SETS THE INDUSTRY STANDARD
Lenzing Viscose®, whose raw material is mainly the wood of beech-tree, is also a cellulose-based fiber like cotton.
Lenzing Viscose® absorbs more humidity than cotton does and it includes 11-14 percent of humidity under standard conditions. It also absorbs approximately 80-120 percent water, because of the fact that it has a high distension capacity.
The dry tensile strength of Lenzing Viscose® is less than cotton, while wet tensile strength is much lower.
Thanks to the high humidity absorbing capacity, Lenzing Viscose® is appropriate for dying and printing. This characteristic also leads to brighter colours.
Lenzing Viscose® is a favourite fiber in the production of inlet materials, blouses, shirts, t-shirts, garments, decoration materials and women’s underwear.
Lenzing Viscose® fiber is also used as blends with cotton, linen, wool and other types of fiber.
