DTY FOR AIR COVERED YARN/SPANDEX COVERED YARN

October 17,2023

Draw Textured Yarn (DTY) plays a crucial role in the manufacturing of air covered yarn and spandex covered yarn.

These specialized yarn types are widely used in the textile industry, especially in the production of stretchable and comfortable fabrics.

1. Air Covered Yarn (ACY):

Air covered yarn is a composite yarn created by covering one or more filaments or threads with another. DTY is used as one of the components in the production of ACY. Here's how DTY is used in the process:

Core: DTY is often used as the core in the production of ACY. The DTY core provides strength and stability to the yarn structure.

Covering Process: In the air covering process, DTY is encased or covered with another yarn component, which can be spandex, nylon, or other materials. This covering process is what gives ACY its stretchable and comfortable properties.

Stretchability: DTY's inherent stretchability combines with the covering material to create fabrics that have excellent stretch and recovery properties. This is particularly valuable in sportswear, activewear, and undergarments.

2. Spandex Covered Yarn(SCY):

Spandex covered yarn, as the name suggests, involves spandex as the core material, and DTY is used in the covering process. Here's how DTY contributes to spandex covered yarn:

Core Material: Spandex is known for its exceptional elasticity, making it a popular choice for stretchable fabrics. DTY is used as the covering material for the spandex core.

Enhanced Strength: DTY covering provides additional strength and stability to the spandex core, preventing overstretching and ensuring the yarn retains its shape.

Versatility: Spandex covered yarn with a DTY covering is versatile and can be used in a wide range of applications, from sportswear and athleisure to medical textiles and undergarments.

Both ACY and SCY benefit from DTY's unique combination of stretchability, softness, and strength. This combination allows manufacturers to create textiles that are comfortable, durable, and well-suited for applications where flexibility and resilience are essential.
