Cellulosic Derivatives

Cellulosic Derivatives Daicel’s history began with the manufacture of celluloid from cellulose nitrate as a cellulosic derivative.
We have made the industrialization of cellulose acetate based on these technologies, thereafter, we implemented spinning technology and started production of acetate tow.
In addition, Daicel expand our production of various cellulosic derivatives such as water-soluble polymers. These products have helped in various fields in our life.
  • Cellulose Acetate
    Cellulose acetate made from natural cellulose is one of sustainable material that is friendly to both people and the environment.
  • Acetate tow
    Acetate tow is used in the majority of filtered cigarettes which is sold around the world.
  • Spherical cellulose acetate
    Spherical cellulose acetate, with a good balance of hydrophilicity and hydrophobicity, elicits a feeling of softness and smoothness.
  • Water-soluble Polymer
    Various water-soluble polymer made from natural pulp can be found in many of the products we use every day, including foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and electronic materials.
