Wet Cellulose

Natural Cellulose Sponges

Natural cellulose sponges are the ideal choice in environments which demand high levels of absorption. This makes them the overwhelming sponge of choice for anyone involved in domestic washing or cleaning. They are equally useful as face cleansing products, and so can be found in many beauticians and spas. They are flexible enough to be provided in expanded form, or as a compressed version which is approximately 10-15% of the original thickness. This leads to savings in storage, packaging and transportation costs.

The high water absorption offered by natural cellulose also makes it ideal for use in the decorating and automotive sectors, as it is capable of holding as much as 15 times its original weight in liquids without a marked increase in size. It is also an extremely eco-friendly product, being naturally degradable, and is available in a range of thicknesses and colours.

The Key Advantages of Natural Cellulose Sponges

  • Highly water absorbent – can hold up to 15 times its original weight
  • Eco-friendly and naturally degradable
  • can save space, storage and shipping costs through compression
  • Highly durable
  • Resistant to the majority of chemicals and liquids

We supply cellulose sponges in their natural ‘wet’ form or compressed as outlined above. Compression involves removing all the moisture from a sponge, so that a 25mm thick sponge becomes just 5mm thick. When wet again, the sponge will return to its original thickness.

Another advantage of compressed cellulose is that the surface can be printed onto directly. The addition of text or a logo to one or both sides of a sponge turns it into a highly effective marketing and promotional tool. The gallery contains images demonstrating this. We can supply wet cellulose sponge in a range of formats:

  • Wet Cellulose Sponge
  • Wet Cellulose Foam Sheets
  • Wet Cellulose Pads
  • Wet Cellulose Foam Shapes
