Manufactured from 100% Cotton Yarn. Available in 250g and 500g cones. It is designed specifically for use in the cotton industry to sew bales of cotton destined for ginneries.
Effects of moisture
Moisture swells the fibre and has the effect of increasing the strength of the cotton; however prolonged exposure to moisture increases the chances of microbial attack on the fibre which leads to a decrease in strength.
Cotton is attacked by hot dilute or cold concentrated acid solutions.
Acid hydrolysis of cellulose produce hydro-celluloses.
Cold weak acids do not affect the cotton.
The fibres show excellent resistance to alkalis.
Cotton is degraded mainly by the hydrolysis effect of acids.
Effect of temperature
In a dry state, cotton can be heated up to 150 degrees Celsius without decomposing but when the heating is prolonged, a brown colour develops, signaling the onset of decomposition.
