What are the characteristics of cotton fabrics


Pure cotton fabric has good hygroscopicity. Under normal circumstances, fibers can absorb moisture into the surrounding atmosphere. Its moisture content is 8-10%, so it touches human skin and makes people feel soft but not stiff. If the humidity of the cotton cloth increases and the surrounding temperature is high, all the water content in the fibers will evaporate and disperse, so that the fabric maintains a water balance and makes people feel comfortable.


Because cotton fabric is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the thermal conductivity is extremely low, and because of its porosity and high elasticity, cotton fabric can store a large amount of air between fibers, and air is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, so Pure cotton fabric textiles have good moisture retention, and wearing cotton clothing makes people feel warm.

3.Heat resistance

Pure cotton fabrics have good heat resistance. When the temperature is below 110 ° C, it will only cause the water on the fabric to evaporate and will not damage the fibers. Therefore, cotton fabrics have no effect on the fabric at normal temperature, wearing, washing, printing and dyeing. Improved washing and wearing resistance of pure cotton fabrics.   

4.Alkali resistance

Pure cotton fabrics have a high resistance to alkali. Pure cotton fabrics do not destroy fibers in alkaline solutions. This performance is conducive to washing and disinfection of impurities after taking, and it can also dye cotton fabrics, Printing and various processes to produce more new varieties of cotton weaving.

5. Hygiene

Pure cotton fabrics are natural fibers, the main component of which is cellulose, and a small amount of waxy substances and nitrogen and pectin. Pure cotton fabrics have been inspected and practiced in various aspects. The fabrics have no irritation and no negative effects when in contact with the skin. Long-wearing is beneficial to the human body and has good hygienic properties.
