Saran™Fiber is a very heavy fiber (1.7 in the specific gravity). Moreover, It has little water permeability. When it is used for the fishing net, two features appear bellow.
Saran™Fiber is used well for Gillnet, because of the features that the net extends beautifully in water. Especially, as the specific gravity is heavy when using lower part of Gillnet, it seems to be able to extend more effectively in water.
When it undertakes actual use, using together with Nylon fiber,for example is recommended to say nothing of using only Saran™Fiber. It becomes excellent twist yarn for fishing net having both high specific gravity of the Saran™Fiber and high strength of nylon fiber by twisting with nylon.
