Textile Fibers & Yarns
TENCEL® is the functional fiber from nature. It is of botanic origin, since it is extracted from the raw material wood. Fiber production itself is extremely eco-friendly, due to the closed loop system. On the day that TENCEL® was invented, a new chapter was written in the history of fibers.”
It is naturally soft on the skin and exceptionally ecological. Lenzing Modal is made from cellulose and is thus inherently natural. Edelweiss stands for the gentle treatment of the environment that is possible because Lenzing Modal® is produced in an integrative manufacturing process.
Viscose was the first man made fiber introduced in textile production. Viscose has excellent properties that can be engineered and optimized for different textile and nonwoven applications.The spinning solution may be forced through a larger orifice or slit to produce a monofilament, a ribbon, or a sheet.
Only Lenzing FR® is produced using the Lenzing Modal® process. This ensures that the very highest fiber tenacities are obtained and makes it possible to insert the FR agent in a permanent manner. Lenzing FR® keeps the body dry and cool. Heat stress and heat stroke can be avoided.
Polyesters are made by polymerisation of Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) and Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG). The tow is subjected to further processes like drawing, crimping, spin finish application and then cut into fixed lengths to get cut fibres almost equal in length to cotton fibres.These cut fibres are known as PSF.
Acrylic fibers are produced from acrylonitrile, a petrochemical. The acrylonitrile is usually combined with small amounts of other chemicals to improve the ability of the resulting fiber to absorb dyes. Some acrylic fibers are dry spun and others are wet spun.
Spandex is a high elasticity synthetic fibre, which is available in both “Clear Series” and “Semi Dull” lustre. It meets different needs of users of Warp Knitting, Circular Knitting, Weaving and Hosiery.
PTA has been used mainly as a raw material of Polyester Fiber but latterly it has been exploited for various uses such as non-fiber field like PET-bottles.
Acrylonitrile (ACN) is usually used for producing Acrylic Fibers, ABS/SAN synthetic resin, acrylamide, synthetic rubber and latex.
