Polyester Partially Oriented Yarn (POY)

IS Standard : IS 17262:2022

Polyester yarn that comes under the larger category of polyester industrial yarn is known as partially oriented yarn, or POY. It is a synthetic fiber that is created by polymerizing a chemical substance called polyethylene terephthalate (PET). 

Polyester Partially Oriented Yarn, or POY for short, is a multifilament yarn that is produced by only partially stretching it. It is the main type of yarn made from melted and spun polyester chips. The textile and clothing industry relies heavily on polyester partly oriented yarn because of its strength, versatility, and compatibility for a wide range of fabric kinds. These yarns are also used in warp knitting and draw warping of textiles. 

Polyester POY is in high demand since it may be used in a variety of textile and industrial applications. It is an essential raw material for the creation of polyester staple fibers, which are used to make non-woven fabrics, textiles, apparel, and home furnishings. Seasonal fluctuations, economic situations, and fashion trends also have an impact on the demand for polyester POY. 

Under IS standard IS 17262:2022, all polyester partly oriented yarn (POY) is now required to be part of the ISI Certification Scheme.

The requirements for each category of polyester partly oriented yarns (POY) meant for various end uses are described in this standard. In addition to meeting the standard's environmental requirements, the polyester POY must adhere to the performance and construction characteristics. The yarn must also be free of noticeable defects, and the standard's testing must be carried out in a facility that is staffed and equipped appropriately, adhering to the guidelines.
Without the ISI Mark, this product cannot be marketed, imported, or exported into the Indian consumer market.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.

  • Identifying the applicable Indian Standard
  • Establishing in-house testing facilities to meet the Standard's requirements

Step 2: Sample Testing

  • Obtaining the necessary certificate for raw materials (Material Test Certificate - MTC)
  • Conducting product sample testing at a BIS-recognized testing laboratory
