Bicomponent fibers are comprised of two individual components distributed over the full length of the finished fiber. The components can be from the same or entirely different polymer types, and each might possess distinct physical or chemical properties.
In creating two polymers to create a single fiber, the unique properties of each are imparted on the bicomponent fiber. This results in a bicomponent fiber with specific characteristics that can be applied in variety of applications.
Concentric sheath/core is a configuration used to melt fibers with a low melting point polymer sheath around a core with a high melting point. The concentric sheath/core process is also applied to produce fibers with a quality, higher-price core with a weaker external polymer outer layer.
