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.
- Adhesion: The outer layer of the sheath-core monofilament is made of a low melting-point polymer while the core is made of a high melting-point polymer. The fabric can be fused after the thermo-fixing process, resulting in a mesh with better physical properties compared with fusible yarn. Melting the outer layer of the sheath-core monofilament makes the material resistant to water and wind while maintaining breathability.
- Features: Additives can be applied to the outer layer of the sheath-core monofilament to make it abrasion-resistant, flame-retardant, weather-resistant, antibacterial, antiviral, odorless, etc. Other materials can also be leveraged to achieve the desired monofilament yarn properties while optimizing costs.
- Protection: Monofilament yarns dyed with fragile additives such as fluorescent or luminous masterbatches can be strengthened by having the outer layer of the sheath-core monofilament act as a barrier that improves color fastness against washing, friction, and more.
Cross section of monofilament
- Dual Color: Mixing the color of Side A and Side B, creating a bichrome effect.
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.
- Combining bi-components with specific functional additives will provide a multiplied effect
- Customization and different bi-component combinations of offerings
- 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
- 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
