Acetate

TRANSPARENCY – Yarn synthetic fabric or chemically derived from acetate cellulose; this fiber is obtained by dissolving wood cellulose in a solvent: acetone. Is produced in the form of continuous filament is used in lingerie, in bathing suits, in male and female leaders like raincoats and jackets. II acetate yarn is mixed with other fibers to obtain a shiny and silky. artificial fiber made from the esterified cellulose. Normally used in the form of continuous filament, from shiny fabrics, silky, soft, sagging. Among the disadvantages: a high specific weight, sensitivity to heat and moisture, gualcibilità and poor wear resistance. The acetate yarn is soft, bright in the structure and colors. It has discrete transpiration, hygroscopicity and antistatic (but not as a natural fiber). The main characteristics of the fabric are gloss and elasticity. Similar to silk, only in appearance, it is less light, more resistant, in contrast to the silk is charged with static electricity. It seems that for the first time it was used in 1921, since then this fiber has long remained confined in the lining industry. Now its use is very grown up: the 8.3% of the total production of continuous threads, due to a growing interest in natural fibers man-made.
