What are cationic fabrics and their characteristics and uses?


What are cationic fabrics and their characteristics and uses?

Cationic fabrics are all polyester fabrics. Generally, cationic yarns are used in the warp direction and ordinary polyester yarns are used in the weft direction. Sometimes in order to achieve a better hemp-like effect, polyester and cationic two-component fibers are blended. It is also used during dyeing. Using dyes, ordinary dyes for polyester yarns, and cationic dyes for cationic yarns, the fabric effect will have a two-color effect.

working principle

The material warp yarn is polyester DTY100D+cationic DTY100D, the weft yarn is interwoven with polyester DTY100D, and the warp direction is grouped by the two yarns (due to different raw material components when dyeing, the coloring depth is different, and it is easy to be straight after dyeing). The warp and weft use 1 /1 The organization structure of the strips is interwoven on the water jet loom. The grey cloth is relaxed-refined-alkali reduction-dyeing (disperse dyes, cationic dyes)-soft and finalized. The fabric has the characteristics of soft hand feeling, not easy to fade, anti-wrinkle and abrasion resistance, etc.

Features of cationic fabric

1. One of the characteristics of cationic fabrics is the two-color effect. With this feature, some yarn-dyed two-color fabrics can be replaced, thereby reducing the cost of the fabric. This is the characteristic of cationic fabrics, but it also limits its characteristics. For multi-color yarn-dyed fabrics, cationic fabrics can only be replaced.

2. Cationic fabrics have bright colors and are very suitable for artificial fibers, but they are used for washing and light fastness of natural cellulose and protein fabrics.

3. The abrasion resistance of cationic fabrics is also very good. After adding some artificial fibers such as polyester and spandex, it has higher strength and better elasticity, and its abrasion resistance is second only to nylon.

4. Cationic fabrics have some chemical properties, such as corrosion resistance, dilute alkali resistance, bleach resistance, oxidizers, hydrocarbons, ketones, petroleum products and inorganic acids, as well as some physical properties, such as UV resistance.

The use of cationic fabrics

1. Since the cationic fabric has very good water absorption and its dyeing tank difference is relatively small, it is especially suitable for sports clothes. It is mainly made into sweatshirts, sweatpants, yoga clothes, etc., if the cationic fabric is thicker , Coupled with its good brushing effect, it can be used as warm clothing, warm pants and so on.

2. The cationic polyester-spandex jersey is also very environmentally friendly and can be used as an environmentally-friendly polyester-spandex fabric

3. Because the cationic fabric feels soft and comfortable to wear, it has bright colors and has a similar effect to natural fabrics. It has good elasticity and hygienic properties. It can be used to make high-end underwear, swimwear and sportswear fabrics.
