Characteristics Of Modal Fabrics

Modal fabrics has very good softness and hygroscopicity with poor fabric stiffness, which is now mostly used in underwear production. Modal has a silvery luster, excellent colorability and bright color after dyeing, suitable for making coats. As a result, Modal has become increasingly used as materials for garments and their decorative fabrics.
  • Its raw material comes from natural woods, which can be naturally degraded after use.
  • Its fineness is 1 dtex, while the fineness of the cotton fiber is 1.5-2.5 Tex and the silk fineness is 1.3 dtex.
  • Modal fiber is soft and bright and feels especially smooth. Its draping is better than that of the existing cotton, polyester and man-made cotton with pure silk luster and touch. It's a natural silk fabric.
  • The Modal fiber has the strength and toughness of synthetic fibers, with its dry strength of 3.56 cn/ Tex and its wet strength of 2.56 cn/ Tex. Its strength is higher than that of pure cotton and polyester cotton, reducing the breakage in processing.
  • Its moisture absorption capacity is 50% higher than that of cotton fiber, which keeps the Modal fiber fabric dry with good air penetrability. It is the ideal fabric for human body and healthy clothing products, beneficial to the physiological circulation and health.
  • Compared with cotton fibers, the Modal fiber has good shaping and dimensional stability so that it has natural anti-wrinkle and non-ironing properties, making it more convenient and natural to wear.
  • Its dyeing property is good and after many times of washing, it remains new and bright with good moisture absorption and color durability. Compared with pure cotton, it is more comfortable to wear and does not have the disadvantage like pure cotton clothes of fading easily and turning yellow. Therefore, the fabric is bright in colors and stable in texture. After 25 times of washing, the cotton fabric feels harder, while Modal fiber fabric is the opposite. The more washing times there are, the more beautiful it will be.
Modal fabrics is close to the polyester in strength (35cn/Tex). Its wet strength is slightly lower than that of the cotton with softness, smoothness and the silk touch. The dry extension of the fibers is between that of cotton and viscose. Its wet elongation is similar to that of cotton but less than that of viscose. Its shrinkage rate is low and its good moisture absorption capacity is 50 % higher than that of cotton with extremely fast moisture absorption capacity. Its dyeing property and pigment absorption rate of Modal fiber are better than those of combed cotton and carded cotton. It has a high absorption rate and bright colors after dyeing with good air permeability.
