Functional fiber refers to the fiber with special health care function to the human body. There are 7 common types of common functional fiber: far infrared fiber, anti-ultraviolet fiber, electromagnetic shielding fiber, anion fiber, antibacterial fiber, fire-resistant fiber, medical stone fiber.
7 Types of Common Functional Fiber
Far Infrared Fiber
It refers to the fiber added with a far-infrared radiation agent, which can penetrate into the human body, causing human cells to resonate and produce a warm effect.
Anti Ultraviolet Fiber
With the increasingly thin atmosphere, the ultraviolet rays in sunlight are increasing, and the harm to human skin is also increasing. Therefore, it is more important to try to reduce the harm of ultraviolet rays to the human body. By adding anti-ultraviolet powder to the fiber, the fabric produced has an anti-ultraviolet function.
Electromagnetic Shielding Fiber
With the increasing application of mobile phones and various electronic products, people pay more and more attention to the harm of electromagnetic waves to the human body. The radiation power of various electronic equipment has increased by 30 times in recent years. When 30% of silver material is plated on the fiber, the fiber becomes a kind of fiber with excellent electrical conductivity.
The fabric can reflect 96.7% to 99.97% of electromagnetic waves, thus playing an electromagnetic shielding effect. The silver-plated fiber has the effect of reflecting heat, so the customized fitness clothing made of it is warm in winter and cool in summer. At the same time, it has a good antibacterial effect and can inhibit the proliferation of white fungus and mold.
The air around forests, hot springs, and waterfalls can stabilize people’s spirits due to the abundance of anion, which can reduce the feeling of fatigue and improve the immunity of the human body. If a small amount of rare earth ore containing radioactive material is crushed into extremely fine particles and mixed into the spinning solution of fiber, the fiber will have an anion effect. If the far-infrared radioactive ore is mixed at the same time, the fabric made of the anion and far-infrared fiber can activate more than 60% of the water in the human body.
In the process of fiber polymerization, antibacterial materials are introduced to make them evenly combined into the slices. Spinning long filaments on ordinary polyester spinning equipment has durability. The sterilization rate of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli is more than 99%. It can effectively inhibit bacterial reproduction and play the role of antibacterial and deodorization. In the past, it was applied in post-processing, but the antibacterial components were easy to fall off.
If you add fully dispersed and uniform fire retardant in fiber polymerization, or add copolymerized fire retardant in polymerization to prepare flame retardant chips, and then spin and weave, the L01 value will be more than 30%, which can completely achieve the flame retardant effect. That’s what fire-resistant fiber does.
Medical Stone Fiber
Medical stone fiber refers to a kind of fiber that has been specially treated by high-tech technology to make every trace element firmly and persistently adsorbed on fiber macromolecules. It can replenish the missing elements to the human body at any time, maintain the metabolism and physiological function of capillaries, promote and improve the microcirculation of the human body. It has not only the health care effects of antipruritic, bactericidal, and anti-inflammatory, deodorizing on the human body, but also the magical pharmacological effect of preventing cancer, syphilis, and other skin diseases.
