Viscose Filament Yarn Market: Overview
Viscose is a fiber derived from cellulose-dissolving pulp. The raw materials used for its manufacture are diverse such as wood, cotton, and bamboo. Viscose filament yarn (VFY) is a natural yarn made from wood pulp, bamboo pulp, or cotton pulp. It is a natural product. Viscose filament yarn is also known as rayon yarn or rayon filament yarn. Viscose filament yarn is woven by using high-quality raw material and with the help of cutting-edge technology. Viscose filament yarn comes in different colors and shades as per the specifications of customers.
The process of production of viscose filament yarn involves reaction of cellulose with caustic soda. During the ripening process, depolymerisation occurs, carbon disulphide is added. This forms an orange-colored crumb known as cellulose xanthate, which is further dissolved in more caustic soda to obtain a viscous, orange-colored solution. This solution is pumped through a spinneret, which has hundreds of holes, into a dilute sulphuric acid bath, where cellulose is regenerated as fine filaments when xanthate decomposes.
Viscose Filament Yarn Market: Key Segments
In terms of deniers, the viscose filament yarn market has been segmented into 120D, 150D, 300D, and 600D. This wide range of viscose filament yarn has several weaving and embroidery applications. The luster of viscose filament yarn (VFY) can be bright or full dull. It can be dyed in various colors and packed on cones. SVILOSA, a manufacture of the viscose filament yarn, produces raw white bright, optical white, dope-dyed, and dull viscose filament yarn. The viscose filament yarn produced has qualities that make it difficult to distinguish from natural fibers. This makes viscose filament yarn a preferred choice for several manufacturers, which use it alone or in combination with other fibers. Rayon is highly absorbent, soft, comfortable, and with good drapability. Excellent characteristics of viscose filament yarn make its use preferable in a wide range of applications in the weaving & knitwear industry.
