Belarus to produce knitting yarn from bioflax
Apr '13
Belarus has evolved a unique technology of producing knitting yarn from bioflax, BeITA reported quoting Tatiana Silich, Candidate of Science (Engineering), Head of the Minsk Experimental Raw Materials Department of the Light Industry Research Centre.
The technology is unique in itself, as it uses bioflax that is flax rolled tow, which has been made to pass through mechanical cottonizing and ferments. Cottonizing and special treatment helps remove dust and dirt, foreign material and chaff from the yarn, and can be used to break down yarn in finer components.
Using the new technology, knitwear producers of Belarus and other CIS states can now make flax-containing yarn, which is almost two-times thinner than the yarn they process at present. Also, it is possible to obtain patent for this technology in these territories, Ms. Silich added.
Besides enhancing the thinness of the woven yarn, the new technology is also expected to boost the use of flax in woven yarn from existing 20-25 percent to 50 percent.
The yarn containing bioflax has been used to produce an entire range of extremely light goods with super hygienic quality and modern designs. This new range of products would be featured in Belarus outlets this summer, Ms. Silich said.
She added that the Research Centre is now trying to develop a technology, which would help producers of woven yarn to substitute use of imported cotton in their products with Belarus-grown flax, to some extent.
The Light Industry Research Center is a research organization functioning under the Belarusian light industry of the Belarusian state light industry concern “Bellegprom”.
