Properties essential to make a Fiber.

fiber Each fibre has particular properties which help us to decide which particular fibre should be used to suite a particular requirement. Certain fibre properties increase its value and desirability in its intended end-use but are not necessary properties essential to make a fibre. Thus it is very essential to know the individual aspects and specific properties of each kind of fibre.

Acrylic Fibres

fiber Acrylic fibres are polymers formed by addition polymerization of at least 85% by weight of a chemical called acrylonitrile or vinyl chanide. To polymerise vinyl cyanide the double bond between the first two carbon atoms is broken and the molecules attach themselves to each other in a linear chain.

Cotton Fibres

apparel fiber Cotton is a soft staple fibre that grown in a form known as a boll around the seeds of the cotton plant, a shrub native to tropical and subtropical regions.

Natural Plant/Bast Fibres

fiber Banana fibre, a ligno-cellulosic fibre, obtained from the pseudo-stem of banana plant (Musa sepientum), is a bast fibre with relatively good mechanical properties.

Sheep Wool

fiber Wool is the fibrous covering from sheep and is by far the most important animal fibre used in textiles. It appears to have been the earliest fibre to be spun and woven into cloth.

Sisal

fiber sisal-fibre-reinforced composites that are traditionally used for making ropes, mats, carpets, fancy articles and others

Rayon

fiber Rayon is often used in fashion and home furnishings, but the fiber is also found in sanitary products, diapers, and medical supplies.

Jute

fiber Jute is a ligno-cellulosic fibre that is partially a textile fibre and partially wood, falls into the bast fibre category

Cotton Fibers and Its Properties

fiber Cotton is a seed fiber, meaning the fiber grows from seeds. It is perhaps the most important of all fibers.

How wool is made?

fiber Wool is possibly the oldest fiber known to humans. It was one of the first fibers to be spun into yarn and woven into fabric.
