The aim of this paper was to investigate the physical and mechanical properties of fine  Polyester/Viscose-Elastic Composite Rotor-Spun Yarn. Yarn samples with different values of the draw ratio and twist factor as well as similar normal yarns all with a linear density of 20 tex were produced on a modified rotor spinning system. The results showed that in composite yarns, the breaking tenacity and elongation increased with an increase in the spandex draw ratio and decreased with an increase in the twist factor. The maximum amount of the elastic recovery ratio was obtained at a draw ratio of 3.75, while it increased with an increase in the twist factor. These yarns have a greater amount of breaking tenacity, elongation and elastic recovery ratio than normal rotor-spun yarns. Longitudinal SEM photos and also cross sectional views of the elastic composite rotor-spun yarn structure revealed that the elastic component preferentially occupied the outer layers of the yarn structure.

Abstract:

The aim of this paper was to investigate the physical and mechanical properties of fine  Polyester/Viscose-Elastic Composite Rotor-Spun Yarn. Yarn samples with different values of the draw ratio and twist factor as well as similar normal yarns all with a linear density of 20 tex were produced on a modified rotor spinning system. The results showed that in composite yarns, the breaking tenacity and elongation increased with an increase in the spandex draw ratio and decreased with an increase in the twist factor. The maximum amount of the elastic recovery ratio was obtained at a draw ratio of 3.75, while it increased with an increase in the twist factor. These yarns have a greater amount of breaking tenacity, elongation and elastic recovery ratio than normal rotor-spun yarns. Longitudinal SEM photos and also cross sectional views of the elastic composite rotor-spun yarn structure revealed that the elastic component preferentially occupied the outer layers of the yarn structure.
