Rafia - Multiflament

The first step involves extrusion, where a mix of pure ingredients ; polypropylene granules, UV Master Batch, calcium carbonate, and sometimes colour pigment is melted and shaped into tapes in an Extrusion plant. During this process, the tensile durability of the tapes is checked.

The yarns are furnaced at 160-165 degrees and passed through hot oil cylinders (to gain resistance) before passing through the cooling cylinders and reaching the quality control stage. After width, resistance, denier controls are carried out, the approved yarns are reeled.

The yarns are reeled on bobbins which are stored and later loaded onto looms for weaving.Depending on the requirements of a customer, the weaved fabric may be laminated with a semi-clear PP film that is bonded to the woven material to create a moisture barrier.


PP fabrics with different qualifications are produced with proper raffia tapes extruded with relevant resistance and specification. Raffia tape yarns used in weaving are extruded with maximum strength and flexibility.




PP multiflament yarn extrusion is used in the production of soft textured materials and in the production of additives for concrete reinforcement.

The yarn structure is consists of two or more filament yarns twisted together. In our own production the PP multifilament yarns used in loop weaving as weft look softer.
