WHAT IS AN ACRYLIC FIBER?

Fibers that contain a minimum of 85% acrylonitrile in their chemical structure are called “acrylic fibers”. It is a synthetic fibre that is very similar to wool in character.Acrylic fiber is produced with two different systems: wet spinning and dry spinning.

Properties

  • Easy to wash and quick to dry
  • They are not attacked by mildew or insects
  • They have good resistance to dry cleaning detergents
  • Excellent colour stability and bright colour dyeing ability
  • Very resistant to sunligh
  • Light, soft and warm
  • Pleasant to the touch

WHAT IS 100% SOLUTION DYED?

The method you use to dye the acrylic fiber will directly affect the duration of the color.100% solution dyed maintains the longest lasting color because of the specific process used to dye the fibers.

In the solution dyeing process, the colored pigments are injected into the polymer solution before the fiber is formed. The colors maintain their intensity longer and do not fade with the action of sunlight.

ADVANTAGES OF SOLUTION-DYED FIBRES

The benefits of solution-dyed fibres are not immediately visible; you may not notice any difference from those that are not dyed

However, with daily use, its value becomes evident. As the yarn is completely dyed to the inside, it is almost impossible to fade or bleach it.

Solution-dyed acrylic fabrics are one of the strongest, in terms of colour durability, in the textile industry.

They are ideal for applications in the healthcare and hospitality industries, as they can be cleaned with hard, anti-germ substances, such as diluted bleach, without losing their vitality. They are also ideal for outdoor use, both in residential and commercial environments.
