Fiberglass (Spray UP – Chop method): 2400tex and 4000tex;
Fiberglass (Yarn – Lightly Twisted) 22 tex to 68 tex (These yarns are originally manufactured with a slight twist per meter – 28 TPM);
Aramid fiber: 167 tex to 330 tex;
Carbon fiber: 200 tex to 3400 tex (3K, 6K, 12K, 24K, 48K and 50K);
Most common twisted fiberglass yarns: 68/2-100; 100/2-70; 200/4-100; 408/3-70, etc.
Textured yarns are those that are physically modified with compressed air to acquire greater volume; the objective of this process is to increase the material’s thermal insulation capacity.
Treatment with PTFE (Teflon®):
Fiberglass, carbon and aramid yarns treated (impregnated) with PTFE (Teflon®) are great for manufacturing special gaskets and can be twisted or smooth. These yarns guarantee the optimal properties of non-toxicity, chemical resistance and anti-adherence.
Composites in general (tubes, tanks, ladders, etc.), gaskets, hoses, thermal pad sewing, special cables, electrical harnesses and traces, etc.
