Our products and components are important tools in the automotive industries. The various applications of Spontex sponge can be the solution for lubricating parts, oiling & sealing. We already participate in many different applications and are always looking to support new developments.
There are various applications for Spontex cellulose sponges in chemical markets, listed below:
Ship-building (for sealing cable ducts in cable bulkheads)
Petrochemical Industry (various filtration processes)
Cooling Processes (absorbing moistures)
Labs for microbiological analysis
Our cellulose sponge is of natural origin and made of wood, cotton and linen. This makes it a luxury, hypoallergenic and biodegradable product. Its natural fibers are very absorbent which retains fluids and enables an even spread of all liquids.
We can offer personalised volumes, shapes and great variety of colours. We also offer special characteristics for cosmetic usage like the incorporation of melamine particles to exfoliate, scrub and tone up the body.
Cellulose Sponges have become solutions for many medical uses, for example:
Wound Care Products
The development from raw material to monofilament takes place on a monofilament production line. Some of the finished products can be artificial turf, tennis strings, brushes or fishing lines.
In this process heat is needed, because of this water or cooling liquids are also needed to clean and cool down the filaments. Cellulose sponge is used at the end of the line to absorb and wipe off the excess liquids.
Different types of packaging require the cellulose sponge to be used for different functions.
Transportation packaging of hazardous liquids
The natural capillary action of the viscose material results in an extremely high liquid absorption capacity. This property is often used for wiping or absorbing processes for various materials and surfaces. A frequent application is the drying of surfaces such as steel belts, cables or filament threads on a production line.
The manufacturing of strapping tapes whether made from steel or PET is done with very fast and efficient strap tape lines. In many extrusion processes a long rectangular viscose sponge is placed at the end of line. The functions of this sponge are different depending on the specific application. At the end of a steel strapping line it wipes and absorbs liquid to produce a clean product. The function of the sponge at the end of a PET strapping line is different. A screw technology processes flakes of (recycled) PET so they melt which allows the strapping tape to expand. Heat is needed for this process therefore the product has to be cooled down after. This is achieved adding water or cooling liquids later absorbed/wiped by the viscose sponge at the end of the strapping line.
Whether for industrial use or in your own house, Spontex viscose sponges are known across the world for their excellent cleaning performance. The soft but extremely resistant material enables gentle but thorough cleaning of surfaces, plastics, metals and ceramics. The chemical and solvent resistance of the viscose material can be enriched with cleaning agents if required. This allows it to be adapted to special requirements.
We deliver our various solutions to many technical wholesalers and converters all over the world; Finished products, customized products and raw materials.
