Gel de NFC

NFC Gel

An aqueous suspension of nanofibrillated cellulose resulting from chemical and mechanical treatment of wood pulp.

Properties :

> Mechanical properties in Kevlar range
> Excellent barrier properties
> Hydrophilic
> Film forming ability
> Biodegradable

 

Applications?

> Pulp & Paper industry : bulk or surface, mechanical resistance improvement, drastic permeability reduction, replacement of common polluting or expensive additives
> Non-woven : better mechanical reinforcement
> Formulation: binder, stabilizer for emulsion


NFC sous forme sèche

Dry NFC

The NFC Gel is treated in order to reach a high dry content. This results in two products:
> Fine powder
> Aerogel

 

Application?

The dry NFC allows the replacement of higher density reinforcement fillers for weight reduction and mechanical resistance improvement.

Functionalized NFC

Surface treatment provides NFC with hydrophobic properties. The vast possibilities in NFC chemical modification allow many customizations in order to provide the material with specific properties. Anti-bacterial activity is an example.

Properties :

> Excellent barrier properties
> Hydrophobic
> Film forming capacity retained
> Biodegradable

 

Applications?

> Packaging : impermeable film production with suitable barrier properties
> Pulp & Paper: bulk or surface for mechanical resistance improvement, replacement of common additives, drastic decrease in permeability, hydrophobic paper
