PP polypropylene fiber
PP (Polypropylene) fiber is regarded as the least energy and water consumption fiber among the petrochemical fiber. After being exposed to sunlight for a long time or buried in the soil, it will naturally crack and reduce to carbon and hydrogen after a certain period. Furthermore, it will not produce toxic gases harmful to the human body when burned. It has the following characteristics: lightweight and warmth (lighter than water, 0.91 g/cm3), the thermal conductivity is the lowest among all fibers, which can maintain the body temperature more effectively. It is a hydrophobic fiber and is difficult for bacteria to grow on the surface. Therefore, it can achieve the antibacterial and deodorizing effect, and it will not reduce the efficacy after washing and wearing. The material has a low moisture content (0.05%), the drying speed is 11.1%/min, which is the fastest among all fibers. It is suitable for the table cloth of home furnishings and outdoor sports fabrics. It can also be used for medical bed towels, duvet covers, clothes, gloves, and masks, etc.
