    Abstract

    A procedure for the cross-sectioning of textile fibers is described. The fibers are placed in microlitre pipet tubes to which a mounting medium is added. After the mounting medium has dried, the tubes are cut with a razor blade. The method is quick and simple, usable on almost all types of fibers, and usable on fibers as short as 1 mm. The method also allows for easy recovery of the cross sections and the whole fiber from the mount and for the subsequent determination of denier.
