Taking the chance of the WIRE Show in the next weeks, GOTEX will present to all their Customers the new Hotmelt yarns: These are reinforcement fibers (glass or aramid) coated with hotmelt, to obtain a higher tensile strength at break and better performance once is used as a tensile strength member for cables.

It has to be heated at soft temperature just before the cable enters the crosshead of the extruder. Then the coating on yarn bonds forming a tubular shape which surrounds the cable and ensures an excellent reinforce inside the cable and optimizes the contact with the outer jacket.

The hot-melt additive fuses fast and regularly.
