Dynel

Many people ask for Dynel fabric for filter bags

"Dynel" is a a trade marked fiber made by Union Carbide that was used in making fire-resistant, insect-resistant, easily dyed fabric used in textiles.  This fabric has not been produced in many years.

"Dynel Cloth" is a woven fabric similar to fiberglass.  It is used as a laminate fabric, usually in museum quality restorations of wooden boats and in general for abrasion resistant patches on boats and paddles.

We at Baker Bags have a wide range of fabrics available.  If you are looking for Dynel filter bags please contact us and we will advise a suitable substitute fabric for Dynel in your particular application.
