With one of the world’s most diverse set of fibers under one roof, Atkins & Pearce has likely worked with the fiber you need. In recent years we have had a particular focus on high performance fibers, including Kevlar®, Nomex®, Technora®, Twaron®, Dyneema®, Spectra®, Teflon®, and more. With a huge range of braiders, twisters, and other proprietary conversion platforms, we can develop your unique solution for any number of applications.
With over 13,000 braiders and 150 years of experience in braiding, we use our expertise to engineer solutions for customers in a wide array of industries. Our unique access to a wide range of fibers and braider sizes enables us to develop around your criteria without limitations other braiders face. This allows Atkins & Pearce to deliver products that don’t just work but provide the best possible outcome.
High Performance Twist
High Performance Twist (HPT) has quickly become known as a “critical differentiator” throughout Atkins & Pearce’s processing. We developed this proprietary platform to overcome the bundle integrity issues and post processing performance and aesthetic degradation that can occur with many fibers. In recent years we have made further enhancements to this process to allow us to process materials as small as 10 denier enabling fibers that were once thought to be unusable.
We create and apply coatings to strengthen materials, create water repellency, or deliver resistance to various elements, like UV light, chemicals, or abrasion. Atkins & Pearce also works with coatings that provide thermal and dielectric protection for the electrical, motor and transformer markets. Traditional methods don’t always work, so we develop coatings and processes to give you the optimal performance you’re looking for.
Atkins & Pearce has developed a proprietary winding technology that allows us to build braider packages with various tapers, tensioning, and sizes. Specializing in materials with elongation challenges or processes allows us to wind products without inducing catenary. We can also provide material on cones, larger tubes, reels, king spools, and many other packaging styles.
Break new ground with product innovation.
Many of our customers come to us with the same challenge: they need to turn their neat idea into a functional product. With our deep manufacturing know-how and ability to modify fibers for best performance, we can deliver a tailored solution that’s right for you.
