MIR-AUS supply Acrylic Fiber “coming soon” Acrylic fiber is a synthetic fiber that closely resembles wool in its character. According to the definition of the ISO (International Standards Organization) and BISFA (International Synthetic Fiber Standardization Office), fibers which contain a minimum of 85% acrylonitrile in their chemical structure are called “Acrylic Fibers”. The textile industry is primarily concerned with the design, production and distribution of yarn, cloth and clothing. The raw material may be natural, or synthetic using products of the chemical industry. Acrylic fiber is composed of acrylonitrile and a comonomer. The comonomer is added to improve dyeability and the textile processability of the acrylic fiber. Acrylic fiber is produced with two different systems: wet spinning and dry spinning. Acrylic fiber can be supplied as producer-dyed either by pigmentation of the dope or with jel dyeing systems. It can be used 100% alone, or in blends with other natural and synthetic fibers.
