- Accelerate Your Prototyping
Zeus extrusions include much more than our highly recognized tubings. We also offer multiple drawn fiber products to meet a variety of other application needs. Whether braiding for wire harnesses or woven for a filter, our drawn fiber products excel in the most demanding environments and are made to the highest standards.
With our half-century of experience, Zeus has developed the expertise and technology to manufacture precision drawn fibers from multiple resins. You will find our performance fibers in a broad range of applications where chemical resistance, lubricity, high tensile strength, and optical clarity are paramount. Our drawn fiber exhibits excellent temperature resistance and stands up to abrasion minimizing the effects of wear. We offer FEP, PFA, PEEK, PVDF (Kynar®), ECTFE (Halar®), and ETFE (Tefzel®) as drawn fiber with other resins possible upon request.
Our drawn fiber can be woven into ribbons (also referred to as garniture or suction tape in the tobacco industry) to form conveyor belts for the pulp paper and food processing industries. Drawn fiber is also commonly utilized to form an expandable and flexible braided sleeve to protect wires and cables from abrasion and chaffing. As a woven mesh, drawn fiber works as a filter or mist eliminator in volatile environments taking advantage of its excellent chemical and moisture resistance.
Customization is key
Looking for a custom size or tolerance? At Zeus, we specialize in customization with short lead times. While our standard product sizes range from 0.002″ (0.051 mm) to 0.040″ (1.016 mm), other sizes are possible by request. We also offer rectangular profiles as small as 0.001″ (0.025 mm) × 0.003″ (0.076 mm) and engineered surfaces to provide customized shapes that enhance the lubricity of our drawn fiber products.
Colors are often used for application specifics or branding purposes. All of our and drawn fiber resins are available with pigments to add color, and we can match most Pantone shades.*
Whether your application demands a custom extrusion, a specialty profile, an engineered surface, or one of our standard size performance drawn fiber products, the Zeus team is ready to assist.
