Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2013074453A2] Disclosed is a process for preparing crimpable bicomponent fibers from two poly(trimethylene terephthalate) starting materials that differ from one another in intrinsic viscosity. One starting material is characterized by an intrinsic viscosity <= 0.7 dL/g. The relatively low intrinsic viscosity allows the employment of a low melt temperature, with concomitant reduction in the evolution of acrolein, and without significant degradation in the properties or processibility of the bicomponent fiber.
