 Are you looking for a product (yarn or fiber) which is difficult to find such as PET FDY and DTY 40D/27F (dtex 44 f 27) or some fine high tenacity polyester multifilament or monofilament yarns please let us know. We love to serve you well.

Swicofil is in a position to provide also monofilaments in new materials. In all these specialities there is never stocks and no samples. Production only on special demand of customers. Minimum order 400 - 500 kgs

PBT - polybutylene terephthalate - density 1.32

Compared to polyester this polymer has better properties of abrasion resistance, loft and dimensional stability. It has a very low moisture absorption (0,15% at 20C 65% R.H.), a good resistance to chemical and outdoor exposure agents and good electrical properties. The UL-94 V0 version is commonly used for braided hoses in electric cabling and automotive industries.


POM - polyoximethylene - density 1.41

Due to its very good resistance to fuels and chemicals this type of monofilaments is mostly used in the production of filter fabrics for automotive use. Other features of this resin are high stiffness, high mechanical strength even at very low temperature, low water absorption and good dimensional stability at high temperatures


PA 12 - polyamide 12 - density 1.01

Its lower specific weight - compared to PA 6 and 6.6 - combined with its good chemical and abrasion resistance make this monofilament the best choice for several application in wet filtration. Due to its comparable properties it is the only alternative to PA 11 (Rilsan B)


PVDF - polyvinilidene fluoride - density 1.78

Main properties of this polymer are:

  • Chemically inert to most acids and solvents
  • Excellent mechanical properties over wide range of temperatures
  • Good abrasion resistance and low coefficient of friction
  • High continuous use temperature 150C
  • Excellent UV and gamma ray resistance
  • Excellent fire resistance (UL94 V0)
  • Due to its higher performance and cost this monofilament is used just on very special applications.


PPS - polyphenylene sulphide - density 1.35

  • Continuous service temperature up to 240C
  • Inherently flame retardant (UL94 V0)
  • Very good chemical and oxidation resistance
  • Very low water absorption
  • Good hydrolysis resistance
  • Good UV resistance
