HIGH TENACITY
UV STABILIZED MULTIFILAMENT YARNS

With our UV product range the FilamentFactory introduces a new product line with permanently UV-stabilized polyester high-strength multifilament yarns. The outstanding UV properties are achieved by addition of a tailored masterbatch during the extrusion process. The additive is physically-mechanically bonded to the polymer and is therefore inherent.

Protection
Very high level of UV-protection with permanent UV-stabilisation.

Strength
Having performed multiple exposure tests according to PV1303 / DIN 75202 / ISO 105-B06 results clearly show that the new UV PET multifilament yarns, after the same exposure time, have 120% more residual strength than the standard polyester high- strength multifilament yarn without the UV stabilizer. The weathering simulation tests according to DIN/EN ISO 4892 make the differences even clearer: 60% higher residual strength compared to non UV-stabilized PET yarn.

Flexibility

The properties of the new functional high-performance multifilaments are clearly superior to the current UV-stabilized filament yarns. Strengths of 60 cN/tex at an elongation at break of 20.0% and free shrinkage values (180°C; 15min) of 1.3% can be achieved, making it possible to manufacture textiles with special properties. In addition, individual customer demands can be tailor-made.

Significantly lower strength loss than conventional UV-stabilized polyester yarns

Inherent protection
UV Performance does not degrade over time
