General Benefits of CreaFill Fibers
CRACKING AND SHRINKING INHIBITOR
INCREASED VOLUMETRIC COVERAGE
INCREASED GREEN STRENGTH
Cellulose was identified in 1838 by the French chemist Anselm Payen and was used to produce the first successful Thermoplastic Polymer, celluloid, in 1870. Today, Cellulose continues to be an important component in a growing number of industrial applications.
Because of their low density, only small percentages of our fibers are generally required to achieve benefits in aesthetics and performance characteristics. CreaFill Fibers improve dimensional stability, deliver the desired rheological effects, viscosity, shear thinning, textural requirements and, are non-hazardous.
The addition of CreaFill Fibers can directly increase ability to modify and control the viscosity of a formulation.
CreaFill Fibers will impart significant crack resistance and finished products can acquire a "nail able" quality when a sufficient amount of our fibers is added to a formulation.
CreaFill Fibers can be used to modify the finish, smooth or textured, depending upon the fiber length and amount used in an application.
CreaFill Fibers can be used in paints and coatings to provide film strength and bridging strength.
CreaFill adheres to the highest quality control practices and is ISO 9001/200 certified:
Our Quality management System meets the highest industry standards and ensures that we deliver a dependable product, assuring consistency and thus superior performance. CreaFill Fibers is Committed to Quality and we have developed very strict specifications for our fibers, testing for quality throughout the manufacturing process.
Every finished lot is tested for all critical properties and characteristics and a Certificate of Analysis is issued to assure our adherence to quality standards and total customer satisfaction.
We are all faced with rising costs which never seem to come back down. With steady cost increases and budgetary limitations businesses are always scrambling to find ways to mitigate operating and capital expenses. One useful tool they are all discovering is sustainability, of raw materials, methods and practices and efficient use of newly identified, lower cost products.
Cellulose is a renewable and sustainable resource with great promise for future development in industrial
applications as an environmentally preferable resource.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools for achieving “LEED” certification.
The use of CreaFill Cellulose Fiber products offers a range of benefits which enhance and protect ecosystems and biodiversity, improve air and water quality, reduce solid waste and conserve natural resources.
For over ten years, CreaFill has been producing the CreaMix product range of fibers from reclaimed magazine, newspaper, office and kraft stock. CreaFill UPCYCLES these papers into carefully milled and refined functional fillers for the wide range of building and other applications.
All of our CreaTech, high alpha-cellulose products are derived from Forestry Stewardship Council approved, Elemental Chlorine Free pulps. CreaFill provides fibers which may serve a range of purposes from fillers to enhancers, always exhibiting properties and characteristics required to meet a manufacturer's requirements in a range of industrial applications:
• THERMOSET & THERMOPLASTIC
• CEMENT, GROUTS, MORTARS & STUCCO
• FRICTION MATERIALS
• ASPHALT COMPOUNDS, ROOF COATINGS
• ATHLETIC COURT SURFACE COATINGS
• ADHESIVES& SEALANTS
• WELDING RODS
• REFRACTORY APPLICATIONS
• ROAD CONSTRUCTION
• PAPER & PAPERBOARD
• NONWOVEN SUBSTRATES
VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS
CreaFill fibers are used in a range of:
and many more
Thermoplastic and Thermoset Applications
Thermoplastic/cellulosic composites consist of CreaFill fibers blended with polymers - PVC, polypropylene, HDPE, Nylon and Nylon 6 and the full range of polymers. The low density, relatively low cost, non-abrasive nature of our fibers coupled with the physical and mechanical properties provided through the function of “matrix building” make them an outstanding choice as a reinforcement in the full range of “plastic” composites.
CreaFill Fibers can deliver reinforcement and stiffness and are ideal for use in the production of rubber hoses, belts, gasket and molded rubber products, when required and at appropriate dosing levels.
Our fibers will impart improved green strength in unvulcanized sheeting materials at low dosing levels. Absorbing moisture during vulcanization the use of CreaFill fibers will reduce shrinkage during cooling, following vulcanization.
Roof Coatings CreaFill’s fibers are:
• Insoluble in water and organic solvents;
• Three-dimensional matrix builders;
• Resistant to dilute acids, alkalis and other chemicals.
Furthermore, they provide:
• A homogenous and consistent mix while increasing volumetric coverage;
• Durability during expansion and contraction of the membrane;
• Increased temperature flexibility;
• Shrink and crack resistance.
CreaFill fibers are engineered as a reinforcement agent in the production of roof coatings, modified bituminous roofs and sealants.
With reliability and proven performance our cellulose fibers have achieved a benchmark status as substitutes for environmentally hazardous or sensitive additives and as a natural substance, cellulose is a nonhazardous, environmentally safe product contributing to a healthier, safer workplace and planet.
CreaFill is proud to be a member of the RCMA and will work diligently to promote and Advance the technologies and business opportunities of the Roof Coating industry and our valued customers.
Natural cellulose powders and fibers offer the coatings formulator a broad range of multifunctional use. Select, high quality raw materials are carefully processed to meet exacting specifications for specific application performance.
CreaFill works extensively to develop value added properties of fibers to enhance the finished product. Whether your requirements call for a filler, extender or modifier, CreaFill will meet the challenge.
Adhesives CreaFill Cellulose fibers:
Improve adhesive formulations; acrylic, butyl, epoxy, latex, solvent, water or 100% solids system; Stabilize viscosity, increase tensile strength, add lightweight bulk and improve sag control; ensure a consistent product of unparalleled quality and consistency. CreaFill fibers are available in a wide range of fiber lengths and diameters.
CreaFill Fibers will reinforce wall coating, extend working time, prevent cracking, control sag and slump and eliminate pin holes.
It has been recognized that when small quantities of cellulose fibers are added to stucco, there is a dramatic improvement in the stucco’s performance.
After adding cellulose to typical stucco mixes at a ratio of 1 part cellulose fibers to 100 parts cement, by weight, researchers have found improvements in a variety of characteristics, including ductility, flexural strength, bond strength, abrasion resistance, durability, and resistance to cracking and impact. Unlike synthetic fibers cellulose fibers are invisible, even when used in the finish coat.
CreaFill Fibers will provide structural reinforcement, improve rheology and the control of viscosity. Our fibers can be used as an extender to reduce the use of more expensive methylcellulose.
Our fibers, carefully selected for fiber length and width, may be used to modify the surface aesthetics and can be used to create a matte like, non-skid surface in flooring applications.
Tiles and Grouts
CreaFill Fibers help to control viscosity, improve and extend curing, and extend “working” time while adding strength properties through the formation of reinforcing matrices.
CreaFill Fibers are an economical, low density material which can act as a filler while also adding measurable structural reinforcement.
