HIGH TENACITY POLYESTER LOWIK MULTiFILAMENT YARNS

The FilamentFactory in Bad Hersfeld has a long heritage in the production of yarns with an extremely low wicking effect. In recent decades our LOWIK became the accepted standard to combat harsh outdoor conditions. These years of experience on different construction sites have pushed the development of our LOWIK.

Coatet fabrics

Resistance
Conventional coated fibres are prone to the effects of wicking when the coating on the fabric is damaged. Through these flaws, water may spread out to large areas of the carrier fabric. LOWIK counters the absorption effect and prevents water from spreading.

Endurance
LOWIK yarns are treated with a proprietary anti-wicking finish. This effect prevents mould from settling inside the fabric. The anti-wicking effect also protects the fabric from soiling by its reduced capillarity, increasing the life cycle of your products.

Stability
Apart from its low wicking characteristics, LOWIK combines a high tenacity with low shrinkage. The excellent stability of these threads help to maximize your fabrics’ dimensional stability.

As a mature fiber, currently in its 4th generation, LOWIK has truly become the benchmark for the industry using C6 fluorochemical
