EPC specialists combine a high level of detailed knowledge with their own research and development activities to develop proprietary processes and technologies.

Our experts' detailed knowledge also helps those customers who would like to implement their own ideas – for example in existing plants – to meet the future demands of changing markets.

Intelligent solutions for the widest range of polymer modifications and spun-dyed products.

Both wet spinning and melt spinning processes are used to produce the fibres from a range of different polymers. The experts in the EPC Group are experienced in the design and operation of such plants for both processes.

The EPC Group mainly uses wet spinning processes for spinning PAN, viscose (cellulose carbamate) and Lyocell. The portfolio of the EPC Group for melt-spun polymers includes the polymers: PET, PA6, PA6.6 and PP. Support can also be provided for a number of special products, such as PTT, PEN and PLA.

These fibres are used in the textile industry, in technical applications, such as airbags, parachutes, vehicle tyres, advertising banners, truck tarpaulins, etc., as well as for special applications, such as composite materials in the carbon fibre industry. The yarns are produced either as continuous-filaments or in cut form as staple fibres, which are cut to lengths appropriate for the particular applications.

The engineers in the EPC Group offer their customers a wide range of support. This ranges from consulting services to optimise or revamp a plant, or to make it capable of producing other products. This may simply involve designing the layout of polymer pipes with EPC's own Polymer pipe program or entail taking overall responsibility for production complexes: from the polymerisation to the further processing stages, such as fabrics and dipped tyre cord.

Our experts can take synergies from other areas of our product portfolio, such as compounding PC for the automotive industry, to offer our customers solutions for the widest range of polymer modifications and spun-dyed products by retrofitting existing plants. We can also provide our customers with expert assistance for the implementation of their own ideas and technologies. For example bringing pilot plants up to production scale.
