Cordage Applications

GPI has been an originator of coating systems for hard to coat fibers, such as Dyneema, Nomex and Kevlar. When fiber technology made the jump from Dacron to the amazing new “stronger than steel” materials, the challenge was to find a coating that would adhere and last under stringent destructive testing.

GPI met the challenge and has a number of systems that meet and exceed industry requirements. One notable example is in the archery and bow building industry where steel cables have been replaced with modern fibers now coated with systems provided by GPI. These cable/string combinations take enormous abuse every time an arrow is launched, but still look beautiful after years of use. We provide a dizzying array of colors, metallics, fluorescent and luminescent coatings for this industry.

GPI can provide this innovation and technology to your challenging production environment.
