Sample 4 was determined to be a bicomponent fiber with sheath-core construction.
Toray will also produce the bicomponent fiber, co-spun with polyester, in Japan, and manufacture homofiber textile products in Japan and elsewhere in Asia, as well as bicomponent fiber textile products in Japan, for sales worldwide.
This process used a bicomponent fiber weld mechanism to join the elements.
Most fabrics will use a sheath/core bicomponent fiber. These bicomponent fibers include polyethylene/polyester or polyethylene/ polypropylene and other blends, all of which, carefully selected and balanced, allow us to engineer a wide variety of nonwovens to meet your specifications.
This article is the first to describe a process of manufacturing engineered wood composites that combine two nonwoven textile technologies: bicomponent fiber and needle punching.
The bicomponent fiber is extruded through the orifice in the spinneret.
The difference in viscosity between two individual polymers for producing a bicomponent fiber can cause serious migration and deform the interface [16, 17].
The machine can also offer multifilament bicomponent fiber spinning with metering/distribution plates to produce the following internal fiber cross sections--sheath/core, side-by-side, tipped trilobal, 16 segmented pie, 36 islands in the sea and blocking plate assemblies for reducing spin holes.
The sheath/core bicomponent fiber helps to meet various requirements of nonwovens.
FiberVisions Corporation, a subsidiary of Indorama Ventures, will further expand its bicomponent fiber capacity in Covington, GA.
