Description

A texturized synthetic fiber that is formed by spinning two different polymers into a single thread. Bicomponent fibers are made usually by extruding the two components side-by-side. As the combined filament is drawn, the two polymers respond differently to the stress resulting in a permanetly crimped, but stretchable, fiber.

Synonyms and Related Terms

bicomponent fibre; composite fiber; bicomponent yarn
