What is chemical fiber?

Release time:


Chemical fibers are textile fibers made from natural or synthetic polymer compounds as raw materials through processes such as preparing spinning solution, spinning, and post-processing. The length, thickness, whiteness, and luster of fibers can be adjusted during the production process. It has advantages such as light resistance, wear resistance, easy washing and drying, no mold, and no insect infestation. Widely used in the manufacturing of clothing, textiles, filter fabrics, conveyor belts, hoses, ropes, fishing nets, electrical insulation wires, suture wires, tire cord fabrics, and parachutes. Usually, polymer compounds can be made into solutions or melts, pressed out of spinneret holes, and then solidified into fibers. The product can be continuous filaments, short fibers cut into lengths, or uncut bundles. For the trade names of chemical fibers, China temporarily stipulates that synthetic staple fibers are uniformly named as "nylon" (such as nylon and polyester), cellulose staple fibers are uniformly named as "fiber" (such as viscose) fibers and Cuprammonium rayon fibers, and filament fibers are added with the word "silk" at the end, or "fiber" or "fiber" is changed to "silk".

Characteristics of Chemical Fiber Textile

1. Durable and easy to use, because chemical fiber textiles are polymer textiles, they have a high density and relative fastness, which is often referred to as very sturdy.

2. Easy to take care of, iron without wrinkles, and even after being rolled into a ball, chemical fiber textiles rarely fold or even have no wrinkles.

3. The production cost is low, and it can be industrialized and produced on a large scale. The price of raw materials is relatively lower than that of natural fibers.

4. Simulation, imitating natural fibers, has good moisture absorption and comfort, even better than the comfort of certain natural fibers.

5. More personalized, modern textile processing technology enables chemical fiber textiles to have characteristics such as fire resistance, high temperature resistance, radiation resistance, wear resistance, and high elasticity.
