Polyester (POY), that is, partially oriented yarn is a type of polyester filament yarn. This type of yarn requires further processing, namely, the drawing process, which produces primary form of polyester filament yarn through polymerisation and spinning process.  Thus, Polyester (POY) is mainly utilised as a raw material for DTY (polyester drawn textured yarn).  It refers to multi-filament that has been partially stretched, further possessing lower tenacity and less uniformity than fully oriented yarn (FOY).  


  • Partially oriented yarns (POY)
  • Pre-oriented yarns (POY)

Industrial Uses

  • Synthetic fibre yarns 
  • Fabrics and dress materials
  • Draw warping for weaving
  • Warp knitting of fabrics

Production Process

  • Production of Polymer (POY) via Melting and Extrusion of Polyester Chips 

Partially oriented yarn is produced from the polyester chip or flake through the process of melting and extrusion (melt spinning).  During the spinning process, which utilises the spinning system containing the extruder and the spinning pump, the filaments are stretched to meet the desired properties , thus producing Polymer (POY).
