Polyester Synthetic Fibres

Fibres and Flocks

Short cut polyester fibres and flocks are widely used in a variety of industrial applications. Polyester fibres and fabrics can provide specific advantages such as acid and alkali resistance and excellent durability.

Precision Cut, Polyester Synthetic Fibres

Precision Cut Polyester Synthetic Fibres

Precision Cut, Polyester Synthetic FibresPrecision or short cut fibres in a range of decitex sizes and cut lengths are used for reinforcement in a wide variety of industrial applications. These include the manufacture of adhesives, castings, composites, filters, lead acid battery plates, paints, paper, sealants and refractories. Fibres are available in a range of synthetic and natural materials depending on the end use.

The 1.7 dtex short cut fibre is the preferred option when the end use requires a finer diameter filament e.g. pharmaceutical and food packaging, however, all polyester grades can be used in harsher environments such as lead acid batteries due to the resistance to sulphuric acid.

The 2.1 dtex short cut polyester fibre is the preferred option when the end use requires a finer diameter filament e.g. pharmaceutical and food packaging, however, all polyester grades can be used in harsher environments such as lead acid batteries.

Precision cut Polyester fibre is a very strong and stable manmade fibre that is widely used in many industries. Polyester is resistant to stretching and shrinking and perhaps more importantly for industrial applications it is resistant to abrasion and acid degradation. Polyester has a relatively high specific gravity, leading to it dispersing well in water and a relatively high melting point making it a good all round choice for a variety of applications. The short cut 3.3 decitex grade is widely used in the manufacture of lead oxide paste with cut lengths 1.6mm and 3mm being most common.

Milled (flock), Polyester Synthetic Fibres

Milled (flock) Polyester Synthetic Fibres

Milled (flock), Polyester Synthetic FibresMilled fibres also known as random length or ground flocks are routinely used to improve the properties of a wide range of industrial products. The addition of a controlled amount of these flocks can achieve a number of benefits. For example, milled fibres can reinforce and add strength to a product while drying, curing or vulcanising, as well as preventing the formation of micro cracks, which ultimately reduce the integrity of a product. Milled fibre products also contribute towards the strength, toughness and abrasion resistance of the finished product.
