Yarns and fibers are the basic building blocks from which textiles are composed.

fibres

As such, solutions to product design challenges often begin with fiber research. The performance characteristics of the yarn have a direct relationship to the performance of the finished textile. Understanding how fibers perform according to different weaves and finishes allows Bally Ribbon Mills to design narrow fabrics with properties that include:

  • High tenacity
  • Abrasion resistance / lubricity
  • Flame and heat resistance
  • Controlled elongation
  • Chemical resistant in specific environments
  • Conductivity
  • Dimensional stability and strength
  • Reduced weight and size
  • Flexibility
  • Bio-compatibility
  • Cut resistance
  • Controlled porosity

Our engineered narrow fabrics provide a unique solution by utilizing fiber orientation and maximizing end use performance. Thus, textiles offer a superior alternative to many design materials including plastic, steel, aluminum, and alloys.

Bally Ribbon uses four major classifications of fibers, each with a specific set of properties:
  1. Man-Made Fibers
  2. Performance Fibers
  3. Specialty Fibers
  4. Natural Fibers
