New possibilities for analysing fibre in textile technology

A new instrument means fibre analysis is improved in both research and education. Its purpose is to spin fibres into thread; they can also be reused.

Staple fibres are fibres with the necessary length and properties so that, through a spinning process, a yarn can be formed. With the new instrument, length and tensile properties are better assessed. The research leader is Nawar Kadi, Professor of Textile Technology.
