Foodgrade and flexiblity without compromise. viscotec's decontamination technology exceeds highest food grade standards like ESFA and FDA.
A total of 400 employees in Switzerland, Poland, Romania, and Italy produce monofilaments for various technical applications, such as screen printing, filtration, meshwork, conveyor belts, paper machine screens, as well as specialties. The multifilaments are used in aviation, the medical industry, and for technical sophisticated applications.
The products are predominately made out of PET or Polyamides. New applications require monofilaments with new, unique physical, chemical, and thermal properties. Therefore, Monosuisse combines its technological knowledge about spinning of special polymers, e.g. PVDF, PPS, PEN, and POM with its long lasting experience gained from the productions of fine and finest monofilaments.
To be able to produce yarns with these finest diameters in the required quality, the used raw materials have to meet an appropriate and permanent quality standard.
This is achieved amongst other with the viscoSTAR solid state condensation plant from Starlinger viscotec, in which the purchased Polyester pellets are postcondensed to the required viscosity.
