Viscose Fabric

Materials for produce viscose include wood pulp (oak, pine and eucalyptus), and all cellulose-based powders. Viscose is a semi-synthetic type due to its chemical treatment to produce finished products such as sodium hydroxide and carbon disulfide. The summary viscose fabric manufacturing process consists of 5 steps:

1. Wood pulp is squeezed or pureed, forming raw materials and then combined with sodium hydroxide solution to create a solution of wood pulp, usually the result is brown powder.

2. Brown wood pulp will be washed and bleached.

3. The bleached powder solution will blend with a carbon disulfide solution and again combine with sodium hydroxide to create a solution called viscose.

4. The solution is spinning through a spinning sprayer called spinneret to create regenerative cellulose.

5. This regenerative cellulose is pulled into viscose fibers. Viscose fibers can be produced into woven or knitted in combination with spandex to create viscose spandex, also known as flexible fabrics.
