Textile Fibers, Yarns, and FabricsFiber
CelluComp has invented a proprietary process that is unique in allowing the properties of cellulose nanofibers (CNF) to be fully utilised. Curran® fibres are strong, stiff and light; properties which allow the production of composites with performance characteristics comparable to those based on conventional carbon fibre technology. Bio-composites based on Curran® can be based on a variety of conventional resins such as epoxy, polyurethane and polyester. The platelet structure of Curran® fibres also makes them effective rheology modifiers in end uses such as paints & coatings, concrete, drilling fluids, cosmetics, personal care and home care products. The same platelet structure provides impressive reinforcing effects in paints & coatings, concrete and some personal care products. Curran® is compatible in a variety of common water based polymer systems such as epoxies, acrylics and polyurethanes.
Curran® CV5000 Granules
Curran® granules are produced from the slurry material by removal of water. Granules are free-flowing and dust free, with a solids level of approx. 20%. Granules are the most popular form for use in paints & coatings and are convenient for transport, storage and use. Dispersion into aqueous systems is readily achieved using conventional industry mixing equipment.
