Textile Process – Weaving, Slashing, Warping

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

The process in brief: In weaving cloth, the warp is the set of lengthwise yarns that are held in tension on a frame or loom. The yarn that is inserted over-and-under the warp threads is called the weft, woof, or filler. Each individual warp thread in a fabric is called a warp end or end. Warp means “that which is thrown across” (OldEnglish wearp, from weorpan, to throw, […]

Twisting is the process which applies turns to one or multiple strands of yarns. Turns can be in S-Direction and they can be in Z-direction. Depending on the intended following production process, the amount of turns/ inch or turns / m can vary. For better visibility, following is an example of a twisted cotton strand: […]

Manufacturing Glass Fibers

The glass fiber process Textile-grade glass fibers are made from silica (SiO2) sand, which melts at 1720°C/3128°F. SiO2 is also the basic element in quartz, a naturally occurring rock. Quartz, however, is crystalline (rigid, highly ordered atomic structure) and is 99 percent or more SiO2. If SiO2 is heated above 1200°C/2192°F then cooled ambiently, it crystallizes and […]

History Glass Fibers

History Fiberglass is the original fiber reinforcement of modern composites. Though the ancient Phoenicians, Egyptians and Greeks knew how to melt glass and stretch it into thin fibers, it wasn’t until the 1930s that the process evolved into commercial-scale manufacturing of continuous fibers, which would later be used as structural reinforcements. Patent applications filed between […]
