Technology Available for Multifilament Chito-san Yarn from Institute of Biopolymers & Che-mical Fibres, Poland

The Institute of Bioploymers and Chemical Fibres is in possession of the know- how and equipment to start the production of continuous chitosan fibres on an extended lab scale. The Institute is highly experienced in the wet – spinning of polysaccharides, especially chitosan. The Fibres from Natural Polymers department, run by Dr Dariusz Wawro, has elaborated a proprietary environmentlyfriendly method of producing continuous chitosan fibres with bobbins wound on in a form suitable for textile processing and medical application.

We are ready, in cooperation with our customers, to conduct investigations aimed at the preparation of staple and continuous chitosan fibres tailored to specific needs in preparing nonwoven and knit fabrics.

We presently offer a number of chitosan yarns with a variety of mechanical properties, and with single filaments in the range of 3.0 to 6.0 dtex. The fibres offer new potential uses in medical products like dressing, implants and cell growth media.
