Benefits from tailored functionalities

Cellulose fibrils are Borregaard’s innovative new product line within the field of microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) and nanocellulose, which not only offers rheology modification, but also a long list of other advantages in a material that demonstrates high efficacy and robustness in harsh environments.

Through Borregaard’s proprietary fibrillation process, cellulose fibres are converted into a 3D network of microfibrils, with an ultra-high surface area and water retention capability, that will retain their crystallinity features even after the production process.

In addition to superior rheology performance, our products also improves product stability (anti-settling) and versatility, alongside controlling dry-out time, improving barriers and enhancing uptake of active ingredients. Its pseudoplastic (non-newtonian) performance makes our fibrillated cellulose ideally suited to products where strict demands are made to spray quality and they are particularly suited when low viscosity at high shear and/or rapid recovery of viscosity is required.

Cellulose fibrils' multifunctional advantages

  • Extremely shear thinning (Pseudoplastic, non-newtonian)
  • High viscosity at low shear
  • Thixotropic characteristics
  • Very high water retention capacity
  • Barrier properties
  • Enhancing uptake of active ingredients
  • Ensuring stability
