Thermoplastic Elastomer Monofilament Yarn
July 8, 2020

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
