  • Purchasing both dyed and undyed yarns and commissioning the knitting mills to knit the yarns into fabric according to the requirements of the specific product .
  • Commissioning the finishers to finish the fabrics by using the process of washing, dyeing, bleaching and applying certain chemical finishes to the fabrics.

Chemical Conversion

  • Purified cellulose is chemically converted into a soluble compound in rayon production. A solution of this compound is passed through the spinneret to form soft filaments which are then converted or regenerated into almost pure cellulose. Rayon is termed as regenerated cellulose fiber due to the reconversion of soluble compound to cellulose.

  • Various types of rayon fibers are nowadays used in commercial purposes and they are termed according to the process of conversion of cellulose into soluble form and consecutive regeneration. Rayon fibers are wet spun and it means that filaments developing from the spinneret pass directly into chemical bathing for solidification or regeneration.
