New CeramTec Introduces Standard S Friction Disc With Super Surface

PLOCHINGEN, Germany — February 3, 2016 — For decades, CeramTec Standard friction discs have set the benchmark in the texturing of polyamide, with millions currently in use. Through further development of the surface quality, CeramTec has created a new surface structure that ensures excellent yarn values for polyamide.

By using the new CeramTec Standard S friction disc with Super Surface in the production of PA6.6, Dtex 78/68 it was possible to improve elongation by more than 6% and strength by more than 5 cN/tex compared to conventional friction discs. The tests were conducted on Barmag eFK machines at various yarn manufacturers with the setup 1/6/1.

The Super Surface structure is produced with a roughness of Ra 0.85 ± 0.15 µm using an innovative production method with a special surface treatment. CeramTec Standard S is also available in finer roughness on request.

The textile ceramic experts at CeramTec have brought yet another innovation to market and are setting new standards in the texturing of polyamide threads with the CeramTec Standard S friction disc with Super Surface. Its presentation at the world’s most important textile fair ITMA generated high interest.
