Artificial Fibers

What Are Artificial fibers

Artificial fibers are man-made fibers which are not found in nature.

The yarn is produced by means of a spinning mass, which is pressed with uniform pressure through nozzles.
Natural polymers, such as viscose or lyocell, elastane and synthetic polymers such as, for example, polyester or polyamide, are distinguished.
For the production of natural polymers, the starting material is found in nature, the cellulose. It is chemically dissolved to the spinning mass and can then be spun out.
For the production of synthetic chemical fibers, petroleum supplies the main raw material. Here, too, the yarn is produced after the spinning mass has been produced.
