What are the characteristics of bamboo fiber fabrics
1. Absorb sweat and breathe
The cross-section of the bamboo fiber is uneven and deformed, and it is full of elliptical pores, which is highly hollow and has a strong capillary effect, which can absorb and evaporate water in an instant.
2. Antibacterial and antibacterial
The same number of bacteria can be observed under a microscope. The bacteria can multiply in cotton and wood fiber products, while the bacteria on bamboo fiber products will be killed about 75% after 24 hours.
3. Deodorizing adsorption
The special ultra-fine pore structure inside the bamboo fiber makes it have a strong adsorption capacity, which can adsorb formaldehyde, benzene, toluene, ammonia and other harmful substances in the air, and eliminate bad odors.
The UV penetration rate of cotton is about 25%, and the UV penetration rate of bamboo fiber is less than 0.6%. Its UV resistance is about 41.7 times that of cotton. Therefore, bamboo fiber fabrics have good UV resistance.
5. Health care
Bamboo fiber is rich in pectin, bamboo honey, tyrosine, vitamin E, SE, GE and other anti-cancer and anti-aging trace elements, which have certain health care and body strengthening effects.
6. Comfortable and beautiful
The fineness of the bamboo fiber unit is fine, the whiteness is good, the color after dyeing is elegant, bright and true, not easy to fade, bright luster, plump and scratchy, elegant and elegant, good drape, and has a natural and simple elegant texture.
Disadvantages of bamboo fiber fabric
1. Short service life
Its service life is very short. If it is not replaced for a long time, the performance of bamboo fiber fabric products will be significantly reduced, and it is very uncomfortable to use. Therefore, in daily use, we should avoid vigorously twisting and pulling bamboo fiber products. Soak them, do not expose them to the sun for a long time, and do not use softeners during washing. Pay attention to replace them after using them for a period of time. By doing this, we can prolong the service life of bamboo fiber fabrics.
2. Long processing process
In terms of processing technology, the production process of recycled bamboo fiber is too long, and it also has varying degrees of impact on environmental pollution. Environmental protection has become a major drawback of the development of recycled bamboo fiber, and the damage to the characteristics of bamboo raw materials by the processing process cannot be ignored. . Therefore, the processing technology of regenerated bamboo fiber also needs to be improved.
3. Complex processing technology
There are two main difficulties in the production of natural bamboo fiber. One is that the bamboo fiber is too short to be spun. The other is the high content of lignin in the fiber, which is difficult to remove. The conventional chemical degumming method has a long process flow, a long cycle, consumes a lot of energy, and has serious equipment corrosion, serious environmental pollution, and the quality of processed fibers is not stable enough. The biological degumming method is also very difficult. The bamboo itself has a compact structure and a high density, and there is a large amount of air in the cell tissue. The immersion liquid is difficult to penetrate, which will inevitably extend the degumming time, and the bamboo itself has a variety of antibacterial substances. However, the selection of strains also has certain difficulties, so further research and exploration are needed.
4. Difficulty in weaving
In the process of weaving, bamboo fiber is easy to be brittle due to the characteristics of easy moisture absorption, large wet elongation and large plastic deformation. The 100% bamboo fiber used in garment manufacturing has not yet solved the problem of water shrinkage, and the hand feel and drape need to be improved.
5. Difficulty in identification
Fiber identification and detection technology is relatively lagging, and there is still no effective method to distinguish between bamboo fiber and hemp fiber. Therefore, there is no shortage of hemp instead of bamboo in the market.
