Grasim is one of India’s major Viscose Filament Yarn (VFY) player. Also known as rayon, VFY is a natural fibre which can be made to resemble silk, cotton and wool in its feel and texture. Known for its versatility, VFY has superior drape, fluidity and lustre which makes it a popular choice for manufacturing fabrics such as georgettes, crepes and chiffons. Manufactured under the brand name, Raysil (formerly RayOne), by Grasim’s Indian Rayon unit, the VFY comes in a wide range of 600 shades with the flexibility of reproducing any shade to suit customer needs.
The VFY business became a part of Grasim on 1st July, 2017, following the merger of Aditya Birla Nuvo Ltd. Subsequently, Grasim acquired the rights to operate and manage the Century Rayon division of Century Textiles and Industries Ltd. (CTIL) from the 1st of February, 2018. Since then, Grasim’s production of VFY capacity has increased from 21 KTPA to 47 KTPA. It also accounts for 55% of VFY exports from India making it the largest exporter of VFY in India.
