SPONTEX is the right partner for high-quality and individually-produced viscose sponges - and has been so for more than 30 years. Our viscose materials are used in surface technology and for manual and industrial component and surface cleaning thanks to their specific properties. The soft, but still resistant material is suitable for application on almost all surfaces such as plastics, ceramics, glass or metals.
The enormous capillary action and liquid absorption, the chemical and acid resistance and, last but not least, the high cleaning power applied by Spontex viscose sponges enables application in many manual and mechanical production sequences. Now is the time to convince yourself about the versatile application facilities offered by Spontex viscose materials.

Cleaning, wiping & applying with custom made sponges
High fluid absorbtion and retention
the natural cellulose sponge is able to absorb high amounts of fluid and is able to retend it too. In numbers, the sponge absorbes more than 20-time its own weight. These ability is not only given with water, but also with all hydrous substances i.e. oil, gasoline and alcohol (ethanol, methanol, propanol, butanol)
In chemical analysis natural cellulose sponge showed a surprising stability. Only acidic solutions (depending on the concentration) proved incompatible with the material.
Electrical conductivity of natural cellulose sponge in moist condition is outstanding.
Combustibility & temperature sensitivity
Combustibility, as to be expected with cellulose-based materials, occurs at low level. Corresponding impregnating fluids can vary the combustibility rate. Thermographic analysis with cellulose sponge showed heat decomposition at approx. 250 degrees Celsius.
The cellulose sponge is able to filter gas and liquids from some impurities, depending on which material.
Natural cellulose sponge decomposes with time without endangering the environment. Furthermore, natural cellulose sponge can be washed, disinfected and sterilized.
the cleaning properties of cellulose sponges from Spontex are acknowledged from consumers all over the world and also helpful in industrial environments
Light-weight of cellulose sponge needs no further comment. This advantage, especially in connection with compressed state, offers good proposition for logistics, transportation, ecological environmet and resulting costs savings.
