How cellophane is made?

Cellophane is made of cellulose from cotton, wood, hemp or other natural resources. It starts out as a white dissolving pulp, which contains 92%-98% cellulose. Then, the raw cellulose pulp is converted into cellophane through the following four steps.
1. The cellulose is dissolved in alkali (alkaline ion salt of alkali metal chemicals) and then aged for several days. This dissolution process is called mercerizing. This dissolution process is called mercerizing.
2. Carbon disulfide is applied to mercerized pulp to produce a solution called cellulose xanthate or viscose.
3. This solution was then added to a mixture of sodium sulfate and dilute sulfuric acid. This changes the solution back to cellulose.
4. Then, the cellulose membrane was washed three more times. Remove the sulfur, then bleach the film, and finally add glycerin to maintain durability. Finally, cellophane is made.
