Understanding people Before talking about silk fabrics, let me first summarize what rayon is. Rayon, also called rayon, is a filament form of viscose fiber. It is smooth, beautiful and has a silky texture. It is made from plant straws such as reeds through dissolution, refinement and denaturation. Therefore, rayon fabric is a green textile, ecological, environmentally friendly and safe. This is also the basic functional characteristics and advantages of rayon fabric.
Rayon and artificial cotton should be said to have the same origin, but Rayon has a filament structure, while rayon has a short fiber structure, so when tested for ingredients, whether it is rayon fabric, rayon fabric or rayon-rayon intertwined fabric, the result is the same raw material. Therefore, many people cannot distinguish between rayon and artificial cotton, but strictly speaking, they cannot be confused. The English expression for rayon is VISCOSE, and the English expression for rayon is RAYON. Friends who do foreign trade must distinguish clearly. Strictly speaking, rayon fabrics are fabrics made of pure rayon. However, rayon and rayon interwoven fabrics, as well as rayon fabrics, cannot be called rayon fabrics.
Actually, it is not that complicated to distinguish between rayon and artificial cotton. It is clear just by looking at the appearance. Rayon is relatively bright. When making fabrics, many rayon fibers are combined together to form fiber bundles. The fibers are relatively long and do not have fine short fibers and hairiness like artificial cotton yarns. Artificial cotton is short fiber, which can be made by twisting and spinning. Its appearance is very similar to cotton yarn, so it is called artificial cotton. After loose twisting, the short fibers and hairiness are obvious, and the color is lighter. The distinctive feature of rayon fabric is that it is smooth, bright and has a strong silk texture, which is more suitable for enthusiastic, lively and energetic styles. Rayon fabric is also very breathable and sweat-wicking, is light, comfortable, cool and skin-friendly, and is environmentally friendly, safe and high-end, so it is very suitable for spring and summer fashion.
Of course, rayon fabric is not without its shortcomings. Because it is too smooth, It cannot be made particularly soft, otherwise the splitting and slippage will not be up to standard. In addition, rayon fabrics are generally light and light, which is good for spring and summer clothing, but lacks fullness and weight and is not suitable for autumn and winter clothing. Rayon fabrics have great development prospects. They have the texture, functions and performance of real silk, so they will move towards imitation silk in the future. This demand trend for rayon fabrics should be grasped by both those who make fabrics and those who make clothing. There are endless business opportunities in rayon fabrics, don’t miss it.
