Cellulose Acetate

Neucel A94 and A96

Cellulose acetate is one of the earliest synthetic fibers and is based on cotton or tree pulp cellulose ("biopolymers"). Acetate is a very valuable manufactured fiber that is relatively low cost and has good draping qualities. The properties of acetate have promoted it as the “beauty fiber”.

  • Hand: soft, smooth, dry, crisp, and resilient.
  • Comfort: breathes, wicks, dries quickly, no static cling
  • Drape: linings move with the body linings conform to the garment
  • Color: deep brilliant shades with atmospheric dyeing meet colorfast requirements
  • Luster: light reflection creates a signature appearance
  • Performance: colorfast to perspiration staining, colorfast to dry cleaning, air and vapor permeable
  • Tenacity: weak fiber with breaking tenacity of 1.2 to 1.4 g/d; rapidly loses strength when wet; must be dry-cleaned
  • Abrasion: poor resistance
  • Heat retention: poor thermal retention; no allergenic potential (hypoallergenic)
  • Dyeability: (two methods) cross-dying method where yarns of one fiber and those of another fiber are woven into a fabric in a desired pattern; solution-dying method provides excellent colorfastness under the effects of sunlight, perspiration, air contaminants and washing.
