Cialux cloth is made from spun rayon yarn, which is composed of short-length filament threads. Environmentally friendly and exceptionally well suited for covering book covers, catalogs, stationery, diaries etc. Ideal for off-set printing, screen printing, and hot foil blocking.
Cialux is colorfast to water, light and abrasion, and has improved durability over other natural finish cloths. It processes well on Horauf, Kolbus, WBF Stall, and Smith manufacturing equipment.

Cialux is perfectly suited for all high end hand and production bookbinding, such as trade books, cookbooks, book clubs, religious/hymnals, University Press, college textbooks, yearbooks, and coffee table/museum books.
