Working in close co-operation with Game and Sport anglers, in 1994, MONOFIL-TECHNIK developed an extremely thin and strong line, specially adapted to the requirements of fishing with spinners – the PLATIL Technik. In 1995, the world’s first monofilament triple-stretching machine was assembled at MONOFIL-TECHNIK. This production method enables further increases in line strengths, which, from early 1996 onwards, came to benefit all PLATIL fishing line products.
A further innovation to be launched in the 1996 season was the "invisible” PLATIL Ghost developed on the basis of PVDF. With this line, not only can the angler benefit from the light refraction, which is nearly identical to that of the water itself but also from a 78% increase in line weight (sinks fast and optimised line trajectory due to improved kinetic energy) and an extremely high resistance to ultra-violet rays (approx. 20 year life-span).
Thanks to excellent business results in 1998/1999, MONOFIL-TECHNIK decided to set up an additional production facility with a surface area of 4,000 square metres in order to account for the increasing demand of high-quality monofilaments.
The company continues to expand thanks to the purchase of new additional monofilament belts equipped with state-of-the-art extrusion technology and the resulting increase in production capacities. A second triple stretching machine was also installed, and, today, MONOFIL-TECHNIK has become one of the world’s leading suppliers of monofilaments.
