How Are Down Jacket Fabrics Made?
1. Waterproof coating fabrics. These fabrics are similar to jacket fabrics. They are waterproof and moisture permeable. They are generally used for high mountain professional down jackets. But the difference is that the overall fabric will be lighter and softer than the jacket fabric. In addition, because down jackets are generally used in cold environments, they are mainly targeted at the melting water of ice and snow solid water, so the water pressure requirements of the fabric will not be as high as the jackets, and most down jackets made of waterproof fabrics do not require pressure. Glued. Another point to note is that some low-cost down jackets use non-breathable coated fabrics in order to prevent leakage. If it is only for daily wear, it can be reluctantly considered.
2. The density of high-density waterproof fabric itself is very high, generally above 290T. Then through the high-temperature fusion of the surface fabric to reduce the post-treatment process of fabric voids, improve the velvet resistance. The lightness and softness of the fabric is the highest among all down jacket fabrics, and it also has windproof, water-repellent and breathable properties. This type of fabric is the most widely used fabric for down jackets and down sleeping bags, but the level of post-processing technology has a great impact on the fabric's down resistance. At present, some outdoor brands use ultra-light and dense materials to increase the water-repellent, water-repellent and anti-drilling functions of down jackets.
3. Ordinary woven fabrics plus anti-fleece fabrics generally use low-density nylon or polyester. When making down jackets, adding anti-fleece fabrics on the inner side of the fabric can play a role of anti-fleece and has good anti-fleece performance. The disadvantage is that the anti-flannel fabric affects the softness of the down jacket and increases the weight of the whole garment. The most important thing is that if you use inferior anti-flannel cloth, the air permeability of the down jacket will be greatly reduced, and after washing, the anti-flannel cloth is easy to break or agglomerate. Another way is to make anti-flocking treatment, the process is to brush a layer of anti-flocking glue on the inner layer of the fabric, the fabric feels very bad, and it is not breathable.
