Monofilament Yarns with SageZander
Monofilament is a single filament of synthetic fibre. Monofilament is made by melting and mixing of various polymers. The polymer mixture is then forced out through holes which create lines of various thickness.
Monofilament fibre is strong enough to be useful without being twisted with other filaments into a yarn. Therefore, monofilament does not facilitate the weaving braiding of the tightest and most efficient of all woven fabrics in the textile industry.
“Serving our customers with their needs at the heart of our operations.”
What is Monofilament Yarn?
Monofilament yarns may be regarded as the simplest form of yarn that is used in forming fabrics. Monofilament yarns are mostly used for making fabrics for special purposes, such as polymer or polypropylene monofilament fabrics for filtration and metal wire fabrics for architectural decoration.
Monofilament yarn consists of a single solid filament. Monofilament yarns are typically circular and solid in their cross sections. The filament’s shape can often be altered to produce non circular and hollow filaments.
Monofilaments are often limited in apparel applications due to their low bulk and high bending rigidity. Hollow monofilaments are used in softer sewing thread applications whereas elastomeric monofilaments find applications in pressure garments.
How we supply Monofilament Yarn
Monofilament yarn can be supplied on a cone or on a double flanged DIN spools. Usually the DIN spools are used for the heavier industrial grades on monofilament yarns whereas the lighter grades used in traditional textiles are more likely to be supplied on cones. We often supply our monofilaments to the braiding industry they will normally wind the yarn onto braider bobbins which they then fix into position on the braiding machines.
Monofilament yarns have many uses is areas as varied as filtration, knitted spacer fabrics, braided hoses, carpet backings and fishing lines. Nylon monofilament yarns suit items such as tennis racquet strings and strimmer’s whereas polyester is used in spacer braided hoses. There are also many uses for polypropylene and polyethylene monofilament yarns, especially in agriculture.
