Polyester fibre is a very strong and stable manmade fibre that is widely used in many industries. Polyester is resistant to stretching and shrinking and perhaps more importantly for industrial applications it is resistant to abrasion and acid degradation. Polyester has a relatively high specific gravity, leading to it dispersing well in water and a relatively high melting point making it a good all round choice for a variety of applications. The short cut 3.3 decitex grade is widely used in the manufacture of lead oxide paste with cut lengths 1.6mm and 3mm being most common.
Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging, textiles and automotive components. It is rugged and unusually resistant to many chemical solvents, bases and acids making it an ideal material for use in Lead Acid Batteries and concrete.
Nylon is a generic designation for a family of synthetic polymers known as polyamides. Nylon is one of the most commonly used polymers and has found applications in everything from tooth brushes to textile manufacture. The most common grades used in industrial reinforcement are Nylon 6 and Nylon 6.6
Nylon flocks can be used to reinforce thermosetting resins for the compression moulding of electrical components. Composites reinforced by fibre flocks offer low warpage and excellent wear and abrasion resistance for applications including chain guides, gears, bearings, compressor vanes and impellers.
Natural ground olive stones are odorless organic materials ground to fine flours, granules and pits. These inexpensive natural materials are used in a variety of applications such as paints, cosmetics and non slip coatings.
