Sappi Biochemtech B.V.

Valida is highly fibrillated cellulose manufactured by Sappi, a 100% natural, biodegradable and sustainable material produced by mechanically processing wood derived cellulose fibres down to their smallest components, resulting in a large surface area and enhanced mechanical, optical, chemical and physical properties.
These properties and the unique rheology profile, thixotropic – high viscosity at rest and highly shear thinning, make fibrillated cellulose suitable for a wide range of applications, such as cosmetics, coatings, adhesives, detergents and more.
Valida delivers robust performance in temperature, pH, electrolytes and surfactants, allowing for effective thickening and improved stability in extreme conditions.

Sappi is a diversified woodfibre group with manufacturing operations in three continents. With sales in over 150 countries and continued investments in R&D to meet growing market demands for high quality functional biomaterials, Sappi has established a leadership position when it comes to woodfibre solutions. As a global supplier of woodfibre technologies, we consider sustainability as a moral and business imperative that affects each and every decision we make across all processes and products.
