Custom Fiber Extrusion Technology

Custom Fiber Extrusion Technology
Secant Group offers the most innovative and advanced fiber extrusion technology to the medical, and performance materials markets. Through our custom fiber development capabilities, we can produce fibers and yarns using state-of-the-art melt spinning, wet spinning, and dry-jet wet spinning systems. These methods are capable of producing fibers and yarns from many different polymers including but not limited to:
  • Polyester (PET)
  • Polypropylene (PP)
  • Polyurethane (PU)
  • Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF)
  • Alginate
  • Polyglycolide (PGA)
 
Secant Group can also produce fibers and yarns using mixtures of two or more different polymers resulting in bicomponent or tricomponent fibers. Various custom architectures including non-round and cross-sectional can be manufactured. This versatility allows us to rapidly turn around fiber prototypes for our client’s custom textile components. This helps to streamline the development process and allows clients to quickly assess feasibility, leading to shorter development times.
 
Custom Fiber Extrusion Technology

Biomedical Fibers:

Medical fibers and yarns are the critical building blocks of biotextiles used for implantable medical devices, such as surgical fabrics, sutures, stents, and grafts. We can produce macro and microfilaments fibers from resorbable and nonrecordable materials to create devices for long or short-term use. All fiber production is done in cleanroom manufacturing suites in our ISO 134850 certified facility.

Performance Materials Fibers:

Secant Group has the capability to produce low denier fibers. By combining this with our custom formulation technologies we can produce revolutionary fibers suitable for the most challenging environments such as highly corrosive environments. By using these unique fibers we are able create ultra-thin support fabrics that allow for new reinforced membranes being utilized in the next generation of re-flow batteries, fuel cells and other technical applications.
