What is Polypropylene Staple Fiber ?

How is Virgin Polypropylene Staple Fiber (PPSF) made?

Polypropylene fiber is manufactured from isotactic polypropylene chips by melt spinning proces to form filaments. These filaments/fibers are then solidified by air/water quenching and after application of spin finish are collected in cans. The fiber is stretched several times in a chemical hot bath, relaxed and crimped to be made suitable for various spinning systems.

Polypropylene staple fiber is used to manufacture Air Filter, Water filter and other industrial fabric, It is also used for woven carpets, non woven carpets, upholstery, carpet backing etc.

Polypropylene staple fibers offers superior feature due to its lowest specific gravity resulting into better relative coverage, high dimensional stability, excellent recovery properties namely elasticity and resiliency, low thermal conductivity, lowest static charge and its inertness to chemicals.

The denier range of PP Fiber is 1.5D to 70Denier.

Application of Virgin Polypropylene Staple Fiber (PPSF) for GeoTextile

Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which, when used in association with soil, have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect, or drain. Typically made from polypropylene or polyester, geotextile fabrics come in three basic forms: woven (resembling mail bag sacking), needle punched (resembling felt), or heat bonded (resembling ironed felt).

Higher Breaking Tenacity and higher Breaking Elongation are the pre-requisites for a Good Quality Geotextile.

UV Stabilised Virgin Polypropylene Staple Fiber (PPSF)

The UV stabilisation is done by using high quality HALS based UV Stabiliser in desirable proportions to meet Indian as well as global standards.

Applications of Virgin Polypropylene Staple Fiber (PPSF)

Spinning Yarns, Filer Fabrics, GeoTextile, Auto-mobiles floor carpet, thermal bonded fabrics, insulations, carpet, filter fabrics, felts and non woven carpet, building construction, RCC

Polypropylene staple fiber (PPSF) is also available in short cut length for RCC building construction and making cement sheets, tiles and hume pipes. This enhances strength of the cement/RCC.

Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) is Portland Cement concrete reinforced with thousands of small fibers more or less randomly distributed during mixing and thus improve concrete properties in all directions.

Polypropylene fibers of 0.5% to 1% are normally used in concrete. Natural white polypropylene fibers of 3 and 6 Deniers and in lengths of 6, 12 and 20mm respectively are commonly used in various applications.
