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.
Dental floss is a prime example of an application of fluoropolymer impregnated PTFE yarn, due to its excellent sliding properties. It can also be found in woven fabrics or other textiles which are used in architectural or even clothing applications, where durability, dirt repellence and flexibility are important.
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.
