Drawn Textured Yarn (DTY) is a polyester yarn which is textured using a texturizing machine. In this process, partially oriented yarns are dispersed, twisted and drawn to introduce durable crimp twists, interlaces and loops which result in a higher bulk and greater stretch.
Depending on the luster of the filaments used, DTY can be categorized into Semi Dull, Bright or Trilobe Bright. It is commonly used in the production of curtains, bed-sheets and carpets.
Polypropylene (PP) yarns are classified into Partially Oriented Yarns and Fully Drawn Yarns. The former is incompletely stretched, while the latter is a fully oriented yarn obtained from high-speed spinning.
Full Drawn Yarn is produced by a method similiar to POY manufacturing except that the spinning process is coupled with intermediate drawing integrated in the process itself, which allows stabilisation through orientation and crystallization. All critical yarn properties such as tenacity, elongation, Uster variation and boiling water shrinkage are closely monitored and controlled, thus resulting in a higher quality product.
The main use of Full Drawn Yarn
is in the production of a wide variety of fabrics. These include Home Furnishing Fabrics, Fashion Fabrics, Denim, Terry Towel and many others.
FDY is characterized by a high degree of crimp and shrinkage properties and is available in different shades. It is a perfect replacement for cotton and cotton blend fabrics. The low moisture observing nature of this yarn makes it popular for body clinging garments and other outdoor applications.
