What is Microfiber Yarn?

2014/7/18      view:

Microfiber consists of very fine threads of polyester and polyamide (nylon) that combine to form a single thread.Microfibers are so thin (100 times thinner than a single strand of human hair) that when they are woven together they create a surface area of 40 times more than that of a regular fiber-creating an expanded surface area with dramatically enhanced absorbing power due to the capillary action of the fine threads.Microfiber is traditionally defined as a fiber with a denier of less than one.Denier is a measure of thinness of fiber and is the weight in grams of a continuous fiber of 9,000 meters.

Microfiber has two polymers:Polyester is lyophilic or has an affinity to oil,so that oil and grease adhere directly to the fibers.Polyamide is hydrophilic,which means it has an affinity to water.As a result,any type of dirt is very quickly and completed removed with microfiber,leaving  a sparkling clean,streak-free surface.Microfiber cleans without streaking,smearing,scratching or leaving lint.Microfiber is safe to used on all delicate surfaces.It will clean without scratching or harming the surface in any way.

Differences Between Ordinary Cloths & MicroFiber Cloths:

ORDINARY CLOTH   MICROFIBER CLOTH  

·    Tends to push dirt and dust.

·    Residue is left behind on the surface area
you’re cleaning.

·   The structure of ordinary fiber cloth allows it to hold very little dirt.

·   Most do not absorb quickly much liquid.


         


                     

·     Millions of tiny ‘scoops’ pull dirt and dust up inside the cloth where they remain until washed away.

·     Results are clean, streak free surfaces.

·  Using water helps emulsify dirt & oil making it easier for the microfiber cloth to pick it up.

·    Its high absorbency will quickly clean up spills.
