Multi-Component Fiber Technology
Hills has developed a highly advanced multi-component technology, which provides
many advantages to the fiber industry. Multi-Component Fibers are briefly
described as 2 or more polymers or additives combined into a single fiber.
The advantages of producing multi-component fibers include:
• High filament densities
• Unlimited potential for varying polymer distribution within the fibers
• Low cost
The multi-component fiber technology is a rapidly growing field. Hills has sold over 100 pilot and commercial machines. Several of the latest projects have been tri-component machines.
