Acetate and Triacetate

Definition: Acetate is "a manufactured fiber in which the fiber-forming substance is cellulose acetate. Where not less than 92% of the hydroxyl groups are acetylated, the term triacetate may be used as a generic description of the fiber" (Source- Textile Fiber Products Identification Act, Federal Trade Commission). Acetate was the second manufactured fiber to be developed.
