Metallic yarn production



The metallic yarn consists mainly of aluminium fibres, which are covered by polyester or other materials. Its strength is sufficient for use in warp or weft. To increase its firmness, the yarn can be additionally reinforced by other fibres (nylon or rayon). The reinforcement (twisting) is then wound into a spiral. There are two basic techniques used in the production of metallic yarn. The most common one is laminating (“sealing”) of one layer of aluminium between two layers of polyester film. These fibres are then cut longitudinally and wound on spools. The metal can be dyed and heat-sealed in a transparent film. The glue or the film can be dyed before laminating as well. There are many variations of colours and effects that can be achieved with the use of metallic yarns. Metallic fibres can also be produced by metal plating. This process involves heating the metal until it evaporates. Then it is applied to a polyester film at high pressure (1,500 - 2,000 psi). This process generates thinner, more flexible, stronger and more comfortable fibres.

Fabric with metallic yarn and care

Profession. dry cleaning w. perchlor-ethylene is preferred to laundering. The only one suggested laundering method is hand laundering with fabric conditioner and cold water. Metallic yarns must never be laundered with bleach.

Fabrics with metallic yarns should be treated like all synstehtic fabrics.

These yarns also find use in the production of ropes, cords and various decorations. Most of the rexess metallized yarns have polyamide reinforcement. Polyester and viscose are used for reinforcement as well. Our fancy yarns, i.e. the rexess metallic yarns, are processed by a number of weaving mills throughout the world for the production of ribbons and military insignia. They are also used in the production of cords, ropes, trimmings, bands, embroidery, laces and for various decorative purposes.
