We produce filament solutions for string instruments ensuring optimal audiophile performance. Many harpists and violinists rely on our grades. A tennis match has been won with filaments made using our products which provide long-lasting tension that is not affected by water uptake or creep.

Key properties:
• High and medium viscosity for fine filaments
• Low water uptake
• Transparency

For more than 30 years, we have been providing polyamide neat resins which are converted into premium tooth brushes. Many brands rely on filaments integrated into electrically driven tooth brushes with high-quality polyamide grades. A useful feature is the controlled blue tinting for the lifetime. The rounded edges are soft and so the filaments can clean and stimulate but do not injure the skin or gums.

Key properties:
• Viscosity range for thick and standard filaments
• Low water uptake
• Based on renewable raw materials

Our portfolio includes polymers for high chemical, temperature resistance and or in combination with high fatigue performance for long-term use. For harsh environments, we also offer high hydrolysis resistance to achieve maximum lifetime operation for the customer. We can produce materials suitable for creation very fine mesh filters for use in applications where food contact approval is needed.

Key properties:
• Viscosity range for thick and standard filaments
• Low water uptake
• Flexibility and heat resistance

FILAMENTS FOR TEXTILES (FABRICS AND UPHOLSTERY)
