Durable Monofilament

November 30, -0001

Shakespeare Company, Columbia, SC, has introduced IsoTuff, a highly durable monofilament produced using a patented process that alters the surface properties of semi-crystalline polymers. The benefits of this structural enhancement includes increased toughness, improved weather and fatigue resistance and reduced suseptability to fracture. These improvements reportedly translate into extended life for woven process fabrics.      IsoTuff technology involves the use of specialized equipment and processes to control and optimize the structure of semi-crystalline materials.
