In case of wet spinning of polymers, the polymer solution is forced through spinnerates into, a coagulating bath to give a filament form. Wet spinning is not used in case of the __________ fibres.

A. viscose rayon
B. acrylic
C. polyvinyl acetate
D. saturated polyester


Melt spinning of polymers involves the forcing of polymer melt through spinnerettes (fine holes) into an atmosphere kept at a temperature lower than the melting point of the polymer, which causes the fine diameter polymer melt to harden into filaments.

A. acrylic
B. polyester
C. nylon 6:6
D. polypropylene
