What is Multifilament Yarn?

Polypropylene fibres are used in an extensive range of products, and here at IFG Drake, West Yorkshire, we produce polypropylene staple fibre and polypropylene multifilament yarn. Both are used in the production of a varied range of products, with multifilament yarn most commonly being found in the furnishings industry.

Multifilament yarn is a versatile material which can be constructed in round or delta cross-sections, intermingled for direct weaving and knitting, or flat, for texturising and twisting, making it a multipurpose product. Alongside typical qualities of polypropylene fibres such as toughness and having low specific gravity, multifilament yarn is stain resistant, durable and, if required, can be made fire retardant.

Our multifilament yarn is ideal for air jet and traditional weaving, as well as knitting applications, which means that it has a varied customer base. It is commonly found in the home and commercial furnishings industry, being used in final applications such as mattress ticking, upholstery, webbings, and window blinds.

We have the ability to produce multifilament yarn to satisfy any suitable market and can include a speciality UV stabilisation package to suit customer requirements. Get in touch now to discuss your needs.
