Accordingly, kapok fiber has been regarded hitherto as unsuitable material for the spinnable basic material in the spinning industry and has been substantially used only for making mattresses and life jackets, whereby application of kapok fiber has been restricted within a narrow range. Blending with other fibers or treatment with synthetic resin are the options. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
