3D-mats are unique strong three-dimensional open structured polymeric mats, made of monofilaments fused together where they intersect. They are used in industrial applications, as well as in roofing, building and civil engineering works.
Our construction fibres take two main forms both of which comply to BS EN 14889-2:2006. Micro fibres with diameters between 17 and 50 microns and lengths between 3 and 24mm.. Macro fibres with diameters between 0,75 and 0,95mm with lengths typically between 45 and 55mm. They are used to add durability and ductility and reduce cracking in concrete in a variety of applications.
Using so-called « bi-component » yarns based on a higher melting polymer constituting a stiff core filament surrounded by a lower-melting skin polymer, a unique high performance “non-woven” can be made.
Synthetic polymer extruded foils as well as laminates are slit into tapes which are subsequently woven to form screens and groundcovers in a range of agrotextile applications, or geotextiles for civil engineering purposes.
