Cellofiber was developed by the company as a suitable construction material that takes advantage of such UKP properties as light weight and excellent processability.
Cellofiber is obtained by fibrillating individual fibers of UKP in a rigorous beating process.* It is a type of wood fiber harmless to people and yet performs similarly to asbestos, which was widely used in the past.
Untreated pulp does not hold cement. Cellofiber, however, can hold cement evenly among its fine fibers. It also possesses excellent anti-alkaline properties and autoclave heat resistance.
For this reason, Cellofiber is widely used in construction as reinforcement for ceramic building materials, such as slate roof tiles, which are made by mixing fibers into cement, and other tiles and bricks.
A process in which a mixture of water and pulp, which is a mass of fibers, is beaten to produce paper stock.
