Jun '09
BISFA (the International Bureau for Standardisation of Man-made Fibres) has just completed an updated and expanded 2009 version of its authoritative guide “Terminology of Man-made Fibres”.

The guide covers in details all issues related to terminology:
- Generic names of man-made fibres
- Morphological schemes
- Technical terms and definitions
- Process flow sheets of man-made fibres
- Manufacturing processes of nonwovens and their end-uses
- Morphological scheme of industrial yarns and their end-uses
- Statistical terms and definitions
- Designation of yarns in the tex system
- Application of SI units to man-made fibres
- Relative humidity
- Translation of technical terms.

BISFA Secretary General Bernard Defraye (who is also Head of the Technical and Environmental department of CIRFS: European Man-made Fibres Association) comments: “BISFA, as the recognised authority on technical standards in man-made fibres,has published its terminology guide for many years. There have been regular updates, the last in 2006. For the 2009 update, we decided to expand it with several new sections so as to increase its usefulness to the whole textile supply chain. The updating was carried out by a working group in which many BISFA member companies participated.

“It is a valuable source of information for the whole man-made fibres industry, and for all companies processing or distributing textiles made from man-made fibres. Proper understanding of terminology helps the smooth operation of the supply chain.”
