Monofilament Extrusion Lines

Melt spinning technology for Monofilament 

FET supplies state of the art melt spinning systems for processing monofilament formats. These are well developed, proven and field tested systems which are capable of delivering high specification technical filaments. As with all FET products, the emphasis is on bespoke design to match your requirements, final product quality and energy efficiency throughout.

Polymer Types and Filament Properties

Systems are available to process a large variety of polymer types including Polyester, Polyamide, Polyolefin, Polyethylene, Biomaterials, Bi-Component and others. Many filament cross sections can be produced.  The equipment is configured according to the required filament specification, for example, high tensile, low shrinkage, high modulus versions are available.
