Viscose staple fibers are fibers that are regenerated from cellulose fiber. The raw materials that are used include soluble solulose xanthates and natural solulose which are made through the process of alkalization, aging, and other process. Viscose staple fiber are also considered as hybrid nylon fiber which are used to produce different types of functional clothing and apparel. Such fibers help in the retention of moisture, and they do not easily shrink and are considered to be biodegradable.
Rise in the demand for clothing and different kinds of apparel among consumers has resulted in the rise in demand for viscose staple fiber. The viscose process involved dissolves the pulp which is used with the solution of sodium hydroxide and in the existence of carbon disulfide. Viscose rayon fiber is the fiber that is commonly used in linings, dresses, shorts, shirts, jackets, coats, and others. It is also used in industrial yarns such as carpets and upholstery and also in the casting of cellophane.
