what IS Viscose Fabric?

The raw material of viscose yarn is beechwood. Viscose fabric is the general name of fabrics knitted from these yarns. Cellulose-based regenerated fibers are the most important and have the most.

Beechwood naturally is grown in Europe, Asia, America, Japan, and Turkey. It consists of cellulose just like cotton. There are almost no suspicious letters in the structure of cellulose whose viscose production becomes fluid. After hardening as a filament, it remains as cellulose. With these properties, the structure of viscose is highly similar to cotton. Viscose’s moisture absorption property is higher than in cotton. Normally collects 11-14% moisture, swelling high, can absorb water up to 80-120%.

Dry strength is lower than in cotton. Age resistance is at a very low rate. When wet, its durability decreases by 40-70% compared to dry and its elongation is twice as high as cotton, with 15-30%. Viscose is very suitable for dyeing and printing due to its higher moisture absorption than cotton. It also makes the colors appear brighter.

It is used to give a shine effect in fabrics that are desired to be shiny, crepe fabrics, and knits. Inlining fabrics, blouses, shirts, T-shirts, dresses, decorations, and women’s interior offers are preferred. Viscose fiber is used by mixing it with other fiber types such as cotton, linen, and wool.

Physical Structure and Properties of Viscose Rayon:

There are lines between fibers. The cross-section is indented, it is generally in filament form. Viscose fiber is obtained by cutting to length according to the place of use. Yarn with a thickness of 50-900 denier can be produced. Monofilament fineness is 1-1.5 denier. It is shiny when produced. It is produced if it is not specially matted, it is transparent. Its dry strength is good in viscose rayon and excellent in modal. The strength of the viscose rayon is around 2-3 g / denier. When it is wet, there is a 30-50% decrease in strength. Viscose fibers; they are 10-11% in dry state and 25-35% in wet state. Viscous rayon has low modal, good resilience development.

The handle properties of the modal are similar to that of high-quality cotton. It is more hydrophilic than natural cellulosic fibers with a moisture uptake of 10-16%. Since they absorb more water, they dry more slowly. Their slow drying is also due to their rapid absorption of moisture. They lose strength by being affected by sunlight. Over 150 ° C, they lose strength, the ironing temperature is around 135 ° C, and they burn easily and quickly. There are not too many static electricity problems. There are no pilling problems due to its use mostly in filament form. With a density of 1.50 g / cm³, it has a lower density than cotton and higher than polyester. It does not have thermoplastic properties. Viscose rayon is a good conductor.

Is Viscose Fabric Healthy?

Of course, it is because, as we mentioned, its raw material is a beechwood tree, as a natural fiber. Viscose fabrics are elegant and comfortable. A soft touch (touch) of the product is obtained from the delicate and smooth spinning feature of the fiber. It is slippery and compatible with skin. Therefore, it is comfortable and easy to wear. Since the dehumidification is very high, it absorbs the sweat from the body and does not get sick. You can have it wear for you and your children.

What is Open-End (OE.) Viscose?

Viscose yarn, which can be produced in Open-End Yarn facilities, is produced in Open-End spinning machines by passing through the machines they make as comb and CER after the fibers are cleaned. Typically 1.2 mm long fiber is used. It is harder than other qualities, but cannot be called poor quality like cotton yarn. Because Open-End Viscose yarn is the most preferred yarn type.

What is Ring Viscose?

Ring Yarn: Carded yarns are better quality and soft than Open-End yarns. It is produced from 1.5 mm long fibers in Ring Spinning machines different from Open-End yarn. Ring yarn generally has a hairy structure, but enzyme and silicone processes are not applied as in cotton yarn. Instead, the Gauze process is performed and it ensures that the feathers are destroyed by burning. Another way to prevent pilling is by manufacturing Siro Ring yarn. Information on how to combine 2 ring ropes in Siro ring yarn to make it more lint.

What is ProViscose?

It is a yarn obtained by mixing viscose and Lyocell fibers, which Lenzing obtained as a result of intense research and introduced with the ProViscose brand name. In this way, Lyocell adds superior strength to the handle properties of viscose. It has a 100% natural structure that does not prevent the body from breathing in and out.

Main Properties of Viscose

  • First of all, its raw material is wood, that is, it is a natural fabric like cotton.
  • High dehumidification capacity. It does not smell, absorbs perspiration.
  • Slightly bright, has a rich appearance
  • Soft
  • Slippery and compatible with skin
  • It is a durable fabric.
  • It is wrinkle-resistant and easy to wash, dries easily, does not stretch or shrink unless washed at very high temperatures.

Viscose Melanges

Viscose melange yarns are produced by blending colored viscose fibers according to the desired mélange degree in the blow room stage of yarn production. Different proportions of melange can be obtained in every color.

Viscose Blends

Viscose blended yarns are made by blending Viscose fiber with fibers suitable for other blends in Textile in order to achieve better results in terms of touch, strength, pilling. Mixtures can be made according to the optimum mixture ratios determined as a result of R&D studies and according to customer requests.
