Open pore

Open pore

The open pore structure of the material in conjunction with its hydrophilic properties, cohesion, adhesion and the van der Waals forces secure its absorptive properties.

Furthermore, the open pore structure creates a greater surface area which on the other side creates a better environment for binding of specific agents. The cellulose fibers well embedded in the regenerated cellulose create a 3 dimensional net of pores with different pore sizes.
