Research Progress on Film Cutting and Twisting into Yarn


Abstract: As a new method of spinning, film cutting and twisting into yarn shortens the traditional staple spinning process by cutting polymer films, nonwovens, paper and other sheet materials into narrow strips and then twisting them into yarn. The article reviews the production process, yarn properties and applications of yarns made of three materials, namely, polymer film, nonwovens and paper, analyzes the problems in the existing research, and provides the direction for the subsequent research.

Key words: polymer film; nonwovens; paper; cutting; twisting
