Cotonized flax fibres and rescutched flax tow
Cottonized flax fibres and flax by-products are sold to be used in the making of banknotes. Did you know that the dollar note consists of 25% flax fibres? The flax fibres make the bill note stronger. Cigarette paper is made of flax fibres, as well, because the fibre enhances porosity, strength and taste. The cellulose in this material is also used to make sponges.
Assets of our flax fibres
Due to the large capacity in our carding and combing department, we have a large supply of flax by-products that are ideal for the banknote paper industry.
