Synthetic Fibres and Powders

Below is a list of key raw materials we offer and associated benefits. However this list is not an exhaustive list of materials we manufacture, so if you require synthetic fibres and powders not shown below please do contact us directly.

We also offer combinations of the following materials in the form of bi-components & composites, again if this is something you require, please contact us directly.

Acrylic

Versatile and durable, acrylic is used in a number of applications. Characteristics include rigidity, resistance to most solvents and chemicals, resistance to heat and burning, and impermeability to gases.

Modacrylic

Modacrylic fibres are soft, strong, and resilient that are often used to manufacture personal protective equipment (PPE) and filters. Characteristics include high environmental resistance, flame retardancy, low density, softness, good dispersion, and outstanding resistance to chemicals and solvents.

Aramid

Aramid fibres are strong, heat-resistant fibres that are commonly used in military and industrial applications. Benefits include extremely high strength, durability, resistance to solvents and chemicals, and low flammability.

Nylon

Nylon is an extremely common material which can be added to a wide range of products. Characteristics include durability, sunlight and sun damage resistance, high melting point, good elasticity and elastic recovery, and softness.

Polyester

Polyester fibres and powders are commonly used either as the primary material in a product or as an addition to increase performance. Benefits include high strength, resistance to stretching and shrinkage, stain resistance, and invulnerability to most chemicals, acids, and alkalis.

Polyethylene

Polyethylene, or PE, is a wear resistant plastic used in a wide range of applications. Characteristics include flexibility, high impact strength, resistance to chemicals and solvents, and zero water absorption.

Polypropylene

Polypropylene, or PP, is used in a wide variety of applications due to its toughness, versatility, and resistance to heat and chemicals. Other benefits include flexibility, fatigue resistance, and low density.
