• The Importance of Dimensional Stability in Uniform Fabric Orders May 15, 2024
    Workwear and uniforms serve a vital role in various industries, ranging from hospitality to manufacturing, where durability and functionality are paramount. However, one often overlooked yet crucial aspect of these garments is dimensional stability in the fabric used. Dimensional stability refers to the ability of fabric to maintain its original shape and size despite repeated laundering and wear. Imagine a workforce clad in ill-fitting uniforms that have shrunk or stretched after a few washes. Such garments not only compromise the professional image of the organization but also affect the morale and confidence of the employees. Dimensionally stable fabrics maintain the integrity of the uniform's design, ensuring a consistent and polished appearance over time. Fabrics with excellent dimensional stability can prolong the lifespan of garments. Fabrics that resist shrinking or stretching maintain their shape and size, reducing the need for frequent replacements. To conclude, dimensional stability plays a vital role in ensuring professional appearance of workwear uniforms.   What factors influence shrinkage?   1.     Different raw materials in fabrics lead to different shrinkage rates. Generally, fibers with high moisture absorption will swell in water, increasing in diameter and shortening in length, resulting in higher shrinkage. For example, some viscose fibers have a water absorption rate of up to 13%, whereas synthetic fiber fabrics have poor moisture absorption and therefore have lower shrinkage rates. 2.     The density of the fabric also affects shrinkage. If the warp and weft densities are similar, the shrinkage rates in the warp and weft directions will also be similar. Fabrics with a higher warp density will shrink more in the warp direction, whereas fabrics with a higher weft density than warp density will shrink more in the weft direction. 3.     The thickness of the yarn in the fabric affects the shrinkage rate. Fabrics made with thicker yarns will have higher shrinkage rates, while those made with finer yarns will have lower shrinkage rates. 4.     Different production processes result in different shrinkage rates. Generally, during the weaving and dyeing processes, fibers undergo multiple stretches. Fabrics that are processed for longer durations and subjected to greater tension will have higher shrinkage rates, and vice versa.   Returning to our products, overall, the shrinkage rates of the workwear and uniform fabrics we produce are quite satisfactory. For instance, the shrinkage rate of our polyester wool blended fabrics and polyester cotton fabrics is typically controlled within ±2%. For nylon cotton blend fabrics, the shrinkage rate is controlled within ±3%, and for pure cotton fabrics, it is controlled within ±3.5%. Our technicians have thoroughly considered every aspect, including fabric composition, yarn configuration, and production processes, to achieve the best possible shrinkage performance.    
  • Workwear Fabric-Polyester Cotton Blend Fabric Apr 18, 2024
    The workwear fabric is specially designed for the needs of working clothes, usually it has three basic characteristics: economy, functionality, and comfort and durability. The most important feature of workwear fabric is its affordability. Many companies provide work clothes to employees after they join the company. Due to the issue of the number of employees, it is particularly important to choose cost-effective workwear fabric. Depending on the nature of the company, there are different types of workwear fabrics. For example, construction companies should choose workwear fabrics with high abrasion resistance, while electronics companies should choose anti-static workwear fabrics, etc. Because work clothes are the longest-worn clothes for employees, to ensure good wearing experience, fabric must be comfortable and durable.   When customizing work clothes, choosing the right fabric is very important. Here, I will introduce in detail the polyester cotton blend fabric produced by our company, which is also one of the most widely used fabrics for work clothes on the market.   Many consumers may suddenly feel a decrease in quality when they hear "polyester-cotton." In fact, the difference between polyester-cotton and pure cotton is not significant, and polyester-cotton work clothes also have their own advantages. Compared to pure cotton fabrics, firstly, polyester-cotton fabrics are more cost-effective. For large companies and factories, they are more economical. Secondly, the cotton content in polyester-cotton is relatively low, generally 33%-35% cotton and 65%-67% polyester. Because it combines cotton and polyester, it has the characteristics of cotton's sweat absorption, breathability, as well as polyester's abrasion resistance, low shrinkage, wrinkle resistance, and fast drying. Therefore, polyester-cotton fabrics usually have characteristics such as strength, abrasion resistance, softness, comfort, moisture absorption, and breathability, and are loved by people.   For some work clothes with special functional requirements, our polyester cotton blend fabric can also undergo special processing. For example, adding conductive wire during spinning and weaving to give it anti-static function. There has always been a great demand in the market for anti-static fabrics, whether it is in biopharmaceuticals, electrical protection, or petrochemical plants, employees will be uniformly equipped with anti-static work clothes. The main function of anti-static work clothes is to prevent static electricity, followed by abrasion resistance, dirt resistance, and convenience in operation. In addition to anti-static properties, we also offer special treatments such as waterproofing, oil resistance, antibacterial properties, flame retardancy, etc., to meet the needs of different industries for workwear fabrics. We have many years of professional experience in polyester-cotton workwear fabrics and can configure and customize different specifications according to customer requirements to ensure that customers purchase truly suitable fabrics.
