Grilon® products include fusible bonding fibers made from copolyamides or copolyesters, bicomponent fibers and abrasion resistant polyamide fibers e.g. for the paper machine industry.
PA6 fibers with high abrasion resistance are used for paper machine clothing. These form the core business of the product range Grilon® fibers. These PA6 fibers are characterized not only by their high mechanical strength, but also through excellent chemical and thermal resistance. Grilon® adhesive fibers made from copolyamides are also used in paper machine felts. In this way, the felts are given greater strength with significantly reduced fiber loss. Grilon® hotmelt adhesive fibers are available as full profile or bi-component fibers.
The fine count Grilon® fibers with 1.0 – 1.7 dtex are particularly suited for the manufacture of light and soft thermobonded interlinings. The coarser counts, 3.3 – 6.7 dtex, are used for voluminous nonwovens and cotton yarns. Grilon® P 300 is our standard fiber with very good thermobonding properties. It provides a soft end product with low shrinkage. Grilon® M 371 is a siliconized fiber with an excellent soft touch and very good processing and thermobonding properties.
