Regular rayon fibres were the first generation fibres produced. A wood cellulose purity of 90 - 92% is required. A woven fabric made entirely from conventional textile rayon is lustrous, smooth, pill-resistant and highly moisture absorbent.
Higher-tenacity rayon fibres are most often extruded as continuous filaments. They have a degree of polymerization approaching that of the cellulose source, with a maximum orientation and a crystalline structure. A woodpulp with fairly high alpha content and very low degraded fibre content is most suitable for these applications.
