Optimized polyamide for fishing lines and nets

The following Ultramid® grades are used for the production of stretched monofilaments such as industrial wires, fishing lines, tennis racket strings, lawn mover monofilaments and bristles.

  • Ultramid® B27 E, a low-viscosity polyamide 6, is suitable, either singly or blended with other Ultramid grades, for the production of monofilaments with diameters of up to 0.7 mm. Applications include fishing lines, monofilaments for  fishing nets, bristles and fine monofilaments for industrial fabrics.
  • Ultramid® B33 L, a medium-viscosity polyamide 6, is the general-purpose grade for the production of fine and medium gauge monofilaments for the fisheries sector and for industrial applications such as filters, paper screening fabric and bristles.
  • Ultramid® B33 SL, a medium-viscosity polyamide 6 with a reduced crystallinity for better flexibility and slightly elevated stretchability compared to a standard PA 6 with the same viscosity.
  • Ultramid® B33 LXM is a medium viscosity polyamide 6 containing monomer, with a high wax content for flexible, glossy and relatively transparent monofilaments.
  • Ultramid® B36 SL is particularly suitable for the production of stretched monofilaments with medium and thicker diameters of up to 5 mm and of bristles.
  • Ultramid® B40 SL, a high-viscosity polyamide with a reduced crystallinity, makes medium and thick monofilaments more flexible and more stretchable.
  • Ultramid® C33 01 and C40 LX 07 are suitable for the production of high-grade sport fishing lines, hook monofilaments, long lines of up to 2.0 mm and tennis racket strings. High transparency and flexibility with good stretchability are characteristics of these copolyamides. 
  • Ultramid® C40 L : The high-viscosity copolyamide provides improved mechanical (tenacity, knot strength) and optical (transparency) performance.
  • Ultramid® C40 LX and C37 LXC: The high-viscosity copolyamides with extra lubricant are the premium solutions form outstanding gloss and transparency.
