Cotton bedding is now becoming more and more people's choice, so have you ever understood the advantages and disadvantages of cotton material?
1 Moisture absorption
Cotton fiber has good moisture absorption, under normal circumstances, the fiber can absorb the moisture in the surrounding atmosphere, its water content of 8-10%, so it touches human skin so that people feel soft and not stiff. If the cotton humidity increases, the surrounding temperature rises, the water contained in the fiber will all evaporate and dissipate so that the fabric maintains a balanced state of water content so that people feel comfortable.
2 Heat retention
Because cotton fiber is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the heat transfer coefficient is very low, and because cotton fiber itself has the advantages of porosity, high elasticity, between the fibers can accumulate a large amount of air, air and is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, so, cotton fiber textiles have good heat preservation, wearing cotton fabric clothing to make people feel warm.
3 Heat resistance
Cotton fabrics have good heat resistance, below 110 degrees Celsius, will only cause the evaporation of water on the fabric, will not damage the fiber, so cotton fabrics at room temperature when wearing and using, fabric washing printing and dyeing are not affected, thus improving the cotton fabrics washability and wear resistance taking performance.
4 Alkali resistance
Cotton fiber alkali resistance, the cotton fiber in alkali solution does not occur fiber damage, its performance is conducive to taking after the washing pollution, disinfection and removal, but also cotton textiles for dyeing, printing and other processes, the production of more new varieties of cotton fabrics.
Cotton fiber is a natural fiber, its main component is cellulose, containing a small amount of wax-like substances and nitrogenous substances, and pectin. Cotton fabric by a number of checks and practice, woven fabrics and skin contact without any stimulation, no side effects, long wear on the human body is beneficial and harmless, good health performance.
The disadvantages of pure cotton fabric are also very obvious.
1 easy to wrinkle, and wrinkled after the more difficult to smooth out.
2 easy to shrink, cotton clothing shrinkage rate is 2% to 5%, after special processing, or washing treatment exception.
3 easy to sticky lint.
4 when the concentrated sulfuric acid stained cotton, cotton is burned into holes, such as vinegar accidentally get on the clothes, should be promptly cleaned to avoid acetic acid on the clothes to produce fatal damage.
