Cationic fabrics are all polyester fabrics. Generally, cationic yarns are used in the warp direction and ordinary polyester yarns are used in the weft direction. Sometimes in order to achieve a better hemp-like effect, polyester and cationic two-component fibers are blended. It is also used during dyeing. Using dyes, ordinary dyes for polyester yarns, and cationic dyes for cationic yarns, the fabric effect will have a two-color effect.
Features of cationic fabric:
1. One of the characteristics of cationic fabrics is the two-color effect. With this feature, some yarn-dyed two-color fabrics can be replaced, thereby reducing the cost of the fabric. This is the characteristic of cationic fabrics, but it also limits its characteristics. For multicolor yarn-dyed fabrics, cationic fabrics can only be replaced.
2. Cationic fabrics have bright colors and are very suitable for artificial fibers, but they are used for washing and light fastness of natural cellulose and protein fabrics.
3. The wear resistance of cationic fabrics is also very good. After adding some artificial fibers such as polyester and spandex, it has higher strength and better elasticity, and the wear resistance is second only to nylon.
4. Cationic fabrics have some chemical properties, such as corrosion resistance, dilute alkali resistance, bleach resistance, oxidant resistance, hydrocarbons, ketones, petroleum products and inorganic acids, as well as some physical properties, such as UV resistance.
Uses of cationic fabrics:
1. Since the cationic fabric has very good water absorption and its dyeing tank difference is relatively small, it is especially suitable for sports clothes, mainly made into sweatshirts, sweatpants, yoga clothes, etc., if the cationic fabric is thicker , Plus its good brushing effect, it can be used as warm clothing, warm pants and so on.
2. The cationic polyester/spandex jersey is also very environmentally friendly and can be used as an environmentally friendly polyester/spandex fabric
3. Because the cationic fabric feels soft and comfortable to wear, it has bright colors and similar effects to natural fabrics. It has good elasticity and hygienic properties and can be used to make high-end underwear, swimwear and sportswear fabrics.
