What Is Heating Fabric?
Now people’s requirements for clothing are not only good-looking, but also various functional characteristics, and a variety of new fabrics emerge in endlessly. Here, I’d like to introduce the heating fabric. We know from the literal meaning that this is a kind of fabric that can heat itself, but its function is far more than that.
Heating fiber is a new kind of material that can heat itself and warm the body. Its water absorption is much stronger than other kinds of fiber. It can be made into winter outdoor wear.
The traditional insulation is mainly to prevent the body from escaping the heat. It is a kind of fiber that can heat after moisture absorption, such as eks fiber, software fiber and so on. The function of the so-called self heating fiber in heating is limited. Because from the perspective of the law of conservation of matter, the heat energy can only be obtained from the skin breathing of human body. The heat of thermal underwear is about 3-5 degrees. In China’s textile industry, there is no defined standard for heating fibers, and most of the heating fibers are developed in Japan.
Features of Heating Fabric
Heat: It uses the moisture generated by the human skin to breathe to achieve the effect of heat. Because of this function, many custom underwear manufacturers use it to make heating undergarments.
Moisturizing: The middle part of the fiber contains static air, which produces a good temperature insulation effect. It not only reduces the weight of the fabric itself, but also has excellent thermal insulation properties for static air.
Moisture control: It utilizes the capillary phenomenon produced by the fine grooves on the fiber surface and the special spinning process, so that the excess water is quickly absorbed and dissipated through the effects of absorption, diffusion, and transmission.
Softness: It imitates the natural fibers in the natural ecology and gives countless breathable micropores on the surface of the fibers to achieve the softness and comfort of natural fibers.
Good pilling resistance: It uses special spinning technology to achieve much higher pilling resistance than similar yarns.
Advantages of Heating Fabric
The main advantage of heating fiber is its self-heating property. The fiber absorbs the moisture emitted by skin cells to achieve the purpose of heating. Its heating method is different from the heating method of traditional thermal clothing, and it is done by itself. In addition, the heating fiber also has good moisture retention. The characteristics of the fiber determine that this fabric will have good temperature insulation and moisturizing properties, and can moisturize the human skin to the greatest extent.
The heating fiber fabric also has moisture-control properties, which can quickly discharge and evaporate sweat in summer, keeping the skin feeling refreshed at all times. The fabric itself is soft and skin-friendly, and clothes made of it are extremely comfortable to wear. Moreover, the fabric has good pilling resistance, and it does not take much time to take care of it.
Disadvantages of Heating Fabric
Fabrics have to undergo complex processing, which invisibly increases the cost of labor and materials for fabric production, so the price will be relatively high. There are no major defects in other aspects of heating fibers.
