Fiber FAQs:

Q: Are fibers often used in the manufacture of other materials?

A: Yes.

Q: Are fibers starting to replace spandex technology?

A: Yes.

Q: Are fibers a subset of man-made fibers?

A: Yes, and regenerated from natural cellulose.

Q: Are fibers noted as two resin-based fibers that are not thermoplastic?

A: Yes, and most others can be melted.

Q: Are fibers often crimped to provide bulk in a woven?

A: Yes, and non woven or knitted structure.

Q: Are fibers cellulose regenerated fibers?

A: Yes.

Q: Are fibers a subset of man-made fibers?

A: Yes, and which are based on synthetic chemicals rather than arising from natural materials by a purely physical process.

Q: Is fiber used more often as a synthetic replacement for wool?

A: Yes.

Q: Are fibers often based on oxydized and via pyrolysis carbonized polymers like PAN?

A: Yes, but the end product is almost pure carbon.

Q: Are fibers used to make carbon fiber by roasting them in a low oxygen environment?

A: Yes.

Q: Are fibers round in cross-section?

A: Yes, but special designs can be hollow, oval, star-shaped or trilobal.

Q: Is fiber the cellulose regenerated fiber?

A: Yes, and rayon.

Q: Are fibers employed in the manufacture of paper and textile?

A: Yes, and dietary fiber is an important component of human nutrition.

Q: Are fibers made from raw materials with naturally long-chain polymer structure and are only modified and partially degraded by chemical processes?

A: Yes, and in contrast to completely synthetic fibers such as nylon or dacron , which the chemist synthesizes from low-molecular weight compounds by polymerization reactions.

Q: Are fibers fibers whose chemical composition?

A: Yes, and structure, and properties are significantly modified during the manufacturing process.

Q: Are fibers generally based on arrangements of cellulose?

A: Yes, and often with lignin: examples include cotton, hemp, jute, flax, ramie, sisal, bagasse, and banana.
