A process by which a heated polymer is forced through an orifice to form a molten stream that is cooled to form a fiber. Examples of this process are Polypropylene and Polyester.
Alternatively, a solution of polymer can be forced through an orifice into a solvent that causes the fiber to solidify. Examples are Kevlar and rayon.
