Polypropylene is made out of oil, and Exxon Chemicals has plenty of that. So, years ago, they set up a factory to produce the world's best polypropylene twine, located in America's heartland, in Kingman KS.
Since then, the factory has changed ownership several times, but one thing has not changed - the twine's quality.
Tyger twine, or "Exxon" twine, the name many people still call it by, is made to unsurpassed specifications.
The twist is just right.
The polypropylene is top quality virgin.
The tensile strength is consistent throughout.
The footage is accurate.
In the past few years, imports of polypropylene twine have flooded the market, fueled by their lower price point. To many of the distributors selling the product, a box of twine's most important feature is ... its cost.
But to the people that actually use the stuff, it's the twine itself that counts!
More and more people, frustrated by the bait and switch, are searching for the twine that they have trusted for years.
As a result, sales of Tyger twine are rebounding with vigor.
Tyger twine has even found a place in America's artistic expression. Click on:
