Abstract: The steam-relaxation treatment of acrylic-rich yarns reduces their tenacity and abrasion resistance, but increases extensibility arid bulk. The adverse effects associated with steaming are more pronounced on OE rotor yams than ring yams and become .larger with increase in both acrylic content and yam tex. Yams produced from the cotton-majority mix, on the other hand, show slightly higher tenacity and lower breaking extension, residual shrinkage and abrasion resistance after steaming.
