Microfiber home textiles

The diameter of microfiber is about a fifth of the diameter of a human hair. Microfiber is also known as fine denier fiber, very fine fiber. Generally, the fiber with a slenderness of 0.3 denier (5 microns in diameter) or less is called microfiber.
Due to its extremely fine fiber, microfiber textile greatly reducing the stiffness of the silk, as a fabric feel extremely soft, fiber fine can also increase the laminar structure of the silk, increasing the specific surface area and capillary effect, so that the fiber internal reflected light in the surface distribution more delicate, so that it has a silk-like elegant luster, and has good moisture absorption and moisture dispersion. The use of microfiber into clothing, comfortable, beautiful, warm, breathable, with good drape and fullness, in the hydrophobic and anti-fouling also significantly improved, the use of large surface area and soft features can be designed to different organizational structure to make it more absorb the sun’s heat or faster dissipation of body temperature to play the role of winter warmth and summer cool.

Applications Of microfiber textiles

Microfiber is widely used: it is used as fabric, after sand washing, grinding and other advanced finishing, the surface forms a layer similar to the appearance of peach fleece, and extremely fluffy, soft, smooth, with this fabric made of high-grade fashion, jackets, T-shirts, underwear, dress pants, etc.. Cool and comfortable, sweat absorption does not stick to the body, rich in youthful beauty; foreign with microfiber made of advanced artificial suede, both cool appearance of leather, feel good, style, low price; because of the microfiber and soft, with it made of cleaning cloth to remove dirt effect is very good, can wipe a variety of glasses, film and television equipment, precision instruments, no damage to the mirror; with microfiber can also be made of ultra-smooth surface ultra-high density fabric. Used to make skiing, ice skating, swimming and other sportswear can reduce resistance, conducive to athletes to create good results; in addition, microfiber can also be used for filtration, medical and health, labor protection and other fields.

Microfiber textile : FAQ

What is the microfiber fabric made of?

The most common types of microfiber are made from polyester, polyamides (e.g., nylon, Kevlar, Nomex, Bromelain) and combinations of polyester, polyamide and polypropylene. Microfibers are used to make mats, knitted and woven fabrics for apparel, upholstery, industrial filters and cleaning products. The shapes, sizes and combinations of synthetic fibers are selected for specific properties, including softness, toughness, absorbency, water resistance, electrostatic properties and filtration capabilities.

What is the history of the development of microfiber fabrics?

The production of microfiber fabrics dates back to the late 1950s, and the production chain mainly used meltblown and flash spinning technologies. In the early days of microfiber production, only random lengths of fine nails could be manufactured, and people did not use this fabric extensively. in the 1960s, Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto, a scientist at Toray Industries, conducted experiments in Japan to produce continuous filament type microfiber, and in the experiments, it was discovered that microfiber fabrics could be used in many industrial applications. in the 1970s, the The first successfully synthesized microfibers entered the market. Subsequently, the use of microfibers in the textile industry expanded. microfibers were first advertised in Sweden in the early 1990s and became successful as a product in Europe during this decade. Nowadays, microfiber fabrics are used in a wide range of applications.

What are the characteristics of microfiber textile?

The fiber fineness of 0.4μm diameter is only 1/10 of silk, and the warp-knitted towel cloth made by imported looms has a uniform, compact, soft and highly elastic surface property of fine fluffy mass, which has strong decontamination and water absorption performance. There is no damage to the wiped surface, and does not produce the common cotton fabric cilia shedding; easy to wash, durable, and traditional cotton towels, microfiber towels have six main features:

  1. Water absorption: The microfiber adopts orange petal technology to divide the filament into eight petals, which increases the surface area of the fiber and the pore space in the fabric, and enhances the water absorption effect with the capillary core absorption effect. Fast water absorption and fast drying become its remarkable characteristics.
  2. Strong decontamination power: 0.4μm diameter microfiber fineness is only 1/10 of silk, its special cross-section can more effectively capture small to a few microns of dust particles, decontamination, oil removal effect is very obvious.
  3. No shedding: High-intensity synthetic filament, not easy to break, while the use of fine weaving method, no draw, no loop, the fiber is not easy to fall off from the surface of the towel. It is especially suitable for wiping bright paint surface, plating surface, glass, instrument and LCD screen, etc. It can achieve very ideal film effect when doing cleaning treatment on glass in the process of film application.
  4. Long life: Because of the strength of the microfiber, toughness, so its service life is more than four times the life of ordinary towels, many times after washing is still unchanged, at the same time, polymer fibers will not produce protein hydrolysis like cotton fibers, even after use without drying, will not mold, rot, with a long life.
  5. Easy to clean: ordinary towel use, especially natural fiber towel, the wiped surface of the dust, grease, dirt, etc. directly absorbed into the fiber inside, residue in the fiber after use, not easy to remove, with a longer period of time will even harden and lose elasticity, affecting the use. The microfiber towel is the dirt adsorption between the fibers (rather than fiber internal), coupled with the high fiber, high density, so strong adsorption capacity, after use only need to use water or a little detergent cleaning.
  6. No color loss: The dyeing process adopts TF-215 and other dyeing agents for microfiber materials, and its slow dyeing, dye shifting, high temperature dispersion, and color elimination indexes all meet the strict standards of the export international market, especially its advantage of no color loss, so that it will not bring the trouble of decolorization and pollution at all when cleaning the surface of goods.
