Material options

Depending on the fiber material used for production, its respective properties are transferred to the finished product. Consequently, product solutions can be perfectly tailored to the intended future application.

An overview of the typical properties of our fiber can be found below:

Aramid fibers

  • Extremely stiff and strong
  • Shock absorbing and impact resistant
  • Hard wearing and wear resistant
  • Temperature resistant and inert to most chemicals

(E-)glass fibers

  • Excellent mechanical, thermal and dielectric (non-conductive) properties
  • Non-combustible and temperature resistant
  • Inert to most chemicals
  • Resistant to weathering

Carbon fibers

  • Extremely stiff and pressure resistant
  • Excellent fatigue strength at dynamic load exposure
  • Low thermal expansion (negative expansion coefficient)
  • UV light resistant
  • Low weight = ideal for lightweight constructions

Polypropylene (PP) fibers

  • Extremely resistant against fatigue
  • Especially strong, stiff and hard
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Very low density of 0.91 g/cm3 (lower than that of water) allows the production of lightweight woven fabrics
  • Hydrophobic
  • Resistant to non-oxidizing acids, alkalis and many organic solvents

High-strength polyester (PES) fibers

  • Extremely strong
  • Low elongation for a synthetic yarn
  • Available with low heat shrinkage

Polyamide (PA) fibers

  • Elastic and expandable
  • Tear and scrub resistant
  • Recyclable
  • Dimensionally stable

Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) fibers

  • Highly temperature resistant (constant temperatures up to 240 °C possible)
  • Resistant to solvents, acids and alkalis

Hybrid yarn

made from glass/polypropylene (PP) or glass/polyester (PES)

  • Can be used to make composites without the addition of resin
  • Temperature resistance and processing temperature can be controlled via the synthetic yarn

Production options

In consultation with our customers, the products can be individually enhanced with further properties through various modifications during the manufacturing process.

The following options are possible:

Weave and thread count

  • Weight
  • Tensile strength
  • Heat shrinkage behavior
  • Elongation
  • Drapability

Finishing and coating options

  • Non combustible / flame retardant
  • Hydrophobic surface
  • Hydrophilic surface
  • Non-stick coating
  • Heat sealable
  • Electrically conductive
  • Optimized adhesion to different substrates
  • Self-adhesive on one side
