Interesting facts about cotton

 

The vast majority of cotton produced today goes to the textile industry. Cotton accounts for some 33 percent of global production of textile fibres (including other natural fibres and synthetics). When it comes to natural fibres, cotton makes up 75 percent of the whole. It is by far the most common natural fibre used in home and clothing textiles.

However, the material is also used in many other areas, for instance for dressings in healthcare or in the cosmetics and hygiene industry as cotton wool.

Frequently, fishing nets, ropes and cables are made completely or partly of cotton fibres. The same goes for tents, tarpaulins and weatherproof covers. In the past, cotton was even used to make fire hoses. It is also used in the manufacture of some types of paper, cellulose, coffee filters, book covers and banknotes.

Another area of application is in fibre-reinforced plastics. These are mainly used for thermosetting compound materials in truck cabs.[41] The high elasticity of cotton fibres means adding them to other natural fibres produces a much better impact resistance of the final material.

Cellulose/paper

  • Organisation and handling of transshipments
  • Very large, well-organised warehouses with special attachments on the forklifts to prevent any damage while taking into and out of storage

Interesting facts about cellulose/paper:

Cellulose is the main component of plant cell walls (with a mass share of some 50%). It is therefore the most common organic compound and also the commonest polysaccharide. It is unbranched and consists of several hundred to ten thousand β-D-glucose molecules (β 1.4 glycosidic binding) or cellulose units.

The cellulose structures link together to form higher structures that often perform static functions in plants as tough fibres. Cellulose is an important raw ingredient in paper manufacturing, in the chemicals industry and elsewhere.

Info Wool:

Wool, according to the textile labeling law, is the soft hair of the coat (in contrast to the top coat), especially of the sheep.

In a broader sense, it also refers to the spinnable hairs of other mammals (eg goats, camelas and angora rabbits) which are often provided with an animal-specific intent (eg angora wool) or expressly referred to as "hair" ( eg camel hair).
