Identification characteristics of Ficus glomerata Fibres
Author(s): Aaditaa and Shahnaz Jahan
Abstract: Fibre identification is a process by which fibres are treated with different chemical reagents to observe the characteristics like staining, colour and solubility. Fabrics are made up of particular type of fibre, so the fibre identification help textile producers in many ways such as identifying type of fibres, its care instructions and labeling of material. In this study, Ficus glomerata Fibres are treated with different chemical reagents to observe its solubility, appearance and change in colour. The microscopic examination has also been done by using Scanning Electronic Microscope (SEM). The results of study revealed that Ficus glomerata Fibres shows a complete disintegration in some reagents while in some reagents it disintegrates partially and gives specific colour staining. In microscopic examination it was observed that fibres were cylindrical in shape with rough edges.
