IN MANY SITUATIONS, UNKNOWN FIBERS CAN BE IDENTIFIED USING A SIMPLE BURNING TEST. wHAT IS A DISTINCTIVE FEATURE AND COULD HELP ONE TO IDENTIFY POLYESTER?
PRODUCES HARD, ROUND, BLACK BEAD RESIDUE
wHAT'S A DISTINCTIVE FEATURE ASSOCIATED WITH BURNING PROTEIN FIBER?
ODOR SIMILAR TO BURNING HAIR OR FEATHERS
WHAT'S A DISTINCTIVE FEATURE ASSOCIATED ONLY WITH THE BURNING OF NATURAL CELLULOSIC FIBERS AND RAYON?
ODOR SIMILAR TO BURNING PAPER
WITH RESPECT TO TEXTILE FIBERS, "SELF-EXTINGUISHING" IS UNDERD TO MEAN:
A FIBER STOPS BURNING WHEN THE SOURCE OF IGNITION IS REMOVED
WHETHER FIBER-FORMING UNITS ARE SYNTHESIZED OR PROVIDED BY NATURE, THE SEQUENCE OF FIBER PRODUCTION IS THE SAME. THE ORDER IS:
ATOMS-MONOMERS-POLYMERS-FIBER

MELT SPINNING
HEAT IS USED TO DISSOLVE THE POLYMER COMPOUND; COLD CAUSES THE FILAMENTS TO SOLIDIFY FOLLOWING EXTRUSION
