Fibers used for Specialty Textiles

The most common materials for specialty textiles include natural fibers like cotton, wool, and sisal, and synthetic materials like polyester, polypropylene, and nylon. Each fiber has special properties that make it suitable for specific applications.

  • Cotton is a natural fiber that is soft, durable, and breathable. It is often used in bedding, clothing, and other household items.
  • Wool is a natural fiber that is strong and resistant to wrinkles. It is often used in clothing,
    blankets, and carpets.
  • Silk is a light, smooth, natural fiber. It is often used in clothing, bedding, and curtains.
  • Polyester is a synthetic fiber that is strong and resistant to wrinkles. It is often used in clothing, upholstery, and carpets.
  • Nylon is a synthetic fiber that is strong and resistant to wrinkles. It is often used in clothing, upholstery, and carpets.
  • Acrylic is a synthetic fiber that is similar to wool. It is often used in textile applications where it can provide thermal insulation, and comfort.

How to Select the Right Textile for Your Application

When choosing a specialty textile for a specific application, it is vital to consider the properties of the fiber and the textile construction. Some factors to consider include:

  • Strength: The fabric should be strong enough to withstand the stresses of the application.
  • Durability: The fabric should withstand repeated use and exposure to anticipated conditions.
  • Porosity: The fabric should allow gases and fluids to circulate as required yet impede the flow of unwanted contaminants.
  • Elasticity: The fabric should not wrinkle easily to retain its shape and appearance over time.
  • Appearance: The fabric should have a surface texture and feel appropriate to the application.
