Acrylic fiber is a synthetic fiber like polyester and nylon. It is a common material in the wool spinning industry, especially in the production of artificial wool. Because of the high price of wool fabrics, not everyone can consume it, and the artificial wool made of acrylic fiber is different. The characteristics are very similar to wool, so artificial wool made of acrylic fiber can replace wool to a certain extent. In order to let everyone have a better understanding of acrylic fiber, this article will introduce acrylic fiber fabrics around the advantages and disadvantages of acrylic fiber.
Advantages of acrylic fabric:
Acrylic fabric has similar properties to wool, and its elasticity even exceeds that of wool, and it has a better resilience rate when it is pulled up by a large margin.
Acrylic fiber is fluffy, soft to the touch, and has good warmth retention. It has the title of "synthetic wool".
High strength is also one of the advantages of acrylic fabric. The strength of acrylic fiber is maintained between 22.1～48.5cN/dtex, which has exceeded the strength of wool.
Acrylic fabrics are exposed to the sun for a long time without any problems. The structure of the fiber determines the characteristics of acrylic. The data shows that the strength of acrylic fabrics decreases by 20% after being exposed to the sun for one year, so the lifespan of acrylic fabrics is generally comparable. long.
In addition to light fastness, acrylic is also resistant to acid and oxidation, which makes it easier to maintain clothes.
Disadvantages of acrylic fabric:
The shortcomings of acrylic fiber fabrics are also obvious. They are acid-resistant but not alkali-resistant, so you can't use alkaline detergent when washing, and acrylic fiber has poor moisture absorption and poor comfort after wearing.
Easy to pilling is also a major disadvantage of acrylic fabrics, which will seriously affect the appearance of the fabric after pilling.
The air permeability of chemical fiber fabrics is not good, and acrylic fiber is no exception. Clothes made of it will be boring after wearing. Acrylic fiber is not alkali resistant. Therefore, it is recommended to use a neutral detergent when washing, followed by acrylic fabrics. Pilling is prone to occur, and it is best to avoid frequent friction during daily wear.
