Cotton Fiber Ginning

The process of separating the seeds from the cotton fibers. Types of processes, Points to be considered for fibre during processing. It also mentions various other properties.

Type of Spun Yarn

Details of types of yarn such as spun yarn and filament yarn also different types of cotton such as Sea island cotton, Pima cotton, U.S. cotton, Asian cotton etc.

Mineral and Metallic Fibers

A number of fibers exist that are derived from natural mineral sources or are manufactured from inorganic and mineral salts. These fibers are predominantly derivatives of silica (Si02) or other metal oxides.

Vinyl Fibers

Vinyl fibers are those man-made fibers spun from polymers or copolymers of substituted vinyl monomers and include vinylon, vinyl, vinylon-vinyl matrix (Polychlal), saran, and polytetrafluoroethylene fibers.

Miscellaneous Fibers

Fibers which do not logically "fit" under other classifications such as natural, manmade, mineral etc. such novaloid, carbon, poly-phenylene dibenzimidazole polyimide fibers etc. are categorized under miscellaneous fibers.

Elastomeric Fibers

Elastomeric fibers are those fibers that possess extremely high elongations at break and that recover fully and rapidly from high elongations up to their breaking point. The fibers are all used in specialized applications where high…

Polyolefin Fibres

Polyolefin fibers are those fibers produced from polymers formed by chain-growth polymerization of olefins (alkenes) and which contain greater than 85% polymerized ethylene, propylene, or other olefin units.

Acrylic Fibers

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…
