CelluComp has invented a proprietary process that is unique in allowing the properties of cellulose nanofibres (CNF) to be fully utilised. Curran® fibres are strong, stiff and light; properties which allow the reinforcement and strengthening of fibre-based materials used in packaging and other materials such as composites, whereby performance characteristics are comparable to those based on conventional carbon fibre technology. Bio-composites based on Curran® can be based on a variety of conventional resins such as epoxy, polyurethane and polyester. The platelet structure of Curran® fibres also makes them effective rheology modifiers in end uses such as paints & coatings, concrete, drilling fluids, cosmetics, personal care and home care products. Curran® is pH stable from ranges of 2-12, making it effective in many applications. The same platelet structure provides impressive improved barrier properties when added to fibre substrates and coatings.
