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.

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

Acrylic the Artificial Wool Fibers

fiber Acrylic can be thought of as artificial wool. It is made from the unlikely combination of coal, air, water, oil and limestone.

Rayon—The Multi-Faceted Fiber

fiber Of all the fibers, rayon is probably the most perplexing to consumers. It can be found in cotton-like end uses, as well as sumptuous velvets and taffetas. It may function successfully in absorbent hygiene and incontinence pads and equally well providing strength in tire cords.
