    Bi-component Monofilament Yarn



    • It is composed of two polymers with different chemical and/or physical properties
    • It is extruded from the same spinneret with both polymers within the same filament.

    Cross-sections



    • Sheath/Core

    • Eccentric Sheath/Core

    • Side-by-Side

    Advantages


    Thermo-fixing for fusion bonding


    • Directly bond the mesh by thermo-fixing.
    • Available for different combinations with different bonding temperatures
    • The bonding produces a smooth and beautiful mesh and uniform distribution of adhesive.

    Special functionality


    • Combining bi-components with specific functional additives will provide a multiplied effect

    Diversity


    • Customization and different bi-component combinations of offerings

    Cost Reduction


    • Applying the expensive material to merely one of the layers, which could reduce the overall cost and highlight its effect
    • Fabric does not require secondary coating process

    Stable physical properties


    • Place materials with desired physical properties in the core layer to maintain the overall physical properties of the monofilament yarn

    Eco-friendly



    - Thermal bonded webs, meshes, fabrics allows the monofilament yarn to be self-bonded without adding chemicals. This reduces the use of chemicals, consumes less energy, and generate less pollution and carbon footprint

    - Circularity: Bi-component monofilament yarn are usually co-extruded with materials similar to the plastic family, making recycling hassle-free


    Unique product features



    - Through the use of high-performance materials/additives, we provide more diversified product features, such as fluorescence, luminous , thermochromic, deodorization, etc.

    - Put the color masterbatches or additives in the inner layer of the bi-component monofilament yarn to protect the more fragile materials from damages caused by UV radiation or temperature and help maintain color fastness and reduce color migration
