Chlorine fiber is one of the earliest synthetic fibers in the world. It has many advantages such as water resistance, chemical resistance, corrosion resistance and non-combustibility. Therefore, it has achieved great success in clothing, especially in interior decoration applications. The main features of the fabric are as follows:
⑴Chloride fabric is a non-flammable fabric, it will be extinguished immediately after leaving the flame and will not continue to burn. It is a good non-combustible curtain and carpet material.
⑵Chloride fabric not only has good abrasion resistance, but also has good warmth retention. Its warmth retention is better than cotton and wool, which are 50% and 10-20% higher respectively.
⑶ Chlorine fiber fabric has good electrostatic insulation, which can be blended with other fibers to make underwear with the effect of curing rheumatism. The reason is that when it rubs against other fibers, it often carries a negative charge.
⑷The disadvantage of chlorinated fiber fabric is that the softening point is very low. Usually, it starts to soften and shrink when the temperature reaches 60~70℃. Therefore, be careful when washing and ironing, and try not to iron polyvinyl chloride fabrics.
Varieties of Chloride Fiber Fabric
Chlorine fiber fabrics are not heat resistant and limit their application range, mostly in decorative and industrial fabrics. There are not many varieties of chlorinated fiber fabrics used in clothing, mainly including chlorine/top velvet, sticky/chlorine flannel and chlorine/fuping cloth.
⑴Chlorine/top velvet Weave with polychlorinated and non-shrinkable wool, so that the wool protrudes from the surface to obtain striped velvet. This kind of fabric has a soft hand feeling and a beautiful appearance. It is an excellent material for curtains, curtains and other decorative objects. It can also be used as a fabric for evening dresses.
⑵Viscose/chlorinated flannel It is made of blended yarn with 70% viscose and 30% chlorinated fiber. The woven flannel has the characteristics of being resistant to heat and not easy to burn. It can be used as interior decoration cloth and underwear for the elderly and children.
⑶Chlorine/fuping cloth: Chlorine fiber and rich fiber are blended and processed in a ratio of 1:1. Its fabric performance is very similar to that of viscose/chlorine flannel, and it can be used as furniture covering.
