Bally specializes in a wide variety of manufactured fiber types.

Man-made fibers are produced by combining polymers or small molecules. An example of a raw material is petroleum-based chemicals. The typical manufacturing process is as follows:

  1. Begins as a solid pellet, chip, or flake.
  2. Heated to its melting point.
  3. Extruded through a spinneret, like a shower head, and solidifies in the cool air.
  4. Filaments are stretched and orient into an orderly arrangement. This stretching process gives the filament both its strength and elasticity.
  5. Multiple filaments are combined into a bundle to form a filament yarn.
  6. Yarn is graded into deniers (sizes) and used in the weaving, braiding, or knitting of fabric. (A monofilament is extruded as a single filament like a fishing line)
