• Crack prevention

    Fibrillated fibers of micron order physically capture cement particles and fillers to suppress sedimentation during water dispersion, resulting in beautiful and durable surfaces.

    • Cement Boards
  • Deterioration and collapse resistant

    Interaction of urethane hydrogen bonds and Fybrel® increases chemical and mechanical strength while prolonging initial elasticity.

    • Urethane foam

Thixotropic agent (viscosity modifier)

  • Sag prevention

    Fibrillated fibers disperse particles in paints and coating agents to prevent sagging by physical entanglement.

    • Paints and pigments
  • Viscosity control

    By adding fibrillated fibers during the manufacture of adhesives, wettability and adhesive strength can be maintained while controlling viscosity.

    • Adhesives
    • Coatings

Dispersing agent

  • Particle dispersion

    By combining Fybrel® with pulp and conductive particles, fibrillated fibers complement conductive particles for uniformed dispersal.

    • Conductive paper


  • Pore size control

    By combining Fybrel® with pulp or nonwoven fibers, pore diameter of porous material can be controlled.

    • Filters
    • Separators
    • Airlaid nonwovens
    • Oil blotters

Functionalizing agent


  • Heat seal

    By adding Fybrel® during papermaking processes, heat sealing of paper becomes possible allowing thermal bonding of paper products or paper and film products.

    • Paper/seal
    • Paper/plastic film
    • Paper/film seal

Processing aid

  • Thermoforming

    By mixing Fybrel® with pulp or cotton, thermoforming while retaining characteristics of paper or cotton is possible.

    • Molded paper
    • Embossed paper
    • Cotton puffs
