- ... Nine multifilament yarns and 18 staple yarns were tested on a modified Walker Abrader using the same low tension for all yarns. To correct all filament yarns to the same fineness (100 den.), multiple strands of filament viscose 100/40 were tested, and a correction factor was obtained. In the same manner, multiple strands of Kuralon 80/2 were tested to obtain a correction factor for staple yarns. T ...

- ... The topography and structure of the primary wall of the cotton lint fiber are described and illustrated by electron micrographs. The changes in this thin membrane brought about by alkali boil (kiering), hypochlorite and peroxide bleaching, mercerization, acid hydrolysis, and dry heat are shown by means of microscopical examination of isolated pieces of the primary wall after exposure to these envi ...
