The Making of a classic
How it’s made...
...(resin) is gravity
fed into the barrel...
Raw thermoplastic material in the form of small beads (resin) is gravity fed into the barrel of an extruder.
...material is spun forward
by a rotating screw...
The material is then spun by a rotating extrusion screw which forces the plastic beads forward at the optimum melt temperature into the die.
...strands are forced out
with a blast of hot air...
The resin strands are forced out thru the die to the accompaniment of a constant blast of hot air which enables the formation of microfibers.
...the loft is adjusted to
increase air space...
The loft is adjusted to increase the air space within the woven fibers for more holding capacity, increased softness, and more cloth-like drape abilities.
...the finished product has
a smooth, tight finish...
The finished product has a smooth, tight finish with good tensile strength.
