Fibers

NYLON 6 HIGH TENACITY

Nylon 6 Fibre

Polyamides are probably the most popular polymers in the field of highly technical applications. These silky fibers are suitable to all the applications with a request for high elastic absorption, such as mooring or climbing ropes.

Polyamide 6 is not subject to significant distortions and has very interesting properties:

  • HIGH RESISTANCE TO UV-SUN LIGHT
  • EXCELLENT THERMAL RESISTANCE
  • HIGH RESISTANCE TO INSECTS, FUNGUS, ANIMALS, AS WELL AS MOLDS, MILDEW, ROT AND MANY CHEMICALS
  • HIGH AGEING RESISTANCE
  • SUCCESSFULLY RESULTS AT LOW TEMPERATURES
  • EXCELLENT RESISTANCE TO ABRASION
  • HIGH RESILIENCE
  • GREAT ELASTICITY

The abrasion resistance of this material is better in wet status, but kept in these conditions for too long, the nylon might become stiff.

Eurotexfilati’s nylon 6 yarns can be delivered in different types and colours, according to the customer’s wishes. They are also used by Eurotexfilati for the production of semi-finished products (cable and half cable, cores, jacket …) made on specific customer requests.


POLYESTER HIGH TENACITY

Polyester High Tenacity Yarn

Polyester yarn is a flexible continuous yarn. It is a synthetic fiber ideal for a wide range of applications. Many ropes covers are made of polyester, since it can be moulded into almost any shape It has an improved wrinkle resistance, a high tenacity and a high colour retention.

Moreover, it is very resistant to abrasion, it will not be affected by moisture and has particular properties:

  • STRONG
  • GREAT ABRASION RESISTANCE
  • RESISTANCE TO LIGHT, CLIMATE AND ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS
  • HIGH RESISTANCE TO STRETCHING AND SHRINKING
  • EXCELLENT RESISTANCE TO MOST MOISTURE, CHEMICALS AND MILDEW,
  • LOW COEFFICIENT OF WATER ABSORPTION
  • QUICK DRYNESS AND GOOD RESILIENCE WHEN WET OR DRY

All test methods according to BISFA

Eurotexfilati’s polyester yarns can be delivered in different types and colours, according to the customer’s wishes. Polyester yarn is available with very low shrinkage, minimum elongation, marine finish.

They are also used by Eurotexfilati for the production of semi-finished products (cable and half cable, cores, covers) made on specific customer requests.


POLYPROPYLENE HIGH TENACITY

Polypropylene High Tenacity Yarn

Polypropylene is synthetic yarn widely used in ropes, distinctive because it is light enough to float in water. It is often chosen for its resistance to corrosion and chemical leaching, also for its high tensile strength and its low weight compared to other materials. Polypropylene fiber is not very heat-resistant, as it is not treated.

It is well known for its low level of moisture absorption and its resilience against most forms of physical damage.

This fiber is very robust and has other interesting properties:

  • GOOD RESISTANCE TO MILDEW AND CHEMICALS
  • GREAT VERSATILITY
  • EXCELLENT CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
  • GOOD UV STABILITY

All test methods according to BISFA

Eurotexfilati’s polypropylene yarns can be delivered in raw white, as well as in other colours and with specific UV resistance upon request. They are also used by Eurotexfilati for the production of semi-finished products (cable and half cable, cores, covers) made on specific customer requests.
