Abstract: The publication represents a review of three major types of filter-fabrics which are actively applied by domestic industrial enterprises. It's specially noted that contemporary high-technological manufacturing is impossible without highquality materials. The domestic technologies on filter-fabric production deserve attention unconditionally. Nevertheless, together with modernization of domestic industrial production, the technologies on filter-fabric accumulation have to change also. Namely that's why the functioning of such enterprises, which lean on competitive ability principles, product quality and its high technology, is utterly important now. In this regard, it represents an interest the activity of research-production enterprise Filter-Fabrics (RPE Filter-Fabrics Ltd) where from 2013, there has been started the manufacturing of innovational products which basis on, polyamide mini-thread and filament (complex) thread from high-test polyamide with glass filler which is stable to abrasion and having lower shrinkage during exploitation in the liquid medium. Besides, RPE Filter-Fabrics Ltd has significantly expanded filter-fabric market by the way of correction of thread basis and weft that has allowed to introduce the production on many concentrating factories.

Keywords: filter fabric, polyamide filter fabric, technical fabrics, filtering materials, filtering, filtration, dewatering, light industry, mineral processing, mining and chemical raw materials, mono thread, filament thread, high-strength filament
