The polycondensation system caters to the demand for differentiated fibres and is capable of producing yarns with bright; cationic dyeable, semi and full dull features.

The system can also manufacture special polyester with flame-retardant, low-melting-point, high-shrinkage, water-soluble and anti-static properties.

Furthermore, the system is flexible to process polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polytrimethylene terephthalic (PTT). (AR)
