Multifilament fibers tend to flatten or spread during braiding, which interferes with the reflow process.
Moreover, a number of these previous studies have reported some contradictory results: Branstetter and Musick (1993) conducted 71 longline sets (using 50 branchlines with nylon leaders and 100 branchlines with wire leaders) and reported higher catch rates of sharks on nylon leaders in inshore waters, but found the opposite in offshore waters; Berkeley and Campos (1988), on the basis of 13 longline sets (about 25% using wire leaders), reported lower catches of sharks on wire leaders than on nylon, but the difference was not statistically significant; Stone and Dixon (2001) completed 10 sets with alternately spaced monofilament and tarred multifilament nylon leaders and reported lower catches for the tarred multifilament nylon leaders; Afonso et al.
The team at Suzumori Endo Robotics Laboratory has been covering an artificial human skeleton with multifilament artificial muscles to simulate movement.
Conventional filter cloths are made of a fabric of multifilament yarn, which consists of several filaments twisted together to form a continuous plastic wire.

Through this process, monofilament, multifilament and fine denier fibers are manufactured to customers' precise specifications from a range of biocompatible, non-resorbable or bioresorbable polymers with tailored physical properties.
This multilayer structure, says the company, makes them significantly cheaper than the currently used multifilament tapes which require a silver matrix.
Its ability to disperse thoroughly and uniformly throughout the polymer reportedly makes it suitable for mono- and multifilament extrusion.
Abstract: The invention concerns a yam comprising a core (A) obtained by coextrusion of a glass multifilament E, R, C or S, or more generally of glass silk or basalt, and a polymer sheath of the thermoplastic, thermoset, natural elastomer fluorinated or non-fluorinated synthetic elastomer type.
