What are bicomponent fibers used for?
In this regard, what is a bicomponent fiber why are bicomponent fibers produced?
effect can be produced from bicomponent fibres. These are fibres spun from two different types of polymer, which are extruded through holes set side-by-side in such a way that the two filaments join as they coagulate. When the filament is drawn, the two polymers extend to different degrees, producing a…
Subsequently, question is, what is Biconstituent fiber? n′stich·?·w?nt ′fī·b?r] (textiles) A manufactured fiber composed of two or more dissimilar fibers combined before the extrusion process. Also known as matrix fiber.
Also question is, what is Biconstituent fiber used for?
The biconstituent fiber and binder fiber of the present invention is useful in the production of nonwoven fabrics which are made of continuous filaments or staple fibers. The resulting nonwoven fabric has a high tensile strength and is excellent in terms of both softness and hand.
What is a bicomponent yarn?
Bicomponent fibre, bicomponent yarn: a fibre or yarn which has two different types of continuous filament components. The two components may, for example, be different polymers which shrink differently. (See also multicompartment fibres and yarns and multicomponent fibres and yarns.)
