Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, we offer an extensive program of converting procedures as well as specialized finishing and heat setting processes. These range from simple plying and twisting to complex cable cord constructions. We also can employ a variety of coatings and finishes. Please call us for detailed information.
The material selection makes the difference. The filtec group possess access to an international range of materials. In addition to aramid, carbon fibers, polyethylene, HPPE, polyamide, polyester and polypropylene, we also twist materials such as stainless steel or glass.
We process yarn counts between 100 and 100,000 den.
Converted yarn is delivered either on conical or cylindrical tubes according to the individual customer’s needs. You as the customer may specify for each application the weight or meter length per yarn package.
That special performance is not always visible to the eye.
All fibers processed and finished by the filtec group are used throughout the world in a variety of different applications. Examples are filter fabric, conveyer belt fabrics, construction textiles, geotextiles, narrow fabrics, hoses, lifting equipment rubber components, sewing thread and in medical engineering. New applications for high tenacity yarns are being developed every day.
Creativity – the link between flat yarn and twisted thread
The filtec group works for and with our customers to find special solutions to our customers’ problems. For example, when a customer wanted a particular yarn construction, the normal procedure of heat treatment on the bobbin was not sufficient to stabilize the yarn. The internal tension (liveliness) in the twisted thread needed to be reduced. Our technicians developed a continuous heat setting which resulted in uniform stabilization and consistent elongation over the entire length of each yarn package.
