custom.sg - Microfibers are widely known as a material for making cleaning stuff. Before we go too far, let’s check what it is made from. Microfibers, some call it or microfibre, are synthetic fibres which have a diameter less than ten micrometres.
For your information, it is smaller than the diameter of a strand of silk. It’s about 1/5 of a human hair. Most of the microfibers are made from polyesters, polyamides (e.g., nylon, Kevlar, Nomex, trogamide), or a mix of polyester, polyamide, and polypropylene.
Microfiber is popular for making mats, knits, and weaves for clothing, industrial filters, and cleaning products. The different material for microfibers makes factory can choose the shape, size, and perfect combinations of specialized fibre.
The blend of certain fibres can determine specific characteristics, including smoothness, durability, absorption, water impermeability or resistance, electrostatics, and filtering capacities. When we use microfiber, we will obtain some benefits:
If you are an eco-friendly material lover, we have good news for you. In producing synthetic fibres, they use no pesticide in the process, if we compare it to cotton production processes.
When the products are made of polypropylene thread, then it is dope-dyed. It means no water is used for colouring.
Unlike cotton, where thousands of litres of water are used to colour them, which make it becomes contaminated. As a last note, microfiber can be recyclable if it is made from polypropylene.
