Heat setting of textile fibre - Theoretical approach

Research output: Publication in policy / professional / specialist journalArticle (for policy / professional audience)Academic researchpeer-review


Polymeric fibres are oriented semi-crystalline structures in which the macromolecules are rarely in their equilibrium state during the manufacturing process. Further instabilities are imparted when fibres are converted to yarns, and yarns to fabrics. Heat setting is an important industrial process, since it rids them of their instabilities. This study addresses the aspects that are relevant to the broad area of heat setting.
