Filament


The smallest unit of a fibrous material. The basic units formed during drawing and spinning, which are gathered into strands of fibre for use in composites. Filaments usually are of extreme length and very small diameter, usually less than 25 micron. Normally filaments are not used individually. Some textile filaments can function as yarn when they are of sufficient strength and flexibility.
