Raw materials for the production of Monofilaments
Because of its high mechanical properties and good processability, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is widely used as a raw material for monofilament extrusion. A few examples of these applications include industrial wovens, ropes, fishing lines, tennis strings, and 3D printing-filaments.
Recycled polyesters for monofilament extrusion
Monofilament applications present excellent opportunities for the use of recycled materials. DuFor offers a range of recycled polyesters which can be used to produce monofilaments. The use of recycled materials is increasingly more important because it reduces the need for fossil based raw materials. We can develop high-quality polyester raw material with a low ecological footprint.
