The idea of all our online shade cards is to give you a first idea about the standard shades. With this tool you may choose the nearest color tongue as an initial color tongue sample. The color may be slightly different from PC to PC because of the monitor settings (color warmth, color depth, lightness and contrast).
Polypropylene fiber is a product of polymerization of propylene and ethylene gases. The polymerization must be carried out under controlled conditions by special catalysts to produce qualities suitable for polypropylene fibers.
Polyolefin fibers are characterized by their resistance to moisture and chemicals. It is a preferred fiber in general textile applications because of its ability to give bulk and cover, and the use of polypropylene fibers has progressed rapidly since its introduction.
They resist dyeing, so colored olefin fibers are produced by adding dye directly to the polymer prior to or during melt spinning.
The properties of Polyolefin fibers can be tailored by additives, variations in the polymer, and by use of different process conditions.
General Polyolefin fiber characteristics:
