Application Areas

Duralene polypropylene yarn is strong, colourfast, and inherently resistant to stains and soils, abrasion, mildew, perspiration, and inclement weather. These qualities make it an ideal fibre for home upholstery, automotive, contract furniture, carpets, apparel and industrial applications. Polypropylene applications for apparel include denim jeans, activewear, undergarments and socks, and industrial products such as ropes, webbings, filter fabrics, and geotextiles.

The all-round properties of polypropylene fibre and the ability to ‘tailor’ its properties to meet particular end-use requirements makes it ideally suited for many applications.
