Fiber Materials and Textile Fabrics
Natural fibers are those produced by plants, animals, and geological processes and it develop or occur in the fiber shape. Semi-synthetic fibers are made from raw materials with naturally long-chain polymer structure and are only modified and partially degraded by chemical processes, in contrast to completely synthetic fibers such as polyamide or polyester. Synthetic fibers are entirely from synthetic materials such as petrochemicals.
The CNT based fibers are of interest not only as reinforcements with extremely high specific strength and modulus and in structural materials, but also due to their enhanced multi-functionality for use in paper, textiles, and other areas.
Textile fabric, a cloth that has been knitted, woven, tufted, knotted, or bonded together using natural or synthetic threads, yarns, and other materials.
