Filament yarn is the yarn consisting of fibers with each end being endless. In spun yarn, though the whole yarn is continuous, each staple fiber is discontinuous.
Filament yarns are made up of single filament or multi filaments from spinneret through cooling, oiling, drafting, winding and other processes, including monofilament and multifilament yarn types. Filament yarns can be for industrial use or civil use. Spun yarns are shorter fibres, spun in strips and twisted, mainly for civil use.
Filament yarns are widely used both in civilian products (such as household items) and industrial products, including Industrial fabrics (such as tyre cord fabrics, belting fabrics, geo textile fabrics, filter fabrics and special dipped fabrics), belts (such as safety belts, lifting belts, braided belts), and ropes & cords, etc.
