The smallest unit of a fibrous material. The basic units formed during spinning and which are gathered into strands of fiber, (for use in composites). Filaments usually are of extreme length and of very small diameter. Filaments normally are not used individually. Some textile filaments can function as a yarn when they are of sufficient strength and flexibility.
Extruded synthetic fibers used to create brush tufts.
A continuous strand of one of the man-made or synthetic fibers created by the extrusion process.
Latin filamentum = a delicate fibre, adjective - filamentous.
Fiber which has been extruded and is then converted into yarn fiber, staple, or tow.
A long fine hair or fiber.
Fiber characterized by extreme length, many filaments bundled together are called a roving or tow, the number of rovings determine the bandwidth in filament winding.
A hair-like particle or "rod" of glass used to make fiberglass yarns and threads. A fiberglass filament can be made in virtually an endless length.
A fine or thinly spun thread or fiber.
a very slender natural or synthetic fiber
a continuous-length fibre that requires no length addition for yarn manufacture
a fibre of continuous length
a fine, thread-like structure
a hair-like strand of cells joined end to end
a thinly spun thread, fiber, or wire
a continuous thread of a specified diameter, e.g. silk (natural fiber) or rayon (synthetic fiber); the opposite of a fiber with a finite length, such as wool or cotton
A single glass fiber that is drawn from one tip of a bushing.
The finished fibre used in sheer hosiery is called filament yarn. It is characterised by continuous length and is extruded either as monofilament yarns, which is composed of one single strand, or multifilament yarn which is made up of several filaments bundled together.
A single continuous strand of a synthetic fiber.
Fiber of extreme length used in yarns and other compositions with little or no twist and usually without the spinning operations required for fibers.
A single textile element of small diameter compared to its length (it can be continuous or discontinuous) (according to ISO/DIS 13922).
A manufactured fiber of indefinite length (continuous), extruded from the spinneret during the fiber production process.
Any continuous strand or fiber, either man-made (such as nylon) or natural (such as silk).
a bacterial cell with a length at least 10 times its width.
A single natural or synthetic fiber in a continuous strand.
This is like a metallic thread that has been flattened. It comes in many colors, it glitters, and golds and silvers are popular. It is normally sewn using two or three threads of filament in a needle, or with one strand of filament and one or two strands of floss. It is known as a 'blending filament'.
A fine or thinly spun thread; a fiber.
A single continuous strand of natural or synthetic fiber.
A single thread-like fiber of extruded glass. Typically microns in diameter.
A strong, smooth, extremely long fiber that permits the use of filament in yarn without twist or with very low twist.
a single textile element of small diameter and very long length considered as continuous
A continuous strand of silk or manmade fiber.
A fibre of indefinite length.
(1) A continuous thread of a specified diameter, e.g. silk (natural fibre) or rayon (synthetic fibre); the opposite of a fibre with a finite length, such as wool or cotton (2) A variety of fiber characterized by extreme length, which permits its use in yarn with little or no twist and usually without the spinning operation required for fibers
A very fine or thread-like fiber
A single fibril of natural or synthetic textile fiber. Filaments are twisted or bunched to form fibers.
Filament is a continuous strand of silk or man-made fiber.
A fiber of an indefinite length.
single strand of any kind of fiber
1. A very slender thread or fiber. 2. The fine metal wire in a light bulb, which becomes incandescent when heated by electric current.
