DP ACETATE celulose filament yarn can be twisted or plied. The purpose of the twisting process is to endow the acetate yarn with compact properties and the products made from such acetate yarn, with special characteristics. The structure rendered to the yarn during the twisting process reduces acetate yarn and filament breaking in a variety of textile processes and aids the processing thereof.
Products made from twisted acetate yarn are more rigid. The intensity of acetate yarn twisting is described using the twist indicator, i.e. an average number of twists per one metre of acetate yarn.
