People's taste for clothes is getting higher and higher. And there are more and more kinds of fabrics for clothes, like nylon, fiber, silk, and polyester. All kinds of fabrics are like springing up to compete with each other, making our eyes dazzled. The bamboo fiber fabric is the best among many fabrics. This fabric uses natural bamboo as the raw material and has unique properties. Let's take a look at the details of bamboo fabric.

What Is Bamboo Fabric?
What Is Bamboo Fabric?

Bamboo fabric is a cellulose fiber extracted from grown bamboo. The fibers of the bamboo plant are thicker and can be made into very durable fabrics. These fibers are very absorbent and so do not need to be colored with many dyes. A new type of fabric made by weaving. With: smooth and soft warm, antibacterial, moisture absorption and breathable, green, anti-UV, natural health care, comfortable and beautiful characteristics. Experts point out that bamboo fiber is a real sense of the natural environmental protection of green fiber.

How Is Bamboo Fabric Made?

Bamboo is used is familiar to everyone, but applied to the field of clothing in recent years. The fiber processed from bamboo is called bamboo fiber. And bamboo fiber is divided into two categories.

Natural type: Bamboo raw fiber is a natural bamboo fabric made by a combination of physical and chemical methods.

Natural bamboo fiber production process.

Natural Bamboo Fiber Production Process.

The raw material is 3-4 years old strong and sturdy green bamboo;

Bamboo sheets are made by cutting off the bamboo, removing the joints, and cutting the bamboo into sheets. The length of the sheets is determined according to the needs;

Boil the bamboo sheets, put the bamboo sheets into boiling water, and boil them;

Crushing, the bamboo sheets are taken out and crushed and hammered into fine shreds;

Steaming, the bamboo shreds are then steamed in a pressure cooker to remove some of the pectin, hemicellulose, and lignin;

Biological enzyme degumming, while decomposing lignin, hemicellulose, and pectin, a certain amount of enzyme can also be added to the treatment solution to decompose cellulose. To get finer raw bamboo fibers;

Combing fiber, the enzymatic decomposition of bamboo fiber cleaning, bleaching, oiling, softening, loosening, and combing to get the original bamboo fiber for textiles;

The final fiber is obtained for textile use.

Chemical: Chemical bamboo fiber includes bamboo pulp fiber and bamboo charcoal fiber.

Bamboo Pulp Fiber Production Process.

Bamboo pulp fiber is bamboo chips into pulp. And then the pulp into a pulp and then wet spinning into the fiber. Its production and processing process are like viscose.

Bamboo Charcoal Fiber Production Process.

Bamboo charring, high-temperature charring of alpine bamboo that is more than 5 years old. With continuous processing.

Bamboo charcoal activation, after activation treatment of bamboo charcoal. Its tissue bonding density increases and becomes hard. The charcoal rate can reach more than 85%.

Crushing bamboo charcoal, the activated bamboo charcoal is crushed. And made into sub-nanometer bamboo charcoal powder.

Uniform dispersion, mixing the bamboo charcoal powder into the raw pulp such as polyester or viscose. And stirring to make it dispersed in the raw pulp.

In spinning, the filament containing bamboo charcoal powder is extracted from the raw pulp through the drawing equipment. And it can also be cut into cotton or wool type staple fiber, medium-length fiber, etc. according to the need. So get bamboo charcoal fiber.

How Is Bamboo Fabric Used?

Knitted and woven fabrics and garments made of bamboo fiber yarn as raw material. They have a unique style that is different from cotton and wood-type cellulose fiber. With high strength, abrasion resistance, moisture absorption, drapability, and soft hand feeling, cool and comfortable to wear.

Bamboo yarn for clothing fabrics, mats, bed sheets, curtains, scarves, etc... Such as the use of blended with the vinyl method can produce light clothing fabrics.

Blended with cotton, wool, hemp, silk, and chemical fibers, used for weaving or knitting. Production of various specifications of woven fabrics and knitted fabrics. Woven fabrics can be used to make curtains, jackets, casual wear, suits, shirts, bed sheets and towels, bath towels, etc...

What are the functions of Bamboo fabric?

Antibacterial and Antibacterial Function.

The bacteria on bamboo fiber products are killed about 75% after 24 hours.

Deodorization and Adsorption Function.

It can adsorb formaldehyde, benzene, toluene, ammonia, and other harmful substances in the air and drop a bad odor.

Moisture-Absorbing and Moisture-Removing Function.

Because the bamboo fiber fabric is filled with many irregular oval-shaped holes, so that it can absorb and evaporate moisture well, which also ensures its dryness.

Super Anti-Uv Function.

The UV penetration rate of cotton is 25%, and the UV penetration rate of bamboo fiber is less than 0.6%. Its anti-UV ability is 41.7 times of cotton.

Super Health Function.

Why Is Bamboo Fiber So Popular?

Cooling Effect

The hot and sticky summer always makes people go to seek cool goodies. And bamboo fiber happens to bring its own cooling effect.

Bamboo fiber is hollow, with fiber gaps such as capillaries all over the fiber surface. So it can absorb a lot of water and evaporate it, 36 ℃, 100% relative humidity environment. Bamboo fiber has a moisture return rate of up to 45% and is 3.5 times more breathable than cotton. So absorbing moisture and drying, with its own cooling effect.

Not Easy to Mold, Sticky, Smelly

The most worrying thing in summer is a large amount of sweat adhering to the bedding, breeding bacteria so that the bedding is sticky, moldy, and odor.

The bamboo fiber besides good moisture absorption and breathability keeps the fabric dry. Containing the "bamboo Kun" component, also has natural antibacterial, antibacterial properties. It can avoid the proliferation of bacteria, so that bamboo fiber fabrics even in the warm and humid summer is not moldy, not smelly, and not sticky.

Comfortable and Soft

Bamboo fiber surface without curl, smooth surface, the woven fabric is meticulous and smooth, light and comfortable, and skin contact can make people have the feeling of being cared for.

Green Health and Environmental Protection

Compared with other renewable cellulose fiber raw materials such as wood, the bamboo growth cycle is shorter, 2-3 years can be used, for resource constraints have a certain alleviating effect. And the fiber can be degraded in the environment, and will not produce pollution to the environment.

How To Care For Bambo Fabrics?
