Monofilaments

Fitco Yarns

Here we talk about both PP and PE monofilaments, which Fitco extrudes both. Today the company is one of the leading suppliers of polyethylene and polypropylene monofilaments in Europe.

Benefits

Both PP and PE monofilaments display an extremely low water absorption and excellent thermal and electrical insulating properties. They also resist very well chemical agents, insects and mildew.

Difference between PP & PE

Polypropylene monofilaments are less elastic and more abrasive than polyethylene, but reveal a higher melting point and a lower specific gravity. Both materials are lighter than water.
