Performance Fibers Selects Fortron® PPS As Base Material For Multifilament Yarns
The new yarns were codeveloped over a period of two years by Performance Fibers and Ticona, a business unit of Dallas-based global specialty materials and technology provider Celanese Corp. and which maintains production, compounding and research facilities in Florence, Ky., as well as in Germany, Brazil and China.
Fortron PPS offers the following attributes for high-performance technical fibers: high-temperature and chemical resistance; inherent flame resistance; water resistance; and dimensional stability.
Performance Fibers is manufacturing the PPS multifilament yarns at its facility in Bad Hersfeld, Germany, and is distributing the yarns to customers worldwide.
