Difference Between Rayon And Viscose

- Jan 26, 2019 -

Silk has been a very popular cloth since it was first developed in China, but it was very expensive so that people searched for a cheaper substitute for it. This led to the development of rayon.

Rayon is a manufactured fiber which is neither natural nor artificial. Although it comes from cellulose, which occurs naturally in plants, it has undergone several chemical processes before it is turned into its present form. It is called a regenerated cellulose fiber because it is made with cellulose fiber which is reformed or reconstructed.

Viscose rayon is made from viscose, an organic liquid, which is used as a material in producing rayon and cellophane. It is also used to make art silk, modal, and synthetic velvet. It also has uses in the medical field, especially in the production of medical tools.

It is made by dissolving wood pulp or cotton linter in caustic soda and letting it soak for period of time after which it is shredded and aged. It is then treated with carbon disulfide to produce xanthate which is again dissolved in a low concentration of caustic soda and an acetate dope.

Viscose rayon feels like cotton and looks like silk which is suitable for making light clothing. It also drapes well and is used to make curtains, draperies, furniture covers, tablecloths, and napkins. It is cheap .
