Fire-retardant vinyl fibres for design flooring 

It’s a continuous co-extrusion process that produces fibres in the form of yarn, coated with fire-retardant plasticised PVC. Polymer Chemie’s customer Copaco Screen weavers takes the coated yarn and weaves it tightly to make design flooring called Ntgrate. The biggest challenge was finding the proper adhesion between the fibre and a stable colour matching.
