Viscose is produced from wood pulp. Cellulose from wood fibers is treated with sodium hydroxide, and then mixed with carbon disulfide to form cellulose xanthate, which is dissolved in more sodium hydroxide. The resulting viscose is extruded into an acid bath either through a slit to make cellophane, or through a spinneret to make rayon. The acid converts the viscose back into cellulose.
Viscose is a unique form of wood cellulose acetate that can be used to manufacture number of different types of products. Viscose can also be made into the more common form of rayon that is used for many types of textile products, including clothing. Viscose rayon has a silky appearance and feel, and also has the ability to breathe in a manner similar to cotton weaves.
One of the more popular properties of viscose rayon is that the fabric tends to drape very well, which makes it ideal for use in curtains, as well as the perfect fabric to line more formal draperies. Viscose is also being used for linings and furnishing fabrics; providing the staple for towels and table-cloths. Yet other uses included the manufacture of sponges and absorbent cloths.
