Polyester Fibres and Flocks

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

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.

Polyester flocks are used in the reinforcement of rubber formulations and provide improved initial modulus, compressive strength, bending stiffness and tear resistance.

Acrylic Fibres & Flocks

Fibres & Flocks

Almost all Polyacrylonitrile resins are copolymers made from mixtures of monomers with Acrylonitrile as the main component (+85%). Polyacrylonitrile or PAN fibres are well known for their intumescent properties and as the chemical precursor of high-quality carbon fibre.

Precision Cut, Acrylic Synthetic Fibres

Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) is a synthetic resin prepared by the polymerisation of acrylonitrile. A member of the important family of acrylic resins, it is a hard, rigid thermoplastic material that is resistant to most solvents and chemicals, slow to burn, and of low permeability to gases. PAN fibre is therefore used in many different applications where these attributes are specified.

Polyacrylonitrile fibres are used as reinforcement in a variety of applications including paints, roof and floor water proof coatings, adhesives and sealants. These short cut fibres are ideal for crack bridging and covering uneven surfaces.

Milled (flock), Acrylic Synthetic Fibres

Acrylic fibre flock is used in fire resistant paints for safety reasons and improved coverage. Under high temperatures the fibre expands into a foam like material without burning, this expanded foam bridges gaps and cracks that resist the spread of fire and also helps to prevent smoke transfer. Addition of fibre depends on gap to be covered and burn time requirement e.g. 5% for 30 minutes and 10% for 60 minutes depending on the other materials in close proximity i.e. untreated wooden doors will be breached faster than sealed frames etc

Acrylic fibre flock is a polyacrylonitrile fibre used as an alternative to asbestos for the manufacture of brake pads and clutch plates. The fire resistant properties of the material also make it an ideal choice in intumescent applications such as paints and sealants.

Composite Fibres & Flocks

Fibres & Flocks

Composites are made up of individual materials such as fibres to provide a combined reinforcement solution for weight, strength or cost reduction. The different fibres impart their special mechanical and physical properties to enhance matrix properties and produce material properties unavailable from the individual constituent materials. An example of where fibre composites have proven to be successful is in the manufacture of brake pads where a more expensive fibre has been partially replaced by a less expensive material without a significant reduction in performance.
