millicandela per m2. The candela is the SI (Systéme International) unit for luminous intensity.
part of a production route for making nonwovens; the web is cohered by using inter-fibre friction caused by physical entanglement. The entanglement can be caused by needles, high pressure water jets (hydroentanglement) or air jets.
a yarn produced from coloured printed tops or slivers. It is indistinguishable from a mixture yarn in that each fibre carries more than one colour.
part of a production route for making a nonwoven fabric; extruded synthetic filaments are sucked by high pressure air jets from the die to form random length, very fine fibres which are deposited on to a belt.
Melt flow index:
an indication of the viscosity of molten polymer. The index serves to indicate the flow characteristics of a melt under given temperature and pressure conditions.
