Plastics are used in equipment throughout the manufacturing process for textiles. Beginning with the conversion of fiber into yarn, fabric and then textiles, plastics materials are used to construct tenter frames and looms, as well as bearings and other components in the motors that run the equipment.
The templates, patterns and various tools used by garment and textile manufacturers to are constructed of plastics due to the high wear and low deformation properties of the plastics. In addition, work surfaces in the factories are plastic to protect the textiles against damage during manufacturing.
