Polyester Fiber Properties - Cut Length 
Cut lengths accessible are 32, 38, 44, 51 and 64mm for cotton sort spinning and a mix of 76, 88 and 102 mm - normal cut length of 88m for worsted spinning. The most well-known cut length is 38 mm.

For mixing with other synthetic fibers, spinners favored 51mm to get higher efficiency, in light of the fact that T.M. will be as low as 2.7 to 2.8 as against 3.4 to 3.5 for 38mm fiber. On the off chance that the fiber legnth is more, the nepping inclination is additionally more , so a crompromise cutlength is 44 mm. With this cut length the T.M. will be around 2.9 to 3.0 and yarns with 35 to 40% lower imprfections can be attained to contrasted a with comparative yarn with 51 mm fiber. Later on spinners will institutionalize for 38 mm fiber when the ring spinning speed achieves 25000 rpm for manufactured yarns.

For OE spinning , 32 mm fiber is favored as it empowers littler dia rotor(of 38mm) to be utilized which can be run at 80000 to 100000 rpm.

Air jet spinning framework uses 38 mm fiber.
Polyester Fiber Properties - Tensile Properties
Polyester fibers are accessible in 4 steadiness levels.

Low pill fibers- usuall in 2.0/ 3.0 D for suiting enduse with tenacities of 3.0 to 3.5 gpd(grams every denier). These fibers are for the most part utilized on worsted framework and 1.4D for knitting

Medium Tenacity - 4.8 to 5.0 gpd
High Tenacity - 6.0 to 6.4 gpd range and
Super high determination - 7.0 gpd or more

Polyester Both medium and high determination fibers are utilized for clothing enduse. Right now most fiber makers offer just high perseverance fibers. Spinners incline toward them since their utilization empowers ring frames to run at high speeds, yet then the dyeablity of these fibers is 20 to 25% poorer, additionally have lower yield on wet handling, have inclination to shape pills and for the most part give harsher feel.

The Polyester super high constancy fibers are utilized basically for spinning 100% polyester sewing strings and other industrial yarns. The higher tenacities are gotten by utilizing higher draw proportions and higher annealer temperatures upto 225 to 230 degree C and a slight extra draw of 2% or something like that at the last zone in tempering.

Extension is contrarily corresponding to relentlessness e.g

Tirelessness -Elongation at Break -T10 ValuesLow Pill- -

3.0-3.5 -45-55% -1.0-1.5Medium -
4.8-5.0 -25-30% -3.5-4.0High -
6.0-6.4 -16-20% -5.2-5.5Super Hi -
7.0 or more -12-14% -6.0 or more -

The T10 or persistence @ 10% lengthening is vital in mix spinning and is specifically identified with mix yarn quality. While spinning 100% polyester yarns it has no hugeness. Diligence at break is the central component.

Polyester Fiber Properties - Crimp Properties 
Pleats are introducd to offer attachment to the fiber gathering and separated from creases/cm. Crease soundness is more essential rule and this quality ought to be over 80% to give inconvenience free meeting expectations. A basic check of pleat soundness is pleats/crawl in finisher drawing fragment. This quality ought to associate with 10 to 11, if bring down, the fiber will give high fly prompting lappings and higher breaks at winding. Twist complete likewise gives union, however attachment because of pleat is far better than the one got by finish.To give a solid sample, one fiber maker was having a significant issue of fly with plant colored trilobal fiber. Trilobal fiber is hard to pleat in that capacity, so it was with incredible trouble that the plant could put in creases every inch of 10 to 11. Dyeing at 130 degrees C in HTHP passing on machine decreased the cpi to 6 to 8. Plants oversprayed upto 0.8% did not help. Card stacking occurred yet fly was uncontrolled, at last the fiber maker added a steam midsection to take the two temperature to 100degrees or more before pleating and afterward could put in typical cpcm and great crease strength. At that point the colored fiber ran well with typical 0.15 to 0.18 % included twist wrap up.

Polyester Properties - Spin Finish 
A few sorts of twist completions are accessible. There are just few twist complete manufacturers - Takemoto, Matsumoto, Kao from Japan, Henkel, Schill &Scheilacher, Zimmer & Schwarz and Hoechst from Germany and George A.Goulston from USA. It is just by a factory trial that the adequacy of a twist completion can be built.

A twist completion should give high fiber to fiber grinding of 0.4 to 0.45, in order to control fiber development especially at selvedges , low fiber-metal erosion of 0.2 to 0.15 to empower bring down strains in ring spinning and give satisfactory static insurance at whatever speed the textile machine are running and give enough attachment to control fly and lapping propensities and oil to empower smoother drafting.

Twist complete as utilized regularly comprises of 2 segments - one that gives oil/ union and other that gives static insurance. Each of these segments have upto 18 distinct parts to give wanted properties in addition to hostile to organism, antibacterial against frothing and stabilizers.

Most fiber makers offer 2 levels of twist completions. Lower level completion for cotton mixes and 100% polyester transforming and the more elevated amount complete for thick mix. The reason being that gooey has a tendecy to deny polyester of its wrap up. However in a large portion of the plants even lower twist completion works better for low generation levels and if the creation level is high, abnormal state twist completion is obliged on the off chance that it is blended with thick.

For OE spinning where rotor speeds are around 55000 to 60000 rpm standard twist completion is alright, however in the event that a factory has new OE spinning machines having rotors running @80000 rpm, then an entirely unexpected twist complete which has an altogether lower fiber - fiber and fiber - metal grating gave great results. The need to clean rotors was reached out from 8 hours to 24 hours and breaks dropped to 1/3rd.

All in all it must be expressed that however the measure of twist complete on the fiber is just in the reach 0.105 to 0.160, it chooses the destiny of the fiber as the runnability of the fiber is controlled by twist complete, so it is the most critical part of the fiber

Viability of twist completion is not simple to gauge in a fiber plant. Dupont uses an instrument to quantify static conduct and measures Log R which gives a smart thought of static spread. Likewise, there is s Japanese instrument Honest Staticmeter, where a heap of very much adapted fiber is pivoted at rapid in a static field of 10000 volts. The instrument measures the energize picked by the fiber test, when the charge achieves its greatest worth, same is recorded and machine exchanged off. At that point the time needed for the charge to hole to a large portion of its most extreme quality is noted. As a rule with this instrument , for fiber to function admirably, most extreme charge ought to be around 2000 volts and half life rot time under 40 sec. On the off chance that the most extreme charge of 5000 and half life rot time of 3 min is utilized , it would be hard to card the fiber , particularly on a high generation card.

Polyester Properties - Dry Heat Shrinkage 
Ordinarily measured at 180 degree C for 30 min. Qualities range from 5 to 8 %. With DHS around 5%, completed fabric acknowledgment will be around 97% of dim fabric sustained and with DHS around 8% this quality goes down to 95%. In this manner it bodes well to hold DHS around 5%.

L and B color 
L color for most fibers record values between 88 to 92. "b" color is a measure of yellowness/blueness. b color for semidull fiber vacillates between 1 to 2.8 with diverse fiber makers. Bring down the quality, less is the chemicals debasement of the polymer. Optically lit up fibers give b color values around 3 to 3.5. This with 180 ppm of optical brightner.

Color Take Up 
Every fiber maker has cutoff points of 100 +- 3 to 100+-8. Even with 100+-3 color points of confinement streaks do happen in knitted fabrics. The main cure is to mix bunches from diverse days in a despatch and demand spinning factories taking parcels from more than one truck load.

Combined Fibers 
The right approach to gauge is to card 10 kgs of fiber. Gather all the flat strips(95% of combined fibers get gathered in flat strips). Spread it out on a dim extravagant, get melded and undrawn fibers and measure them. The upper satisfactory farthest point is 30mgm/10kgs. As far as possible ought to be around 15mgm/10kgs. DUpont calls combined/undrawn fibers as DDD or Deep Dyeing Defect.

Polyester Lusture Polyester fibers are accessible in
Splendid : 0.05 to 0.10 % TiO2
Semil dull : 0.2 to 0.3 % TiO2
Dull : 0.5 % TiO2

Additional dull : 0.7% TiO2 and in optically lit up with regularly 180 ppm of OB, OB is accessible in ruddy , greenish and somewhat blue shades. Semi dull is the most well known lusture took after by OB (100 % in USA) and brilliant.
