MADE FROM NATURE
DP ACETATE CELLULOSE FILAMENT YARN PRODUCTION PROCESS
From tree to yarn DP ACETATE production process is designed to ensure the lowest environmental impact. With an extremely low water footprint we uses only sustainably sourced wood and safe solvents which are recycled and reused.
The process starts with wood forest sourced exclusively from sustainably managed and certified forests and plantations from whole world.
Sustainably sourced wood is turned into wood pulp.
Wood pulp is combined with acetic acid to make cellulose acetate granules.
The granules are dissolved in acetone to make a cellulose acetate dope solution.
Solvents and waste of cellulose filament yarns used in the process are recycled back into the system for reuse with no release into the environment. Used water is cleaned and returned to the source with routine testing.
The dope is finally spun through tiny holes in a spinneret and air-dried to form cellulose acetate filament yarn. Dry spinning DP ACETATE cellulose filament yarn does not required any water.
THE DP ACETATE cellulose filament yarn is spinned onto large from 3 kg to 6 kg bobbins – ready for shipping to fabric mills.
The result is low-impact, sustainable DP ACETATE cellulose filament yarn which can be used in knits and woven fabrics and easily mixed with other fibers. DP ACETATE cellulose filament yarn is OEKO-TEX 100 Product Class certified.
