Synthetic fibers are made from synthesized polymers of small molecules. The compounds that are used to make these fibers come from raw materials such as petroleum-based chemicals or petrochemicals. These materials are polymerized into a chemical that bonds two adjacent carbon atoms. Differing chemical compounds are used to produce different types of synthetic fibers.
Synthetic fibers account for about half of all fiber usage, with applications in every field of fiber and textile technology. Although many classes of fibers based on synthetic polymers have been evaluated as potentially valuable commercial products, four of them - nylon, polyester, acrylic and polyolefin - dominate the market. These four account for approximately 98 percent by volume of synthetic fiber production, with polyester alone accounting for around 60 percent.
Synthetic fibers are more durable than most natural fibers and will readily pick-up different dyes. In addition, many synthetic fibers offer consumer-friendly functions such as stretching, waterproofing and stain resistance. Sunlight, moisture, and oils from human skin cause all fibers to break down and wear away. Natural fibers tend to be much more sensitive than synthetic blends. This is mainly because natural products are biodegradable. Natural fibers are susceptible to larval insect infestation; synthetic fibers are not a good food source for fabric-damaging insects.
Compared to natural fibers, many synthetic fibers are more water-resistant and stain-resistant. Some are even specially enhanced to withstand damage from water or stains.
A single fiber is a widely applied material not only for clothing but also for industrial use. It is made into a nonwoven fabric through compression, and it is used for various industrial materials such as automobile, building, furniture, sanitary material, agriculture, etc., and it is gradually expanding its application range. In addition, it is used for filling clothes, bedclothes, furniture and so on. And it is twisted with cotton to make yarn and it is used for spinning.
Polypropylene staple fiber is used in the manufacture of needle carpets, sanitary and household articles, etc. Some of the main applications include: nonwoven fabrics, absorbent product markets (diapers), home furnishings and automotive industry. It is also used for woven carpets, non woven carpets, upholstery, spinning yarns, filer fabrics, thermal bonded fabrics, insulations, felts, building constructions…
Acrylic fiber is composed of acrylonitrile and a comonomer. The comonomer is added to improve dyeability and the textile processability of the acrylic fiber. Acrylic fiber is produced with two different systems: wet spinning and dry spinning. Acrylic fiber can be supplied as producer-dyed either by pigmentation of the dope or with jel dyeing systems. It can be used alone, or in blends with other natural and synthetic fibers. End uses of Acrylic Fiber: sweaters, socks, fleece wear, circular knit apparel, sportswear, carpet, blankets, upholstery, car tops, boat covers, filtration materials, reinforcement materials in construction, car batteries etc...
Recycled polyester, also known as rPET, is obtained by melting down existing plastic and re-spinning it into new polyester fiber. While much attention is given to rPET made from plastic bottles and containers thrown away by consumers, in reality polyethylene terephthalate can be recycled from both post-industrial and post-consumer input materials. But, just to give an example, five soda bottles yield enough fiber for one extra large T-shirt.
