The biconstituent fiber consists of a continuous matrix of one polymer in which a different fiber-forming polymer is dispersed as a second distinct discontinuous phase.
The two polymers in the biconstituent fiber are mixed at normal temperatures before the polymers enter the extruder.
First, a biconstituent fiber is far finer than a bicomponent fiber.
Second, the irregular fineness of microfiber in biconstituent fiber make it more similar than natural leather.

Bico fibers used in China include bicomponent and biconstituent fibers, which are often mistaken for each other.
The biconstituent fibers have many islands but no determinate area in cross-section and discontinue distributing in the fiber direction.
