Viscose fibres are produced from cellulose pulp. Cellulose is dissolved in alkaline solution by a chemical reaction with carbon disulphide and then spun to fibres in an acid spinning bath. The fibres are washed, dried and cut to intended fibre length.
Polyester fibre is produced from terephthalic acid and ethylene glycol, which react through condensation to polyester resin. The molten resin is spun to fibres through spinnerets and cooled with air. The fibers are then cut to intended fiber length.
