Now that memory fabrics are known by more and more people, today we will briefly talk about the related knowledge of memory fabrics.


Memory fabric (MEMORY FABRIC) refers to fabrics with morphological memory function, also called memory fabric or morphological memory fabric. "It refers to a product with a certain original shape, after being deformed and fixed, it can return to its original shape and characteristics under the stimulation of specific external conditions (such as heat, machinery, light, magnetism or electricity, etc.). The initial application is such as Some alloy products.

Market situation:

There are so-called half-memory, full-memory, and memory-like fabrics on the market. The quality of the fabrics varies greatly, and the prices vary greatly. The so-called "semi-memory" in the market refers to the use of "memory fibers" in the warp or weft direction, while "full memory" usually refers to fabrics made of "memory fibers" in both the warp and weft directions; many manufacturers also use it. Ordinary polyester yarn is twisted and treated with light alkali or non-alkali to lie in memory fabrics. Most of these fabrics feel jerky, not strong, and have poor elastic recovery after deformation and are relatively weak.

Some people also use PU coating to improve the elasticity of such counterfeit memory fabrics. The hand feel is somewhat similar to real memory. However, due to the inherent shortcomings of counterfeit memory fabrics, there is still a big difference from real memory fiber fabrics. . Real memory fiber fabrics can be deformed at will. When the deformation occurs, the bending part is a fabric instead of a line, which is easy to recover, and has great elasticity and toughness.

Material features:

The raw material contains biological "PDO (1,3-propanol) made from grain starch (glucose), which has the function of absorbing moisture and wicking perspiration. Clothing made of its fabric does not require external support. It can independently maintain any shape and can present any folds, and it can be completely restored to a flat state after flicking with the hand, without leaving any creases, and the shape retention is permanent.

This kind of fabric has good wrinkle recovery ability (good wrinkle effect and recovery ability are the characteristics of the latest international trend of functional fabrics), comfortable hand feel, soft luster, fine and soft texture, good drape, pollution resistance, chemical resistance, Dimensional stability, anti-static, anti-ultraviolet and other characteristics. The most important thing is that with "memory", the fabric becomes non-iron and easy to care. Due to the complete maturity of domestic memory products, relevant textile professionals predict that memory clothing will be the mainstream fashion product in the market in the next 2-3 years.

Memory fabric is suitable for suits, windbreakers, jackets, ladies suits, etc.
