Plasma Metal Coated Yarn


Additional to the stock service, Plasma Metal Coated yarn can also be tailored upon your requirements.

Not only concerning the count (from a fine dtex 8 mono- or multifilament up to a coarse dtex 550 high tenacity multifilament) but also in reference to what materials can be coated.

There are no restrictions in terms of what metal can be coated with plasma metal coating:

With plasma metal coating, all metals can be used for yarn coating.

Furthermore, the process is also flexible regarding the substrate. The following substrate materials have been used for this process:

  • Polyester (PET)
  • Polyamide 6.6
  • Polyamide 6
  • Viscose (CV)
  • Silk
  • Meta-/ Paraaramide
  • Vectran

Also, friction textured HE or Set yarn can be coated which provides a "geometric" elasticity to the product.
Everything is possible as long as the yarn is a continuous filament yarn with a count of between dtex 8 - dtex 550.

Base material: continuous filament yarn (mono and multifilament)
Count range: dtex 8 - dtex 550
Twist: no restriction
Lowest possible conductivity: depending on applied metal
