Metal

A metal is generally considered to be a pure element which readily forms cations. Metals are characterised by their opacity and high thermal and electrical conductivities, the latter properties resulting from the delocalised and mobile nature of the electrons over the crystal structure.

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.
