SYNTHETIC RAW MATERIALS

POLYESTER - PES

Synthetic fibre made from long-chain hydrocarbons. High stability and elongation, thermoplastic, multifunctional. acid-proof, low heat conductivity, extremely weatherproof and high UV resistance.

 

POLYPROPYLENE - PP

Synthetic fibre made from unsaturated hydrocarbons (polyolefine), low specific weight (buoyant), alkali and acid-proof, low stability and high elongation, good weathering resistance but sensitive to UV.

 

POLYPHENYLENE SULFIDE – PPS

Highly heat-resistant fibre, properties comparable to polyester, however much better thermal stability and higher elongation but lower UV resistance.

 

POLYETHYLENE - PE

Synthetic fibre from ethylene, low specific weight (buoyant), highly alkali and acid-proof, good weathering resistance, sensitive to UV.

 

POLYAMIDE – PA

PA6: synthetic fibre from caprolactam, PA6.6: hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid, PA 6.6 and PA 6 have similar chemical properties, high stability, rigidity and elongation, thermoplastic, multifunctional, low heat conductivity, extremely weatherproof and high UV resistance, PA6.6 better fastness to abrasion and wearing.

SYNTHETIC RAW MATERIALS

 

AROMATIC POLYESTER - Vectran®

LCP (liquid crystal polymer) high tear resistant modified (aromatic) polyester, extremely high tensile strength, high modulus of elasticity, low elongation, low moisture intake, high resistance to chemicals, low UV resistance.

 

DYNEEMA®

Synthetic chemical fibre on basis of polyethylene (Ultra-High-Molecular-Weight Polyethylene = UHMW-PE), only spin dyeing possible, high-tensile, buoyant, low heat resistance but resistant to extreme minus temperatures, good cut resistance, good weather resistance, high UV resistance.

 

PARA-ARAMID

Chemical fibre on synthetic basis, made from modified (aromatic) polyamide, highly tear resistant and hard-wearing, hardly stainable, extremely low elongation, very good weather resistance but low UV resistance in direct sunlight.

 

NOVOLOID

Chemical fibre from synthetic of phenolic resin and formaldehyde, high thermal stability and short-time resistance to extreme temperatures.

 

META-ARAMID

Chemical fibre on synthetic basis, made from modified (aromatic) polyamide, highly heat-resistant, mainly used for flameproof protective equipment, only spin dyeing possible, flexible fibre with rather soft grip, absolutely weatherproof, low tensile strength.

Natural fibres

COTTON

 

Seed fibre from the cotton plant. Dull appearance, easy cleaning, fast to washing and boil-washing, colour and sweat fast dyeing possible, good wet and dry tearing strength.

 

LINEN (FLAX)

 

Bast or stem fibre from the flax plant. Excellent dyeing properties and extreme colour fastness. Shiny like silk, strong fibre abrasion on processing, easy cleaning, highly tearproof and high water-absorbing capacity, cooling effect, tendency to ‘scratching’, good UV resistance.

 

VISCOSE

 

Chemical fibre on cellulosic basis (wood etc.). Good dyeing properties. Boil-proof but low wet tearing strength, mirror-bright or deep dull, white and spun-dyed, cool, smooth, stain-resistant.

 

ACETATE

 

Chemical fibre on cellulosic basis (rayon staple or cotton seed fibres), usually spun-dyed, highly brilliant colours, not boil-proof, low dry strength and even lower wet tearing strength, soft grip, crease-resistant.

RENEWABLE RAW MATERIALS

POLYLACTIC FIBRE – PLA

 

Synthetic fibre from lactic acid esters from natural sugar or starch (for example maize), good resistance, high elasticity, acid-proof, sensitive to alkali, weatherproof, UV resistance better than PES.

 

 

Composite Materials

CARBON FIBRES

Carbon fibres: fibres made from basic material containing carbon (mainly PAN) transformed by means of treatment by pyrolysis (oxidation and carbonization) into graphite-like carbon, heat-resistant fibre, high solidity and rigidity.

 

GLASS FIBRES

Fibre from alkali-free special glass, fibres obtained from hot melt, incombustible, good rot resistance, low moisture intake, low elongation, high chemical resistance, UV resistant, heat resistant.

 

BASALT FIBRES

Fibre from basaltic rock, fibres obtained from hot melt, high solidity, incombustible, low elongation, good rot resistance, low moisture intake, high chemical resistance, heat resistant, UV resistant.
