Multifilament yarns are yarns that have multiple filament fibers that can be treated to twist together. Multifilament of any kind will use a spinneret with many small holes, unlike the single-holed monofilament spinneret. The drawing out process draws all of the extruded filaments.
YUSHENG offers wide range of Multifilament Yarn that is made of polypropylene and are widely used in the manufacturing of fabrics. At normal temperature this yarn gives excellent resistance to alkali's and acids.
Multifilament yarns has a most wide usage.
For example used to manufacture Geo Textile Fabrics; used to manufacture Filter Fabrics; Used as sewing thread. Used In Woven Sacks, Webbings and Tapes, Sofa Sets, Safety Belts, Braids, Ropes, Tennis Rackets, and so on.
The properties of a yarn are not only dependent on the base material of a yarn, or its yarn count. The properties of a yarn are also determined by the production process used to turn the base polymer or natural material into the final yarn. There are three main types of yarn: monofilament yarn, multifilament yarn, and spun yarns. These are differentiated by the arrangement of the fibres in the yarn.
Spun yarns are made up of short staple fibres with lengths measured in centimetres, while filament yarns are kilometre-long. As artificial yarns are either pulled from a chemical solution or extruded from polymer chips in continuous processes, the filaments produced are too long for spinning. These filaments are broken using a variety of methods including cutting and stretching.
One of the most distinct characteristics of a spun yarn is its 'hairiness', while filament yarns do not have. In addition to this, spun yarns are softer to the touch and much less lustrous than filament yarns. Spun yarns have a lower tensile strength than their filament alternatives.
