Yarn contact surfaces on textile machines are required to have extreme resistance to wear and low friction characteristics (0.20 to 0.25) to prevent damage to the yarn such as “snowing”. Many of the new high technology yarns such as carbon fibre, Kevlar® and other synthetic fibres are very abrasive and extremely susceptible to filament damage. Highly corrosive substances are also used in the manufacturing process. MoniPlex® coatings have proven their ability to provide total corrosion protection in this environment with the kindest of surfaces for the yarn.
