Specialty cellulose

Seizing an opportunity: Leadership in action

Our wood fiber solution became the benchmark for cellulose ethers 

Declining supplies of cotton linter pulp free of GMO (genetically modified organisms) created an opportunity for Tembec to develop high viscosity specialty cellulose from wood fiber for the cellulose ethers industry. And over the years, Tembec has developed increasingly higher viscosities, with our products becoming the industry benchmark. 

Our high viscosity and dependable supplies have made us the world's leading supplier of specialty cellulose to this business line. Tembec has a taste for leadership, so we continue to make a significant R&D commitment to ensure our products deliver exactly what the cellulose ethers industry needs.
