Meeting customer needs for high-quality spinning

DOMO fiber grades, available in a wide variety of viscosities, are used in nearly all fields of spinning. Thanks to their outstanding properties, our PA grades have become indispensable to many applications. DOMAMID® and STABAMID® virgin resins provide customers with high quality solutions for spinning products like mono- and multifilaments for textiles, technical yarns and carpets.

Textile filaments for superior performance

Our resins are processed as textile mono- and multifilaments for woven, knitted, warp-knitted and technical fabrics. We offer solutions for all high-speed spinning POY and FDY applications, characterized by exceptional evenness in dyeability and brilliant colors. Their inherent stabilizer ensures excellent heat and light stability for the final yarn application.

NYLEO® Performance Fibers

Our NYLEO® brand of performance fibers offer high value-added solutions based on PA66 fibers, also known as nylon 66. We have been producing world-class PA66 fibers since 1955 for such industries as non-woven for abrasives and aeronautics, flooring for carpets, high performance textiles, flock for upholstery, automotive interiors and flooring, and many other consumer products.

NYLEO® is also ideal for flocking, for a surface that looks like velvet. The main applications are clothing and upholstery (sofas, blankets, wall fabrics), automotive (window frames, car seats, glove boxes), decoration (velvety interior of jewelry boxes, felt figurines) and toys.

Our NYLEO® product line fosters innovation in nonwoven and functional products, with flame-retardant, bacteriostatic and biodegradable fibers. The latter, using Amni Soul Eco® technology, offers biodegradability while maintaining the standard characteristics of nylon 66, such as durability, long life, high tenacity, soft touch and abrasion resistance.

Meeting customer needs for high-quality PA66 fibers

NYLEO® performance fibers are ideal for:

  • Non-woven: abrasive felts for industrial polishing/finishing, domestic sponges and scouring pads​, breather fabrics for aeronautics, felts for tennis balls and paint rolls
  • Textile: t-shirts, sweatshirts, trousers, socks, suits, denim, footwear, sportswear, active wear, combat shirts, uniforms​ and workwear
  • Flooring: carpets, rugs and wall coverings for public transportation, hotels, offices, residences
  • Flocking: sofas, bedspreads, wallcovering, jewel cases, perfume cases, lip gloss wand applicators, automotive window channels and seats, gloveboxes, clothing, shoes, bags

NYLEO® for non-woven

Among our many innovations for the non-woven world, our NYLEO® PA66 staple fibers can be used for several different non-woven processes, including thermal bonding, chemical bonding, random process, needling and wet-lay process. Our new generation of mass-dyed NYLEO® fibers provides an environmentally friendly value proposition, reducing water consumption compared to traditional bath dyeing, as the color pigments are directly injected in the melted polymer before spinning.

Carpet

NYLEO® for carpet

Our NYLEO® polyamide 66 fibers are exceptionally well adapted for use in carpet because of PA66’s superior tufting and weaving qualities. Also, thanks to its excellent appearance retention and covering power, less weight of NYLEO® fibers per square meter are needed compared to other fibers to achieve a comparable level of performance.
