A.5 What is ARBOCEL® ?
ARBOCEL® is a powdery to fibrous cellulose
additive for use in construction chemical
products.
ARBOCEL® additives are produced from
cellulose. A whole range of renewable
raw materials is available for producing
cellulose.
®
ARBOCEL are water-insoluble celluloses
left in their natural state (not comparable
to water-soluble cellulose ethers).

A. General Information
A.7 Properties of ARBOCEL® Cellulose Fibers
From the finest grades with a mean fiber length of 10 µm to the longest fiber grades with a
mean fiber length of 2000 µm.
Composite densities in finished products: 1.1 - 1.3 g/cm³.
In the long-fiber grades, curved fibers have a “felting” effect.
ARBOCEL® cellulose fibers are also used as an asbestos substitute.
Usually 30 - 50 % of the weight of asbestos previously used is sufficient.
Completely safe and therefore suitable as substitute for asbestos in many applications.
The steady-state moisture content of ARBOCEL® cellulose fibers is approx. 10 - 12 %. ARBOCEL®
is normally supplied with a moisture content in the range of 4 - 8 %. In this form ARBOCEL®
cellulose is slightly hygroscopic (water-absorbing). We therefore recommend that it is stored
in a dry place.
Insoluble in water and organic solvents.
Resistant to dilute acids and bases.
Guide values for temperature exposure:
160 °C for several days
180 °C for approx. 1 day
200 °C is the limit of thermal exposure
Water that penetrates into the fiber capillaries reaches the freezing point at approximately -70 °C.
As a result of the formation of hydrogen bridge bonds between cellulose and water, the structure
of the water is modified in such a way that the water is more compact at low temperatures than
in liquid form. In practice this means complete frost protection of ARBOCEL® fibers (no bursting effect
possible as with ice).

ARBOCEL®
Natural Cellulose Fibers
B.1 Why is ARBOCEL® Used?
ARBOCEL® Fiber
1. Strong thickening effect / fiber reinforcement
ARBOCEL® cellulose fibers form a three-dimensional
framework with pronounced cross-linking
effect. The cross-links trap liquids (water, emulsions,
bitumen, etc.) in the structure. The greater the average
fiber length, the greater is the thickening effect.
Thanks to these properties, ARBOCEL® has proved to
be a suitable asbestos replacement.
Mechanism of action - 3D fiber network
2. Improved processing characteristics thanks
to the structural viscosity behavior of
ARBOCEL® fibers
When shear forces act on the system (e.g. through
stirring, pumping, etc.), some of the liquid trapped in
the fiber structure is released into the matrix. The
fibers align along the flow direction and consequently
are able to slide past each other. The system becomes
liquid (decrease of the viscosity). When the material
is at rest, the fiber structure reforms, immediately retrapping the liquid, i.e. the original viscosity state is
immediately restored.

Liquid can be absorbed and transported through
the ARBOCEL® capillaries. Once the system has
set, the ARBOCEL® fibers are bound in the matrix,
i.e. embedded in the binder, preventing any further
absorption of moisture (e.g. from rain).

No slippage during processing in the just-applied
state. As a result, much thicker coats can be applied in a single step.

C.2 Blending Instructions
for Dry Mixtures:
Short (40 µm - 120 µm) to medium-length
(120 µm- 500 µm) ARBOCEL® fibers are
usually easy to blend. If high-performance
mixers with swirlers / cutter heads (e.g.
Eirich, Lödige, Drais or m-tec blades)
are available, it is typically possible to
blend ARBOCEL® long fibers.
1. It is essential that the working consistency is
adjusted, not the appearance, since ARBOCEL®
fibers have structural viscous properties. This
means that the viscosity appears greater at rest
than when shear forces are at work (i.e. when the
product is being stirred, applied by brush, etc.).
2. If the original water/cement values need to
be maintained, the increased water requirement
due to ARBOCEL® must be compensated for by
adjusting the proportion of cement or binder by
weight.

D.2 Mixing Notes
®
Blending ARBOCEL fibers is usually straight forward.
The addition of wetting agents is normally not required.
In order to reach the final viscosity more quickly, it is
advisable to add ARBOCEL® in the aqueous phase.
®
ARBOCEL can also be added after production of the
batch for controlling viscosity. If dissolvers are used,
it is recommended that ARBOCEL® be added at the end
of the mixing process. Even small amounts of ARBOCEL®
will significantly increase the viscosity of an emulsionbound system. The longer the fibers of the ARBOCEL®
type used, the greater is the viscosity increase.
D.3 Guidance Notes
The consistency of the ARBOCEL® formulation
must be set for an optimum tradeoff between
workability and slump resistance. Keep in mind
that with systems containing ARBOCEL® it is not
the apparent consistency at rest that should be
set but rather the working consistency.
Systems in which ARBOCEL® is completely at
rest are more viscous.

ARBOCEL®
Natural Cellulose Fibers
E. Bituminous Systems
E.1 ARBOCEL® Grades Used:
E.2 Guidance Notes:
The grades most commonly used in the bitumen
sector are ARBOCEL® ZZ 8/1 G and ARBOCEL® ZZC 500.
When used as an asbestos replacement, 30 % to
maximum 50 % by weight of the asbestos quantity
previously used is usually sufficient.
– The longer the average fiber length of the
ARBOCEL® grade, the greater is its yield and
the more the viscosity is increased.
The resulting deficiency of volume should be
compensated for by the addition of a suitable
filler.
Bituminous Systems
ARBOCEL® cellulose fibers result in:
– Greater thickening
– Extremely good slump resistance even in hot
environments (over 90 °C)
– Good workability
In comparison to group 7 asbestos, ARBOCEL® ZZ 8/1 G
gives a rougher and less glossy surface. If a smoother
surface is required, it is recommended that
ARBOCEL® ZZC 500 be used. Since this product is a
shorter fiber, 20 - 40 % more ARBOCEL® by weight
must be added in comparison to ARBOCEL® ZZ 8/1 G.
– The larger the amount of ARBOCEL® used,
the greater the cross-linking effect of the fiber
structure formed. The fiber structure enhances
the thermal resistance of the formulation.
– The fiber structure results in bitumen being
deposited on the fibers.
– The shorter the average fiber length of the
ARBOCEL® grade, the smoother the surface of
the finished product.
– If dissolvers are used, we recommend that
the fibers be added at the end of the blending
process.
– With moderate to low-viscosity cold bitumen
compounds, sedimentation may occur. This
can be inhibited by stabilizers such as
magnesium coated silicates or pyrogenic silicic
acids.
– In the case of bitumen systems that are applied
by airless spray, the correct ARBOCEL® grade
for the nozzle size must be used to prevent
clogging.
Softening point
[° C]
ARBOCEL®
Asbestos 7M
[% fiber by weight]
– The use of ARBOCEL® fibers can result in a
subsequent thickening effect, thus raising the
viscosity. This effect also occurs in bitumen
products containing solvents (sol-gel changes),
especially in cold bitumen with a petroleum
spirit base. Normally this effect runs its course
in a matter of a few days.
– It is also interesting to note that the softening
point is higher when the same amount is
added in comparison to asbestos 7 M and that
it also increases more steeply.

E.3 Applications / Quantities
E.3.1 Vibration dampening pads
These are 2 mm embossed sheets which are usually
applied directly to car panels to suppress noise.
Amount used:
0.8 - 3.0 % ARBOCEL® ZZ 8/1 G by weight
E.3.2 Expansion Bands
These are used as a joint material, e.g. in highway
construction in the joint between consolidation
strips (concrete to asphalt or concrete to concrete).
The tape is activated by heating.
Quantity used:
approx. 5.0 - 8.0 % ARBOCEL® ZZ 8/1 G
by weight
Advantages with ARBOCEL® :

ARBOCEL® is usually used only in medium
and high-viscosity systems.
E.3.4 Medium and high-viscosity spray
and brush-applied compounds
2.0 - 4.0 % ARBOCEL® ZZ 8/1 G by weight (brush-applied use)
3.0 - 5.0 % ARBOCEL® ZZC 500 by weight (spray-applied use)
Advantages with ARBOCEL® :
– Replaces asbestos
– Inhibits cracking
– Permits thicker coats to be applied in one process
– Greatly increases heat resistance of coats, i.e. no running
down vertical walls

Bituminous Systems
Advantages with ARBOCEL® :
– Replaces asbestos
– Greatly increases heat resistance
– Reduces tendency of aluminum particles
(in product) to settle out
– In bitumen foils partial replacement of
SBS possible
Note:
In general when ARBOCEL® is used in bitumen
emulsions it must be ensured that the ARBOCEL®
is added in small portions to the bitumen emulsion
while stirring. (If too much ARBOCEL® is added, the
bitumen emulsion can separate and form lumps).
The rest of the material can then be added
and blended.
ARBOCEL® is usually used in anionic bitumen emulsions.
