Yarn (POY)

Partially Oriented Yarn (POY)

Partially Oriented Yarn (POY) is a widely utilized filament yarn in the textile industry. It is produced from synthetic fibers, predominantly polyester, through a specialized manufacturing process that incorporates partial orientation of the filaments. This partial orientation endows POY with unique and desirable properties, including excellent tensile strength, dimensional stability, and versatility. POY finds application in a diverse range of textile products due to its ability to deliver durability, resilience, and adaptability to different manufacturing processes.

The manufacturing process
of Partially Oriented Yarn (POY)

Partially Oriented Yarn (POY) is manufactured through a process called melt spinning. It begins by melting polyester chips or flakes, which are then extruded through spinnerets to form continuous filaments. These filaments undergo a cooling process to solidify them into a solid state.

After solidification, the filaments are partially stretched or oriented to achieve desired properties such as evenness, strength, shrinkage, and elongation. This stretching process involves mechanical stretching and heat treatment, allowing the filaments to increase up to five times their original size.

Once the filaments are partially stretched and oriented, they are wound onto bobbins for further use in various applications. This manufacturing process ensures that POY possesses the necessary properties to meet the requirements of different textile applications.

Moisture-resistant and Quick Drying

Partially Oriented Yarn is moisture-resistant and quick-drying. It doesn't absorb moisture, which keeps fabrics dry and prevents them from getting waterlogged. Fabrics made from POY dry quickly after getting wet, ensuring a fast drying time and maintaining comfort for the wearer.

Partially Oriented Yarn (POY) Home Textiles

Home Textiles

Partially Oriented Yarn is used in making various home textile products like curtains, upholstery fabrics, bed sheets, pillowcases, and blankets. Its softness, dimensional stability, and vibrant color retention properties make it ideal for improving the aesthetics and comfort of home interiors.

Partially Oriented Yarn (POY) Technical Textiles

Technical Textiles

Partially Oriented Yarn is used in technical textiles, which serve specific functional purposes. It finds application in geotextiles, medical textiles, automotive textiles, industrial fabrics, and filtration materials.

Partially Oriented Yarn (POY) Filament Yarn

Filament Yarn

Partially Oriented Yarn serves as a precursor for producing other types of filament yarns. It can be further processed into fully drawn yarn (FDY), texturized yarn, or air-jet textured yarn, which are used in various textile applications.

Partially Oriented Yarn (POY) Narrow Fabrics

Narrow Fabrics

Partially Oriented Yarn is used in the production of narrow fabrics, which are narrow-width textile products like ribbons, tapes, and straps. These narrow fabrics find applications in trimmings, labels, belts, webbings, and various decorative purposes.


Partially Oriented Yarn is available in various lusters, such as semi-dull and optical white. Optical white POY is designed to achieve a high level of whiteness, giving the yarn a pure white appearance. This makes it ideal for applications where a bright white color is desired.

Partially Oriented Yarn (POY) Colors


Partially Oriented Yarn is commonly available in raw white as well as a dope-dyed black color. The dope-dyed technology is highly efficient for coloring POY, ensuring even color distribution throughout the yarn. In this process, a color masterbatch is mixed with the raw material to create dope-dyed POY.
