The Helix portfolio of fibers are modified southern pine fibers that resist compression, even when wet. The process twists and curls standard fiber, and then locks the coiled configurations in place. These specialty fibers can add value to a variety of end use applications:
Absorbent Hygiene Products
Helix fibers create performance advantages with excellent fluid management due to fast liquid acquisition and the impressive ability to wick against gravity.
