CONT

La texturation par fausse torsion consiste à étirer un fil de filaments, à le torsionner et à le chauffer de façon simultanée. Ce procédé très efficient permet de gonfler un fil pour lui conférer des propriétés thermo-isolantes ou autres, en plus de lui procurer des caractéristiques tactiles et visuelles propres. Le produit final est bobiné sur des tubes utilisés dans les procédés subséquents de teinture, de tissage et de tricotage.
