Advantages: Cotton fabrics are comfortable to wear, breathable, warm, moisture, heat, alkali, and hygiene
1 Hygroscopicity: Cotton fiber has good hygroscopicity. Under normal conditions, the fiber can absorb moisture in the surrounding atmosphere. Its moisture content is 8-10%, so it contacts human skin and makes people feel soft. Not stiff. If the humidity of the cotton cloth is increased and the ambient temperature is high, the water content in the fibers will evaporate completely, keeping the fabric in a state of water balance and making people feel comfortable.
2 Moisturizing: As the cotton fiber is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the heat transfer coefficient is very low, and because the cotton fiber itself has a porous, high elasticity, a large amount of air can accumulate between the fibers. The air is also a poor conductor of heat and electricity. Therefore, pure cotton fiber textiles have good moisture retention and people feel warm when wearing cotton fabrics.
3 Heat resistance: Pure cotton fabric has good heat resistance. When the temperature is lower than 110°C, it will only cause moisture on the fabric to evaporate and will not damage the fiber. Therefore, the pure cotton fabric is worn at room temperature, and the washing and printing are not applicable to the fabric. The impact, thereby improving the washability and wear resistance of pure cotton fabrics.
4 Alkali resistance: cotton fiber resistance to alkali is relatively large, cotton fiber in alkaline solution, the fiber does not damage phenomenon, this performance is conducive to the washing and disinfection of clothing, but also conducive to the dyeing and printing of pure cotton textiles And a variety of processing techniques to produce more cotton new varieties and clothing styles.
5 Hygiene: Cotton fiber is a natural fiber whose main component is cellulose. The cotton fabric has been inspected and practiced in many aspects. The fabric is in contact with the skin without any irritation or negative effects. The long-term wear is beneficial to the human body and harmless, and the sanitary performance is good.
Disadvantages: cotton fabric is easy to wrinkle, shrink, easily deformed
