PTT is a proven process for carpet, textiles, and engineering plastics. Zimmer’s PTT technology is a proprietary process developed in the late 1990’s in our pilot facilities to satisfy market demand for textile properties.

PTT has new characteristics, including producing a fiber that is stain and static resistant and excellent performance. 

Our reactors for the PTT process are proven and ensure a plant longevity with low maintenance.
