Product description

Hippocampus OU sale high purity cellulose has proven its excellence over many years in highly demanding applications such as pharmaceutical tablets, usage castings, and filaments.

Our high purity cellulose is obtained from softwood. Our advanced process delivers cellulose easily reprocessed and with viscosity to meet your requirements.
Our cellulose is bleached in a unique, totally chlorine-free, closed-loop bleach plant, producing cellulose of high brightness.
Our cellulose has a consistent quality and high reactivity, enabling users to reduce chemical consumption and processing time.

We offer individual customer service and quality throughout the entire business. 
Our customer adapted products match highly set demands on product quality as well as secure deliveries and sustainability.

The main field of application is viscose for fashion and textiles. But cellulose can also be found in many other products, such as medical tablets, food, sausage casing, tires, and paint.
What these have in common are high standards regarding cleanliness and functionality.

Cellulose for viscose staple fiber

Cellulose for viscose staple fiber is the foundation of our sales, a quality with solid and reliable characteristics. The coniferous trees’ long fibers give the product its special properties that fit very well in the manufacture of viscose staple fiber, a natural material with nice comfort features. Cellulose is also used in cellophane, sponges, and as an important component in the paint. The cellulose’s consistent quality contributes to an efficient production at our customers, irrespective of the process used for further refining.

 

Cellulose for viscose filament

Sometimes extraordinary cellulose is needed. Hippocampus OU offers highly refined cellulose with very high and consistent quality. It is designed for applications that require exceptionally pure cellulose, commonly in viscose. As a customer, you can find it in beautiful, silk-like fashion garments. Other fields of application are technical cord and acetate. The cellulose is customized to satisfy all our customers’ requirements. The unique properties, combined with great technical expertise and highly developed customer collaboration, makes it the obvious choice for customers who want the best.

 

Cellulose for casings

The latest addition to the cellulose product family is the newly developed Domsjö Cellulose Ultra.
It has been developed in Domsjö through genuine laboratory and factory trials.
Ultra is suitable for use in the manufacture of casings (including sausage skin) where the purity requirements are very high. 
This high-quality product is expected to reach more use in the future.

 

More applications

Some application sectors have exceptionally high requirements on cleanliness, e.g. medicine, food and hygiene. Our cellulose is a self-evident choice here as well.
It meets the FDA requirements and in order to provide customer security, we gladly show our process with chlorine-free and closed-loop bleaching, as well as our high-quality supply chain.
When the cellulose leaves the production line it is safe to consume. 
It is used for production of micro crystalline cellulose, an extremely pure cellulose powder contained in medicine tablets and in food.
Another important field of application is sausage casing production, where high requirements on cleanliness also are essential.
Since cellulose is good for digestion it is often used as a moisture and texture agent in diet drinks and juices.
