Low-shrinkage yarns are another technical yarn segment. The name refers to the fact that these yarns and the fabrics and knits made from them do not shrink when heated. They are used whenever high temperatures are applied during downstream processing. Important areas of application, for instance, are truck tarpaulins and other coated textiles.
For this application, the configuration with 5 godet duos is ideal since the fifth duo is used for heatsetting, significantly increasing the form stability of polyester yarns.
