Bleached cottonized flax fibre
Behaving very similarly to cotton, bleached cottonized flax fibre retains the unique properties of flax – bactericidal action, ecological properties, etc. Its production technology relies on a smart combination of mechanical and chemical treatment of short flax fibre and is flexible in terms of fibre parameters (length, linear density, shive removal degree, etc.). With low quantity of operations, the mechanical treatment is fibre-sparing, leaving the structure intact and causing no excessive splitting of bust bundles in the ready product. The chemical treatment imparts the product with a set of auxiliary qualities, rendering it elastic, soft, crimped, hygroscopic, antibacterial, fire- and bio-protected, etc.
