Textile yarns, industrial yarns, and fibers are used in many textile and industrial applications in which the performance and adaptation of solutions to meet specific requirements are factors critical to success.
Fibers are used in paper machines, in the production of technical “non-fabrics”, for filtering hot gases, abrasive sponges, and so on.
Industrial yarns are used to make tires and rubber mechanical products such as transmission hoses and chains, lined fabrics and technical textile materials, airbags, and so on.
Textile yarns are used for general clothing articles. Rhodia is a leader in the development of polyamide 6.6 flat and textured textile yarns, offering special yarns such as UV Protection, Biotech, Naturalle, and Allumé, and a huge family of bright and dim micro fibers.
