Products and Properties of PPSF

Zenith Fibres Limited is one of the leading manufacturer and exporter of Polypropylene Staple FIbre (PPSF) in India. With the State-of-Art technology we manufacture Polypropylene Staple Fibre (PPSF) in denier range of 2.5 to 40 in different cut length in natural white and 4 to 40 Denier in dope dyed colours for different applications.

PPSF has wide ranging applications in view of its being a light weight fibre with high insulation properties and good resistance to abrasion. PPSF is finding new and varied uses over older and more traditional synthetic fibres. Among all synthetic fibres in the world, the share of PPSF has increased substantially and the growth trajectory continues.

Apolon is the ideal PPSF material for use in a truly wide variety of areas. Some of these include spun yarn filter fabrics, non-woven filter fabrics, geo-textiles, floor coverings and carpet backings, furnishing fabrics, blankets, wall-coverings, in construction industry.

We are also marketing 100% Polypropylene Spun Yarn by spinning our PP fibre into yarns of various English counts which is used in weaving good quality filter fabric. We also supply PP Dref-2 yarn which is used in filtration candles.
