Polyester raw materials for the production of Fibers or Multifilaments
Synthetic fibers can be made of polyester and they are used for the manufacture of many products, such as clothing, home furnishings, industrial yarns, ropes, non-woven fabric, and geo textiles. The advantages of polyester are its high strength, low creep, excellent durability, and low moisture absorption. This makes it perfect for applications which require high stain, dirt, and water resistance in combination with excellent wear and tear properties. In recent decades, most of the standard textile and fiber production moved from Europe to Asia. The remaining industry in Europe focuses on special applications, meaning an increasing demand for specialties and, where possible, combined with cost efficiency.
Textiles and filaments present excellent opportunities for the use of recycled content, but they can also be recycled themselves. Together with the recycling know-how of our sister company Cumapol and the compounding expertise of DuFor, we produce raw materials for fiber production, which are based on 100% post-consumer and/or post-industrial polyesters. This saves valuable petrol-based raw materials, reduces energy consumption, and eliminates solid waste sent to landfills or incineration facilities.
