Filaments

Endless applications

As your professional partner for special fibres, Trevira offers a unique combination of high quality raw materials, manufacturing expertise and development know-how.

Trevira is part of the Indorama group, one of the most important polyester manufacturers worldwide. Moreover, together with our experts at our German production sites Bobingen (Bavaria) and Guben (Brandenburg) decades of knowledge and experience can be benefited from. All this gives you, the customer, access to a unique resource.

Our highly efficient, flexible production facilities (our production site maintains 15 spinning units at Bobingen alone, for example) make it possible to tailor production in line with individual customer requirements.

Trevira is known globally for its yarns for flame retardant textiles made from inherently flame retardant polyester (Trevira CS), for its antimicrobial polyester yarns (Trevira Bioactive) and for its many other special fibres and filaments.

With state-of-the-art hardware and expertise, Trevira is the ideal choice for developing and testing new products. At our Bobingen production site, for example, we have a polymer research group, and it’s at Bobingen that we also carry out our filament spinning tests. Our in-house analytical and textile laboratories provide on-site support and follow-up for these activities. This joined-up working structure results in a hugely efficient resource for the development of new products.

At our Guben production site, specialised in filaments, our seamless quality control processes are set in motion from the moment we begin our in-house polyester production. They continue throughout the processing and finishing stages right up to final assembly and packaging, giving you a long-term competitive advantage when you work with Trevira. With the help of our own laboratories, we are able to ensure that this level of quality is permanently maintained, constantly monitoring products and processing to ensure that we always comply with our own high standards.

Special filaments for (nearly) every need

We offer an extensive range of high quality filament yarns with a variety of functions. Fields of application range from home and contract textiles, textile automotive interiors and apparel to technical applications.

When it comes to making filaments, our expertise gives you the competitive edge
