CEL SL1 Press Release mentions Tencel fibrillation in hydroentanglement (1991)

Anon., Medical Textiles, Sept 1991, p9

This was more important than it looks.  If memory serves, when the embargo on patenting was lifted we tried to patent nonwovens made from Tencel fibrillated in high pressure hydroentanglement and this publication was used to show the effect was already in the public domain.  Patenting was therefore not possible.
