Goonvean Fibres recommends modacrylic fibre for applications where a combination of softness, strength, resilience, and dimension stabilty are demanded. Modacrylic fibres can be easily dyed, show good press and shape retention, and are quick to dry. They have outstanding resistance to chemicals and solvents.

Goonvean Fibres offers a short cut 17 decitex precision cut fibre that is used in applications where fibre strength and resiliance are required. As the material is resistant to high temperature and does not burn it is commonly used as an intumescent material in adhesives, resins and paints.
