Abstract
In this research, investigating the possibility of producing, processing and also characterization of polypropylene fiber and recycling polypropylene has been presented. For this purpose, PP powder and inorganic filler were mixed using a twin screw extruder and modified granule was produced. After producing as-spun filament yarns by spinning machine at the take-up speed of 2000 m/min, samples were drawn, textured and finally weft knitted. Physical and structural properties of as-spun and drawn yarns with constant and variable draw ratios were investigated. The experimental results revealed that the straight run PP yarn impact tolerance is higher than the recycled PP yarn. And both type of yarns could be compared by drawing process. The straight run and recycled polypropylene filament woven laminates performed better in terms of both tensile load and broken elongation, with slight decrease in broken elongation results.
