Safer Cables, Safer Living

SILON compounds make better cables

Silon was founded as a polyamide filament yarn producer in 1950. At present SILON designs, produces and sells polyolefin-based performance compounds and polyester fibers for applications in construction, the automotive industry, for hygienic and medical applications and for general processing as well. SILON offers industrial park services in Plana nad Luznici through its subsidiary company.

Silon has successfully offered high-grade PE-Xb on the pipe and cable market under the brand name TABOREX since 1994. SILON’s future offer in the cable industry will be strongly supported by its strategic investment in high-end Buss technology (Installation of a new high-tech production line in June 2018).
