First U.S. Commercial Triacetate Fiber Production: 1954, Celanese Corporation (Triacetate is not currently produced in the United States)
Basic Principles of Triacetate Fiber Production — Triacetate is derived from cellulose by combining cellulose with acetate from acetic acid and acetate anhydride. The cellulose acetate is dissolved in a mixture of methylene chloride and methanol for spinning. As the filaments emerge from the spinneret the solvent is evaporated in warm air — dry spinning — leaving a fiber of almost pure cellulose acetate. Triacetate fibers contain a higher ratio of acetate-to-cellulose than do acetate fibers.
