What is viscose is it a type of cotton?

Viscose rayon is a man-made fiber made from wood pulp though other materials may be used. It is basically modified cellulose. Viscose is very similar to cotton and silk. (Cotton is also made of cellulose). Viscose falls somewhere in between a natural fiber and a man-made one. The raw material for viscose is cellulose which is usually reacted with caustic soda and carbon disulfide. It is reformed as fibers by spinning this viscose solution in an acid bath. Viscose rayon has a silky appearance and feel, and also has the ability to breathe in a manner similar to cotton weaves.

How do you identyfy cotton yarn and viscose yarn?

If you had a length of cotton yarn and a length of viscose (or rayon, is another word for viscose), yarn and you were attempting to differentiate between the two, it is tricky. I would suggest that you wet both strands of yarn, and pull them. The rayon will stretch more and be less strong than the cotton. The rayon will also absorb more water than the cotton yarn.

Why does wet viscose has less strength than dry viscose?

viscose has 67 % amorphous region & 33% crystalline reason exactly reverse of cotton ,so viscose absorb more moisture than cotton as well as due to hydrogen bonding (formation of hydrogen bonds means addition of bonds) wet strength of cotton increases but in case of viscose no of hydyogen bonding breaks are much more(means break up of hydrogen bonds are much more than addition) so wet strength decreases.

Why wet strength of cotton is higher than viscose fiber?

due to hydrogen bonding no of molecular rearrangement in the structure is more than viscoce in viscose hydrogen bonds break up is more in terms of molecular arrangement so wet strength of cotton is higher than viscose fibre

Is viscose biodegradable?

Viscose is a type of cellulose fiber that has been around since the early 1900's. Yes, viscose is biodegradable and it can be dyed easily.

Is viscose suitable for summer?

Viscose fabric breathes much the same way cotton fabric does. It would be good to wear in hot weather as it is good for dispelling heat from he body.
