Breaking tenacity is term used to describe the tensile stress at rupture of a fibre, yarn, cord, or filament, expressed as the following: Newton per Denier or Tex measured in gram or force. Read more.
Denier is a term used to describe a unit of weight per unit of length of any linear material. A denier is expressing the coarseness or size, however, most of all the fineness of a relatively continuous fibre or yarn. A low number of denier indicate a finer size and higher numbers the coarser size. 0,05 grams per 450 metres of length are officially the number. Read more..
Fibre size, often referred to as fineness, is one of the most important properties of fibres. It is usually specified in terms of diameter or linear density. The size of natural fibers is often given as a diameter in micrometre units. It reflects the average width along the fibres length. Read more..
