Characteristics and varieties of nylon fiber fabrics
(1) Characteristics of nylon fiber fabric
Nylon fabric is known for its excellent wear resistance. It is not only the best choice for down jackets and mountaineering clothing, but is often blended or interwoven with other fibers to improve the fabric’s durability. Strength and fastness. The characteristics of nylon fiber fabrics can be summarized as follows:
1. The wear resistance of nylon fabric ranks first among all types of fabrics, many times higher than other fiber fabrics of similar products, so it has excellent durability.
2. The hygroscopicity of nylon fabric is better than that of synthetic fiber fabrics, so clothing made of nylon is more comfortable to wear than polyester clothing.
3. Nylon fabric is a light fabric and is only listed after polypropylene and acrylic fabrics among synthetic fabrics. Therefore, it is suitable for making mountaineering clothing, winter clothing, etc.
4. Nylon fabric has excellent elasticity and elastic recovery, but it is easy to deform under small external force, so the fabric is easy to wrinkle during wearing.
5. Nylon fabric has poor heat resistance and light resistance. During wearing and use, you must pay attention to the washing and maintenance conditions to avoid damaging the fabric.
(2) Varieties of nylon fiber fabrics
Nylon fiber fabrics can be divided into three categories: pure spinning, blended spinning and interwoven fabrics. Each category contains many varieties. The following is a brief summary: introduce.
1. Nylon pure textile fabrics are various fabrics woven with nylon filaments as raw materials, such as nylon taffeta, nylon crepe, etc. Because it is woven with nylon filament, it has the characteristics of smooth feel, strong durability and affordable price. It also has the disadvantage that the fabric is easy to wrinkle and difficult to recover. Nylon taffeta is mostly used to make lightweight clothing, down jackets or raincoat fabrics, while nylon crepe is suitable for summer dresses, spring and autumn shirts, etc.
2. Nylon blends and interwoven fabrics are fabrics obtained by blending or interweaving nylon filaments or short fibers with other fibers, which have the characteristics and advantages of each fiber. For example, viscose/nylon gabardine is made of 15% nylon and 85% viscose blended yarn. The warp density is twice as much as the weft density. The fabric body is thick, tough and durable. The disadvantage is that it has poor elasticity and is easy to wear. Wrinkles, reduced wet strength, and prone to sagging when worn. In addition, there are also varieties such as sticky/brocade Fanliding, sticky/brocade/wool tweed, etc., which are some commonly used fabrics.
