In today's era of full name sports, sports are closely related to our lives, and custom sportswear is one of our must-have items. However, everyone did not have a deep understanding of sportswear. Today Kawasaki takes everyone to analyze the fabric material of the sport. Maybe everyone thinks that cotton is good, it absorbs sweat very well, and it is very comfortable to wear. However, the cotton material is very sweat-absorbent, and the sweat is emitted during exercise, so it is easy to remain on the clothes. After a long time, the clothes will smell like sweat and people will not be able to wear them.
Later, in order to meet the needs of everyone's sports, the professional sports fabrics, functional fabrics and technical fabrics that followed were born. After investigation, the use of chemical fiber instead of natural fiber in sportswear has gradually become a trend. At present, there are mainly high-tech fibers in sportswear:
1, polyamide nylon
It has far better performance than the early nylon, and solves the disadvantages of poor gas permeability and non-wear resistance. It can quickly absorb sweat from the body and volatilize from its surface.
2, all kinds of functional fibers
This new fiber is lighter and softer than traditional chemical fibers.
3, PTFE waterproof and temperature-permeable laminated fabric
This kind of fabric can breathe like human skin, and it will remove excess water vapor from the outside, and isolate the outside from rain and snow. The secret is that there are as many as 700 million micropores per square centimeter.
4, Coolmax fiber
This type of fiber is becoming a big selling point on the market. The cross-section of the fiber is a unique flat cross shape, forming a four-slot design that can more quickly evaporate the sweat, known as the fiber with advanced cooling system. It is worth mentioning that the Chinese table tennis team won gold in Sydney and wore clothes made of Coolmax fiber.
5, silicone resin
Everyone is not stranger, such as "shark skin swimsuit", "fast skin" sportswear, the main body of which is composed of silicone resin film.
It is also a material we are very familiar with. Its use has long exceeded the scope of sportswear, but it is an indispensable material in sportswear. This kind of artificial elastic fiber, its anti-pull characteristics and the smoothness after woven into clothes, the closeness to the body, and the great stretchability are all ideal sports elements. The tights and sportswear worn by athletes They all contain Lycra ingredients, and because of the use of Lycra, some sportswear companies have proposed the concept of "energy maintenance."
