PRODUCTION OF VISCOSE - a regenerated fibre:

  • the raw material for viscose is cellulose from pine or wood chips
  • the cellulose is purified, bleached, pressed into sheets and dissolved in sodium hydroxide
  • it's pressed again, shredded and aged
  • carbon disulphide is added which makes the cellulose a fluid honey-like substance
