Back in the days, our mothers had to sit at a loop overnight to weave fabric even after hard farm work. Children had to bring enough mulberry leaves to feed silkworms. The advent of synthetic fiber freed people from the hard labor of making clothes. Synthetic fabric borrowed the idea of a silk worm producing thread, and now we have various kinds such as nylon, polyester, acrylic, and vynilon.
Among all those synthetic fabrics, let's look into the process of making polyester. First, polyester is made into small chips like chocolate chips, and then is melted into a viscous liquid. After that, liquefied polyester is reeled off and is twisted into a thread. That thread is used to weave polyester fabrics.
Diverse uses of synthetic fabric
Consumers often think of clothes when it comes to the use of synthetic fabrics. In fact, synthetic fabrics have a wide range of practical uses. However, starting from clothing, we can find synthetic fabrics everywhere in everyday commodities like buildings, cars, toys and even cushions. Especially Recycled Polyester Staple Fiber is used in mattresses, padding, and quilting as well as in car interior materials, sound-absorbing materials and insulation. It is also used as fillers for pillows and cushions. Because the material is used in daily life, Kumhofibe produces it with extra special care. In the process of making polyester into chips, Nano silver is injected in the polyester chips for antibacterial and anti-mold purposes. Mattresses made with these chips are commercialised into antibacterial mattresses so that consumers can use them without worrying about hygiene.
New Environmentally-friendly technology, Recycled Polyester Staple Fiber
Recycled Polyester Staple Fiber is an environmentally-friendly technology that produces eco-friendly fabrics through recycling. Once PET bottles are used, they go straight into a garbage bin and become the main reason of pollution, because PET bottles take a very long time to decompose. Those PET bottles are the main ingredient for Recycled Polyester Staple Fiber. The bottles are melted and processed into small chips and then produce thread out of those chips. This technology can reduce pollution while securing another source of polyester at the same time. This cutting-edge technology is the power of Kumhofiber Industries. The company is preparing to open a recycling company in Los Angeles based on this technology. Kumhofiber Industries is expecting to expend its global market with this amazing technology.
