Product overview

Milled (flock) Cotton < 500 microns

Goonvean Fibres produces a range of cotton flocks that are widely used as reinforcement and process aids (pre-form production) particularly in friction products. Cellulosic fibres char rather than melt when subjected to heat during braking, this is an important property in this application.

Our range of friction products offers a number of benefits. From a health and safety perspective, friction formulations no longer use asbestos fibres due to legislation. Instead they incorporate alternative synthetic and natural fibres. Recycled and cellulosic fibres and flocks (pulps) are used in friction product formulation to extend more expensive virgin fibres.

Cotton flocks are also used in many other non-woven applications including the manufacture of fine paper and some grades are used to thicken and reinforce epoxy resins to produce filleting grades.
