Properties Of the Yarns Produced From r-PET Fibers (Recycled PET Bottle Fibers) and Their Blends

r-PET fibers are basically derived from recycling PET bottle wastes.

These fibers can be accepted as eco-friendly because of their advantages and contributions to the reduction of energy and raw material costs.

In this study, properties of the yarns produced by r-PET fibers and their blends and their availability for textile industry were comparatively investigated.

Tensile strength, elongation, evenness, hairiness properties and IPI fault values of yarns spun using 9 different blend ratios were measured and their results were statistically evaluated.
