With the gradual improvement of living standards, people's requests are increasingly, for example, they require pure natural high-grade cotton cloth as fabric in the clothing , then compared with other textile fibers ,what are advantage of cotton fabric?
Cotton is a natural fiber, the main ingredient is cellulose, a small amount of waxy substance, nitrogenous matter and pectin. After many inspection and practice, cotton fabric to the skin without any stimulation and negative effects,no harm to human if long wear,hygiene performance is very good.
100% cotton fabric has good heat resistance, in 110 ℃or less, evaporation of water will cause the fabric will not damage the fiber, so at normal temperature, wear, use, washing and dyeing of fabrics have no effect, thereby it improved washing or heat resistance.
Cotton fiber has good moisture absorption, under normal circumstances,fiber can absorb water to the atmosphere , in its water content of 8-10%, so if it contacts the skin, people feel soft and not stiff. If the cotton’s humidity increases,the temperature is high, the amount of water contained in the fiber will be completely evaporated dispersed, so that the fabric will maintain water balance, make people feel comfortable.
Warmth and anti-static properties
Because cotton fiber is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the thermal conductivity is very low, also because the cotton fiber has a porous, good elasticity, etc., it can accumulate a lot of air between the fibers, the air is also a poor conductor of heat and electricity, so cotton fiber textiles have good thermal resistance, anti-static properties, using of 100% cotton will make people feel warm and comfortable.
Resistance to Alkali
Cotton fibers has strong resistance to alkali, in alkaline solution, cotton fiber does not occur damage, this performance are good to wash for pollution after use, disinfection cleaning, meantime, it is good to dye, print and a variety of processing technology,then produce more new varieties of fabric.
