Filtec Precise Inc., a pioneer in the roundsling core yarn supply industry, is proud to announce their newest innovation EPP – Engineered Polyester Power. EPP is a core yarn designed specifically for high capacity polyester roundslings.
Appropriate for size 7 (blue) and above this core yarn can offer much faster fabrication times and sling efficiency gains thru higher breaking strength and/or less total denier use. Verified through extensive trials at a number of shops across the country the EPP core yarns can increase sling efficiency as much as 15% in very large (45+ ton vertical capacity) slings. EPP offers this performance advantage thru a scientifically designed proprietary finish.
“We developed EPP based on feedback from shops all around the world; this proprietary finish is one of many revolutionary advancements by Filtec.” said Jim Bailey, President. One of the first innovations from Filtec Precise was EHP – Engineered Hybrid Power that set the stage for greater market availability of High Performance Hybrid Roundslings.
