Synthetic and natural fibers, applications and uses

Fibers is the plural of the word “fiber” and refers to threads whose ratio of length to diameter is more than 100 times. Fibers are divided into two categories: natural and synthetic. The most widely used synthetic fibers are polyester fibers, which you can learn more about here

Acrylic Fiber : Advantage, Disadvantages

Acrylic Fiber Is Made By Spinning Acrylonitrile Copolymers Over 85% Of Acrylonitrile Monomers. These Fibers Are In Tough Competition With Nylon, Polyester And Polyolefin. Acrylics Have Many Desirable Properties Of Wool And Do Not Have The Disadvantages Of Wool. Therefore, The Usage Of Acrylic Fiber Is Increasing Day By Day.

Polyvinyl Alcohol Fiber (PVA)

Polyvinyl Alcohol Fiber Is One Of The Best Types Of Fibers For Reinforcing Concrete Due To Tensile Strength And High Modulus Of Elasticity And Non-Environmental Pollution.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or vinion fibers(Vinyon)

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is a very widely used plastic and one of the most valuable products of the petrochemical industry (polymer fibers). Polyvinyl chloride is most widely used in construction and its fibers have the same characteristics. Vinion is defined as a fiber, at least 85% of which are vinyl chloride polymerization monomer units.
