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. Examples of these applications are industrial wovens, ropes, fishing lines, tennis strings, and 3D printing-filaments.
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.
