Cellulose acetate is produced from wood pulp. Cellulose acetate is prevalently found in forms such as granules of fibre, powder, and granules. Cellulose acetate possesses physical properties like transparency, toughness, good dimensional stability, and deep gloss, which make it a very important material with varied uses. It has high chemical resistance and heat resistance.
Cellulose acetate is available in the market as cellulose acetate flakes, cellulose acetate esters, and other forms. Primary applications of cellulose acetate are cigarette filter tow and textile fibres due to its property of absorbance. Cellulose acetate finds its applications in magnetic computer tape, wound dressings, personal hygiene products, absorbent cloths, and wipes.
