Fibers eLearning Module

Description

Untitled

The Textile Fibers module presents basic information and terminology related to fiber identification, classification, production, and properties. It introduces the concept of polymerization and explains how the chemical composition and physical structure of a fiber influence its physical, chemical, and comfort properties. You will learn the generic names for fiber classification as defined by the Federal Trade Commission and be able to differentiate between natural and synthetic fibers. Physical, chemical, and thermal properties of many of the natural and synthetic fibers in use today are reported and described, as well as typical production procedures for synthetic fibers. The module will also enable you to be able to relate fiber properties to the resulting fabric properties in the end-use product.
