|Title:||Chemical Texturization of Ramie-Polypropylene Blended Yarns|
|Authors:||Gupta, N P|

|Abstract:||Ramie-polypropylene blended yarns have been texturized by treatment with 18% (wt/wt) sodium hydroxide solution at 25ᵒC. It is observed that texturization results in the formation of crimp in the ramie fibre and the polypropylene fibre migrates to the surface of the yarn forming loop, which improves the yarn bulk and extensibility at the cost of some loss in yarn strength.|
