Excellent wetting performance. Applied to protecting fabrics, felts and
other industrial and consumer textiles.
Fluoropolymer impregnated non-woven fabrics like fleece or felt materials are frequently used in filtration systems in various industries. Impregnation creates non-stick / sliding properties and enhances chemical or temperature resistance.
One reason to impregnate woven fabrics with fluoropolymers is to create a cloth which is very easy to clean and has good non-stick properties - ideal for use as filter bags, for example.
Impregnating glass yarn prior to weaving ensures an evenly distributed fluoropolymer impregnation of the finished glass cloth, surrounding and protecting the yarn itself rather than just the fabric surface. This makes it ideal for use as filtration bags in industrial applications with chemically aggressive surroundings or in high temperatures.
High resistance to impact and abrasion damage makes woven aramid yarn perfect for aggressive industrial environments.
Heightened chemical and temperature resistance as well as enhanced sliding properties - which can be achieved by impregnating the aramid yarn with fluoropolymers prior to weaving - are valyable properties in conveyor belts or other belting applications.
