Index of Materials - Fiber


Yarns or tows consisting of several approximately parallel individual filaments, each filament usually being smaller in diameter than a monofilament.

Yarns contain a defined number of filaments, typically three to several hundred; tows contain thousands of filaments whose number is only defined approximately. Both are primarily specified by their linear density measured in "tex", the weight in grams of a 1km length of material.
