PFE Extrusion (Pty) Ltd is a member of the PFE International Inc Group of Companies. Underlying the company is more than 30 years of experience in the extrusion of polypropylene staple fibre and bulk continuous filament yarn. Coupled with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 quality and environmental standards and a customer driven mindset, PFE is a true global leader.

This combination of expertise and experience has led to a revolutionary technique, enabling us to offer you standard or unique fibre types between 2.2 and 140 decitex – with variations in characteristics such as cut length, tenacity, elongation, crimp, colour and UV stabilisation – to meet the technical specifications of our customers.
These fibre types open up a wide variety of application possibilities. PFE fibre is the fibre of the future.

The recent commissioning of a state-of-the-art BCF yarn production line has strengthened our position as a leading manufacturer and supplier to the international carpeting industry. We are now in a position to offer you polypropylene BCF yarn in both mono and tri-colour options – from 1600 to 2500 decitex – with variations to meet your particular technical specifications.

At our production plant in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, up to 20 000 tonnes of staple fibre, and 4 000 tonnes of BCF yarn can be produced annually, according to international quality standards.

The R&D facility at PFE is a critical component to the success of the company. The cutting edge laboratory equipment for testing fibre and yarn properties – both on and off line – is paramount. On a pilot plant, new polymer types and master batches are tested, new fibres innovated, and trial batches produced for research. Self-developed technology for colour adjustment and the production of bespoke samples, in both fibre and yarn, is available.

Customer driven, customer focused, quality beyond excellence. Our philosophy is to create lasting partnerships for our customers’ success.
