Melt extruded filaments in a variety of diameters, typically from about 0.10mm up to 2mm. Monofilaments can be further oriented to increase tensile strength and modulus, or to enhance flexibility.
Melt extruded multifilaments from 2 to 88 ends and between 1.5 and 30 denier per filament. Multifilament fibers are oriented in-line and supplied on spools or cones for downstream processing.
Melt extruded single filament fibers with small diameters, typically between 30 and 150 µm. Microfilaments can be further oriented to increase tensile strength and modulus and are supplied on a variety of spools or cones for further processing.
Melt extruded films range in width and thickness for a variety of applications. Typical thickness is between 0.05 and 0.5 mm and can be supplied on a roll with or without a backing material.
Melt extruded profiles and round tubing are prepared in a variety of sizes and shapes for additional processing. Parts can be annealed to increase crystallinity and part stiffness.
Filament materials can be compounded to incorporate inorganic content, such as barium sulfate or tantalum for radiopacity, or to include other bioactive materials.
