the fiber
  • Decreases deposits
  • Retards the regeneration of cellulose

Spin bath additive

  • Extended spinneret life
  • Reduces cleaning operations
  • Improves fiber quality

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.
