Polyester Manufacturers
PSF

Polyester Staple Fiber (PSF) is a material produced from synthetic chemical compounds with a variety of uses in the textile, automotive and furniture industries. The phrase "staple fiber" often refers to a kind of natural fiber such as cotton or wool.

Due to the high demanding of polyester staple fiber (PSF) in the world’s market, PSF is one of the company’s top products TPC, as TPC is the recognized Polyester Staple Fiber and Spun yarn manufacturer with the approximate 233,600 ton annually capacity.

PSF Machine

Polyester Staple Fiber (PSF) is made from polymerization process of polyester material such as PTA (Purified Terephthalic Acid) and MEG (Mono Ethylene Glycol) under a high temperature and pressure. After the spinning and drawing process, polymer becomes staple fibers when cut short according to specific cut length.

Deniers and cut length are the major factors which are very important for PSF, size and length will be related with the end product. Denier could be created in numerous sizes up to POY such as 1.0/1.2/1.4 D etc. The cut length can be various. Furthermore, most using cut lengths are 31/38/44/51 mm.

The differences of denier and cut length also effects on the difference of hand feel and size of products. The smaller denier and shorter cut length bring about softer and smoother feeling.

A. There are
two types of
Polyester
Staple
Fiber.

1. Virgin
Polyester
Staple
Fiber
(PSF)

Virgin polyester staple fiber (PSF) is made from a non-renewable polyester and using an energy intensive process. Therefore, virgin PSF is produced from PFY which is non-renewable polyester. The colors that we provide are:

1.1 Raw White (RW)

RW is the nature color of the polyester, not pass any dyed process.

1.2 Dope Dye Black (DDB)

DDB is the black color polyester staple fiber. The black color is created by the black master-batch since the beginning of POY process with high temperature. Therefore, DDB PSF will have non-staining function quality and pale color.

2. Recycled
Polyester
Staple
Fiber
(GPSF)

Recycled polyester staple fiber is made from PET/Polyester waste and post consumer PET bottles.

Recycled polyester, also known as R-PET, is obtained by melting down existing plastic and re-spinning it into new polyester fiber. It is a great way to divert plastic from our landfills and the production of recycled polyester requires far fewer resources than new fibers and generates fewer Co2 emissions.

The colors of recycled polyester staple fiber which TPC provides are:

2.1 Raw White (RW)

RW for recycled polyester staple fiber is slightly difference from any virgin polyester PSF. Its color looks fairly yellow which is natural from the process.

2.2 Dope Dye Black (DDB)

DDB for recycled polyester looks similar to virgin PSF. It also contains black master-batch since the process of melting before injecting. For this reason, there is no difference between Dope Dye Black virgin PSF and Dope Dyed Black Recycled staple fiber by vision.

Recycled Polyester Staple Fiber (GPSF)
But there is a mechanical test to detect which one is made from recycle and which one is made from virgin. It also has a standard testing. Normally, the recycled fibers and recycled yarns will be tested by third party which qualified by Global Recycled Standard (GRS), the standard certificate of recycling material and tracking process.

B. PSF luster

Luster refers to the degree of light that is reflected from the surface of a fiber or the degree of gloss or sheen that the fiber possesses.

1. Full dull

2. Semi-dull

Semi-dull yarn are manufactured from the raw materials which have low luster as compared to partially oriented
bright yarns are used to manufacture
semi dull polyester textured yarns.

Full dull yarns are manufactured
from the raw materials which are modified chemically and/or physically
to reduce their normal luster. Few of the qualities of full dull yarns are, they have high tenacity, strength and look like cotton fiber. These yarns are of good pendent, soft visual appeal and a strong covering. Full dull type of yarns have various applications in manufacturing apparels, home textiles etc.

Semi dull partially oriented yarns
have more strength and durability.
The end user applications of semi dull partially oriented yarns are in the garment and apparel industries for weaving and for doing embroidery works. These semi dull yarns are available in various deniers and filaments.

C. What kind
of product
is from
PSF?

1. Soften product

PSF Yarn is used in Non-Woven carpets,
wadding, filtration industries, as a
poly-fill for stuffing cushions, pillows, soft
toys, quilts etc.

2. Produce spun yarn

PSF is also used for spinning yarns or spun yarn and making geo-textiles.
