High Performance Twist
High Performance Twist (HPT) has quickly become known as a “critical differentiator.” 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 unusable.
We have vast twisting experience across various fibers.
At Atkins & Pearce we have experience twisting: Aramids, Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), Ethylene Chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE), Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP), Perfluoroalkoxy (PFA), Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS), Nylon, Polyester, Fiberglass, and many more.
HPT: Our Differentiator
Many high performance fibers can be difficult to process. Our HPT has been designed to impart twist into these fibers to enhance the performance and processability. Utilizing this technology, we have been able to impart twist on fine denier product – most notably with UHMWPE (Dyneema®, Spectra®, and Quest).
