What are the abbreviations of fiber names?

The continuous progress of science and technology and the growing needs of the people make the varieties of chemical fibers rich and colorful. At present,
The differentiation rate of chemical fibers in Japan, South Korea, and other countries has reached more than 50%. There are many kinds of chemical fibers, which are commonly used in abbreviations
Said that it has brought some inconvenience to textile product designers and weaving, printing, and dyeing producers.
In daily work, fiber abbreviations are rough as follows [(1) ~ (4) some abbreviations are repeated but in order to maintain this part
The integrity of abbreviations, so they still appear repeatedly; some of them are trade names.

  1. Polyester dipped wool like silk
    The warp is [167dtex (150 denier) DTY filament + 182dtex (32 British count) t / R yarn (65:35 for t: R)] after grid connection, add 10 twist / cm, and the weft is 182dtex (32 British count) t / C yarn (65:35 for t: C). That is, the warp is [167dtex (150 denier) stretch deformed polyester filament and 182drex (32 British count) polyester / viscose yarn (65% for polyester staple fiber and 35% for viscose staple fiber)] combined network, plus 10 twist / cm, and the weft is 182dtex (32 British count) polyester / viscose yarn (65% for polyester staple fiber and 35% for viscose staple fiber).
  2. Similar pattern brocade
    The warp is 55 6dtex (50 denier) Pa plus 8 twists / cm, and there are two groups of weft, 133 dtex (120 denier) sb CV for weft A and 83 dtex (75 denier) deformed pet for weft B. That is, the warp is 55.6 dtex (50 denier) nylon filament plus 8 twist / cm, the first weft is 133 dtex (120 denier) glossy viscose fiber, and the second weft is 83 dtex (75 denier) deformed polyester filament.
