A generic name for a modified rayon fiber that has high tenacity and high wet modulus. Modal fibers were initially developed in the 1930's for industrial uses in tires, conveyor belts and hose pipes. Changes in the rayon processing, such as the spin conditions, chemical solutions and stretching sequences, produced rayon fibers with increased crystalline and thus, greater strength. Additional developments in Japan in 1951 by S. Tachikawa lead to the production of rayon with a high wet modulus. These specific types of modal fibers are called polynosic fibers. Modal fibers are dimensionally stable and do not shrink or get pulled out of shape when wet like many rayon. They are also wear resistant and strong while maintaining a soft, silky feel. Modal fibers have found a wide variety of uses in clothing, outwear and household furnishings. They are often blended with cotton, wool or synthetic fibers.

Modal is type of viscose. Modal fabric has softness, good drape and is comfortable for wearing  Modal fabric has good moisture regain and air permissibility which is often considered better than cotton fabric, it is a good material for exercise clothing and health suit, which can serve to benefit physiology circulation and health of the body.  Modal fabric has level up surface, fine and smooth and velvet, which have the effect of natural silk.  The yarn has the character of high strength.  The fabric has good softness and brilliant luster.  The effect of the finished Modal garment is very good, and the form is steady.  The garment maintains anti-crease properties and has relatively easy care.

Modal is a bio-based fiber made by spinning (Spinning is the process of creating yarn (or thread, rope, cable) from various raw fiber materials.)reconstructed cellulose (Cellulose (C6H10O5)n is a long-chain polymeric polysaccharide carbohydrate, of beta-glucose. It forms the primary structural component of green plants. The primary cell wall of green plants is made primarily of cellulose; the secondary wall contains cellulose with variable amounts of lignin. Lignin and cellulose, considered together, are termed lignocellulose, which (as wood) is the most common biopolymer on Earth. Only one group of animals, the tunicates, have evolved the ability to create and use cellulose.)from beech trees. It is about 50% more hygroscopic, or water-absorbent, per unit volume than cotton is. It is designed to dye just like cotton, and is color-fast when washed in warm water. Modal is essentially a variety of rayon.

Textiles made from Modal do not fibrillate, or pill, like cotton does, and are resistant to shrinkage and fading. They are smooth and soft, more so than even mercerized cotton, to the point where mineral deposits from hard water, such as lime, do not stick to the fabric surface. Like pure cotton, modal needs to be

ironed after washing.
