50 years of textile recycling

Peacock Fibres have been processing Kevlar and other industrial fibres for over 40 years. We provide solutions by developing innovative applications for waste streams. Our processes include sorting, scouring, precision cutting, chopping, blending, opening and carding.

From body armour to brake pads

The bulk of our aramid fibre output provides raw material for automotive friction products such as clutch facings and brake pads. Other uses include thermal insulation and the manufacture of needlefelt for heat and flame retardant protective clothing. We are Environment Agency registered for recycling and remanufacture.

We buy material for reprocessing from the following waste streams:

We process scrap in the form of woven clips, yarn on bobbins, tangled filament, selvedges, braid and stitched panels. We are looking to buy the following materials - Kevlar, Twaron, Technora, PPS, Preox, Zylon PBO, PBI and P84.

We process armour panels and have secure recycling solutions for demilitarisation and destruction of ballistic vests. We supply Certificates of Destruction and Duty of Care waste certificates.

We sell redundant yarn and Kevlar fabrics.
