Twaron pulp

Thanks to its unique physical and chemical properties, Twaron pulp delivers superior strength, stability and resistance to heat and corrosive chemicals. And during processing, its fibrillated nature limits separation and aids the dispersal of other ingredients. It is also an excellent replacement for asbestos and copper. Together, these characteristics make Twaron pulp the material of choice for a range of applications, where it delivers both extra reinforcement and extra efficiency.

Continuous improvement

For various Twaron pulp types, specifications are now narrower than ever. Thanks to our long-term experience in the production of pulp, which puts us in a position to strictly control our processes, specifications were narrowed with regard to fiber length, specific surface area, moisture and/or spin finish – some values even by up to 40%. This higher specificity, quality and consistency enables users to optimize the efficiency of their production processes.
