Functional fabrics not only have the characteristics of the fabric itself, but also have functions such as water repellency and anti-static. They are generally designed to adapt to certain unusual environments. There are many types of functional fabrics for finishing. Below we will introduce you to several common functional fabrics.
Water-blocking fabric:It is usually made of polytetrafluoroethylene film and laminated fabric. In addition to blocking water, the new water-blocking fabric can also drain the internal moisture to the outside. And evaporate, the air permeability has been greatly improved compared to before, and the occurrence of mildew has been greatly reduced.
Color-changing fabric: This is a fabric that changes color as the external environment (heat temperature, etc.) changes. When finishing, just apply the discolored material on the cloth surface to change color. Fabrics are mainly used in transportation clothing, swimsuits and other clothing. Color-changing fabrics are also used in some performance clothing.
Fire-retardant fabric: Fire-retardant fabric is also a new type of functional fabric. It is made of polyester/pure cotton treated with fire-retardant agent. The fabric is non-toxic, safe and washable. Fire-retardant fabric will be used in metallurgy, chemical industry and Protective clothing will be used in the firefighting field.
Thermal insulation fabric:As the name suggests, it is a fabric with thermal insulation effect. It achieves thermal insulation effect by converting solar energy into heat.
Anti-static fabric: This kind of fabric can avoid the generation of static electricity to a large extent, and dust in the air is not easy to adhere to work clothes. It is used in the production of dust-proof clothing and carpets and other fabrics. Will be used.
Radiation-proof fabric: The metal is infiltrated into the fabric through electrolysis to achieve the effect of radiation protection. It is often used in telecommunications transmitter rooms. Another kind of radiation-proof fabric draws metal into filaments and blends it with chemical fiber fabric, but the radiation-proof effect is not as good as this kind.
Antibacterial and deodorant fabrics: With the upgrading of technology, the antibacterial properties of fabrics have been particularly improved and are gradually used in the field of workwear and home textiles.
Electromagnetic wave shielding fabric:This kind of fabric is mainly used to reduce the impact of electromagnetic waves emitted by televisions, computers and other equipment on the human body, but it is not used much in home and work wear.
