what are synthetic fibres ?
Synthetic fibres are those fibres which have been made artificially, using chemicals. That is why they are known as synthetic fibres. Rayon, nylon, acrylic, and polyester are examples of such fibres.
They have been used in making ropes, tooth brush bristles, non stick crockery, bottles, jars, wires, etc.
Synthetic fibers are the result of extensive research by scientists to improve on naturally occurring animal and plant fibers. In general, synthetic fibers are created by forcing, usually through extrusion, fiber forming materials through holes (called spinnerets) into the air, forming a thread. Before synthetic fibers were developed, artificially manufactured fibers were made from cellulose, which comes from plants. These fibers are called cellulose fibers
