Textile 480

Properties
Tough, light, non-splintering & excellent machinability. Can be machined to very smooth surface & punched under proper conditions. High impact strength & is sufficiently hard to resist edge denting in use.

Applications
Developed for use as textile bobbin, spool heads, armored shuttle & pattern.
