1.The raw material of Modal fiber comes from natural wood, which can degrade naturally after use.
2.The fineness of modal fibre is 1dtex, while that of cotton is 1.5-2.5 dtex and that of silk is 1.3dtex.
3.Modal fiber is soft, bright, clean and colorful. Its texture is particularly slippery and the surface of the cloth is shiny. Its drape is better than the existing cotton, polyester, and human cotton, and it has the luster and touch like silk. It is a natural mercerized fabric.
4.Modal fiber has the strength and toughness of synthetic fiber, with dry strength of 35.6cn and wet strength of 25.6cn. Its strength is higher than pure cotton and terylene.
5.The moisture absorption capacity of Modal fiber is 50% higher than that of cotton fiber, which makes Modal fiber fabric keep dry and breathable. Therefore, modal fabric is the ideal close-fitting fabric, suitable for health clothing, conducive to human physiological circulation and health.
6.Compared with cotton fiber, modal fiber has good shape and size stability, which makes the fabric possess natural wrinkle resistance and thermal resistance, making it more convenient and natural to wear.
7.Compared with pure cotton, Modal fiber has better dyeing performance and remains fresh after many times of washing. Besides, it absorbs moisture thoroughly, has good color fastness and is more comfortable to wear. It does not have the defects of cotton garments that fade easily and turn yellow. Therefore, the fabric is brightly colored and stable in wear performance. After 25 times of washing with the cotton fabric, the feel of the cotton fabric will be harder and harder. Modal fabrics, on the other hand, are softer and brighter as they are washed.
The dry strength of Modal is close to the strength of polyester (35cn/tec), and the wet strength is slightly lower than the cotton. It gives people a soft,smooth, and silky feeling. The wet elongation of the modal fiber is small, and the dry elongation of the modal fiber is between cotton and viscose. The shrinkage rate is low, and its moisture absorption capacity is 50% higher than cotton, and the moisture absorption speed is very fast. The dyeing characteristics of modal fiber: its absorption speed of pigment is faster than that of fine combed cotton and general combed cotton. The absorption rate is high, and the color is bright after staining. Its air permeability is also very good.
