MULTI-PURPOSE SILKLIKE FIBER
Cheng Zhenjuan (Zhejiang Silk Engineering College, Hangzhou)
A modified copolyester fiber was prepared by adding the third monomers mixedmainly with aliphatic dicarboxylic acid and aliphatic dialcohol during PET poly-condensation. The mechanism of alkali treatment and the structure, mechanism,dyeability, absorbent quality and shrinkage property of the treated fiber are alldiscussed. The results show that this kind of fiber possesses excellent boil-dyeabilityunder normal pressure and good absorbent quality and shrinkage property. Thefabrics manufactured with this fiber have good handle. So, the fiber is suitablefor manufacturing profiled fiber shrinkage silklike fiber.
