What is Fully Oriented Yarn (FOY)?
FOY Polyester (also called Fully Drawn Yarn - FDY), is produced by a process similar to POY manufacturing except that the yarn is produced at even higher spinning speeds coupled with intermediate drawing integrated in the process itself. This allows stabilization through orientation and crystallization.
FOY is mainly used as weft or warp in making fabrics. FDY can be knitted or woven with any other filament yarn to get fabric of various different varieties. FOY Polyester yarn is used for industrial applications requiring uniformity and consistent tenacity, elongation, and shrinkage. Most binder yarns, industrial sewing threads, and hose reinforcements are produced from FOY polyester.
There are many different types of industrial polyester yarn, with varied physical properties that are controlled through the polymer formula and processing conditions of the POY or FOY yarn. Selecting the right yarn type can be challenging, so working with a reliable partner to match the right polyester yarn to your application is the key to quick optimization and product development.
