After a brief summary of the findings and conclusions of the previously reported investigations on the air-jet texturing process, a mechanism of loop formation is postulated. The factors affecting loop formation are analysed in the light of the mechanism described. This mechanism of loop formation is claimed to be valid for all types of texturing nozzle because the underlying requirement to create a supersonic, turbulent, and non-uniform flow is common to all satisfactory air-jet texturing nozzles.
