Firstly, The differences between bamboo fiber fabrics and polyester fiber fabrics:

(1) Different processes:

1. Bamboo charcoal fiber: Moso bamboo is used as raw material, and a new calcination process and new technology of pure oxygen, high temperature and nitrogen barrier delay are used to make the micropores inherent in bamboo charcoal more refined and honeycombed, and then combined with the honeycomb micropores Structural trends of polyester modified chips made by melt spinning.

2. Polyester fiber: commonly known as "polyester". It is a synthetic fiber obtained by spinning polyester obtained by polycondensation of organic dibasic acid and dibasic alcohol, referred to as PET fiber, which belongs to polymer compounds.

(2) Different characteristics:

1. Bamboo charcoal fiber: It has the characteristics of moisture absorption and breathability, antibacterial and antibacterial, warm in winter and cool in summer, green and environmentally friendly. The most distinctive feature of bamboo charcoal fiber is that each bamboo charcoal fiber has a honeycomb microporous structure that runs through the inside and outside. This unique fiber structure is based on bamboo charcoal fiber, which can make 100% of the functions of bamboo charcoal come into play. 

2. Polyester fiber: the biggest advantage is that it has good wrinkle resistance and shape retention, and has high strength and elastic recovery ability. It's durable, wrinkle-resistant, iron-free, and non-sticky. It is currently the largest variety of synthetic fibers.

Bamboo charcoal fiber has better warmth retention than polyester fiber.

(3) Different prices:

1. Bamboo charcoal fiber: relatively expensive.

2.Polyester fiber: The price is relatively cheap. The rapid development of the petroleum industry has also provided more abundant and cheaper raw materials for the production of polyester fiber. In addition, the development of chemical industry, machinery, electronic white control and other technologies in recent years has made the production of raw materials , fiber forming and processing processes have gradually become short-range, continuous, automated and high-speed. Therefore, polyester fiber has become the fastest growing and most productive type of synthetic fiber.


Secondly, Main characteristics of bamboo fiber fabrics

The main characteristics of bamboo fiber are:

1. Silky, soft and warm, like "silk satin": Bamboo fiber has fine unit fineness and soft hand feeling; good whiteness and bright color; strong toughness and wear resistance, and unique resilience

2. Moisture absorption and ventilation, warm in winter and cool in summer: The cross-section of bamboo fiber is covered with large and small oval pores, which can absorb and evaporate a large amount of water instantly.

3. Antibacterial and antibacterial, the antibacterial rate is 94.5%

4. Green and environmental protection, anti-ultraviolet: Bamboo fiber is a green and environmentally friendly material extracted from raw bamboo. It has the characteristics of bamboo's natural anti-mite, anti-odor, anti-insect and negative ion generation.


Thirdly, Advantages and disadvantages of bamboo fiber fabrics: 

Advantages of bamboo fiber fabrics:

1. The molecular structure of bamboo fiber fabric determines that the fabric will have strong wear resistance and toughness, so it will not pill even if it is used for a long time.

2. In addition to its good breathability, bamboo fiber also has moisture absorption and quick-drying properties. This feature makes bamboo fiber socks popular.

3. Bamboo fiber can also be blended with other fibers, so that the characteristics of each fiber can be blended together to make the fabric functions more diverse.

4. The most attractive feature of bamboo fiber is its sterilization. Bacteria will die soon after staying on the fabric.

5. Bamboo fiber fabric also has certain health effects, can absorb moisture and eliminate odor, and is comfortable and fashionable. 

Disadvantages of bamboo fiber fabrics:

1. The extraction process of bamboo fiber is relatively complex and more difficult than the extraction of cotton and linen fiber, and some chemicals will be produced during the entire processing.

2. Although bamboo fiber is tough, it is relatively brittle. If it is twisted hard, the fabric may be damaged. However, if it is blended with other fibers, this problem can be solved. Only fabrics with 100% bamboo fiber content will have this problem.

From the above points, bamboo fiber is really good. Bamboo fiber is produced using patented technology. It uses bamboo as raw material and undergoes special high-tech technology processing to extract cellulose from bamboo, and then produces regenerated cellulose fiber through processes such as rubber manufacturing and spinning. Bamboo charcoal fiber is cellulose fiber extracted from naturally growing bamboo. It is the fifth most abundant natural fiber after cotton, linen, wool and silk. Bamboo charcoal fiber has good breathability, instant water absorption, strong wear resistance and good dyeing properties. It has natural antibacterial, antimicrobial, anti-mite, deodorant and anti-UV properties.

Bamboo fiber fabric is also widely used in various underwear at present, and it is also one of the preferred fabrics for high-end underwear. Our Unitex underwear supplier in China is committed to the production of various high-quality underwear, providing a variety of men's and women's underwear, and we look forward to cooperating with you.
